Beaulieu is well known for its connection with cars. It is home to the world-famous Beaulieu National Motor Museum. I went there as a child. I cannot remember too much about it, except I remember a car shaped like an orange. Literally. It was a giant dimpled piece of fruit with wheels and a windscreen. Our Coastal Path today (which was not very coastal at all – we were four miles inland at this point) would not take us to the museum, but it did take us by a garage.
I shifted my backpack uncomfortably, causing my dangling camera to swing on its strap. Perhaps browsing cars was not the best idea. We were, after all, supposed to be walking the coast, not driving it…
