I was disappointed during my walk through the New Forest area of Hampshire because access to the coast was prevented by private property. But I did enjoy my short stroll along the sea wall at Lepe, which is just to the east of the mouth of the Beaulieu River. And when I saw this amazing house, perched on the water’s edge, I wanted to live there. I felt this was just the place for a writer or an artist to live.

Sea walk, Lepe, Ruth walking round the coast in Hampshire. So I asked my ‘artist in residence’ to paint a picture of this scene, from my photo. And here it is, with two figures who could be….?
