Last week my better half, my parents and I found ourselves at Thornham Marina (Boat Yard), which is on-route to Thorney Island which isn’t too far from Emsworth.
We were not in the area to visit the marina, it just happened to be a stopping point on a walk along the waterfront.
At a couple of points along the walk there were blackberries asking to be picked, and views waiting to be devoured as well.
The narrow footpath led us to Thornham Marina, which we admired. Past the boat yard the landscape opened up and the quietness was only interrupted by our occasional talking or a hello to a dog and its owner.
On-route back to the car we detoured into the boat yard in search of a drink, but their small café was alas closed.
Lined up were many a fine boat to admire and even though it was quiet, it is an active boat yard, such as people working on boats and new facilities being built.
We probably only spent an hour and a half or so walking along the waterfront, plus admiring the boats docked, but it was a pleasant location to visit.
