The are is always popular and continually teeming with life. From the busy naval dockyard at Portsmouth, the authors cruise slowly around the delightful rivers, creeks and harbours - to Beaulieu, Wootton and Poole - examining places to eat and drink, and absorbing the natural beauty of the wildlife in the more deserted spots, for despite the apparent bustle, one does not have to sail far to be completely alone.
