Seen from Lymington and Keyhaven salt marshes during an early September day, hazy sunshine, light winds, does it get any better than this?
Dinghy racers gather just outside the Lymington river.
And further west, down off Hurst Castle the Keyhaven fleet also prepares for a start.
While others stay aboard in the harbour and catch up on a few jobs and maybe some maintenance in the nice weather while the wind is too light for sailing.
Fishing and crabbing off the old pier.
Taking the opportunity to row around safely in the flat calm.
Yachts lay quietly at their moorings as high water fills the channels among the marshes.
Children sailing and playing.
Horses enjoy a cooling walk along the shore.
