Some of my (and a West Country Julie Andrews) favourite things:
- The Sea
- Lyme Regis
If these are some of your favourite things then you can you can enjoy them all at an event led by best selling author, speaker and creativity expert Chris Baréz-Brown on May the 10th. The edible part of lunch isn’t included but the rest is. Hugging is preferable but optional. No money changes hands.
Even though I live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, at times it can feel a little claustraphobic and the desire to ‘escape’ within my immediate periphery seeps in. Sometimes a jaunt around the back streets of Bridport can do the trick but if I want to properly ‘escape’ there is no finer place than Cogden Beach. I have mentioned this amazing spot in the past but it felt like a reminder was required… Read more
Forgive the tardiness in the writing up of this post. The clement weather seems to have made time just fly away, less hibernating more doing. Great.
It was end August and the day started cold and rainy. The rendezvous point was the Soft Rock Café (yes it’s real), Charmouth Beach; friend and her 2 plus my 3 small ones and a plethora of people in anoraks keen to learn about fossils. Read more
Great excitement amongst all @lymeregis.
There is a new sea wall, a useful coastline protection that doubles up as a rather lovely walk from town beach, east towards Charmouth.
Perfect fishing spot… Read more
My long suffering husband J didn’t get out much when he was a child growing up in Dorset. The kids and I endure long stints of him reminiscing about the trips he did do, most of which were within a 30 mile radius of his home. We indulged him the other day with a visit to Maiden Castle and we got the sense of freedom that he must have experienced as a kid. Read more
Beautiful day on Saturday. Super sun, super blue sky, super cliff walk, super wave like cliff top grass. Not so super landslip on the East beach. Right by that Broadchurch spot. That will ruin continuity for the next series, apparently on air later this year. Maybe they can use the end of the pier instead as the focal spot of the show, death by crab line? Read more
The amazing photographer friend J, sent me these shots during yet another day of gusty winds and big white crested waves. J took a picture of someone taking a picture of the sea and getting caught by a wave. Read more
Not sure I can really write about Lyme Regis seafront again. It’s not interesting to most of you am sure, but it makes me very happy indeed does that view. So sorry, here we go. More Lyme. The calm after the storm. Read more
Tried to come to the Crab House Cafe before but I was so badly organised ie. it was totally booked and for some strange reason I seem to think that no booking would be required. But it is soooo good that booking is of course essential. Read more
In my Summer ,which mainly involves complete chaos combined with a lot of fun, the Autumn catch up can take a while before I get in the swing of things.
Hence I found some forgotten photos taken in August which sent me straight back to a beautiful sunny spot… Read more
