Jonny Does Walkies and Delicious Suppers


Fashion friend D and I ventured out on coastal hike on a super sunny morning, the kind of weather we are so getting used to now. D and I looked the part at the start, I think she even had a rucksack and I had trail mix. So with the whole hiking scenario we were. Led by the super fit and ever charismatic Jonny, that is of Jonny does Dinner and his equally fit and perky dog Ralph. Read more

Seatown Suicidal Sheep

The big one looks like the sheep that “likes its food a lot”, on Shaun the Sheep. Spotted these and pro photographer hubby snapped away, hence slightly better quality shots than usual. Read more

Bottle Inn, Marshwood

A West Country pub, simple and as one would like to envisage it (not the infamous rural scene when pub goes silent on entry);  flagstone floor, dog and a  real community atmosphere with super friendly new owners. Highlight of the week is Friday night when the curry bus circa 1960 is parked outside. Read more

Pilsdon Pen, a walk and a great view

Its one of those special sunny Autumn days and calls for a big vista and a stroll. Pilsdon is the 2nd highest point in Dorset and the Pen part of its name comes to light when you reach the top ( a steep but short climb): an Iron Age fort which you can walk around the edge of  for an incredible 360 degree view. Today the view extends for miles and the Jurassic Coast shimmers in the distance. Complete peace (apart from 3 rowdy  children and a selection of cows). Read more

Coastal Path, Seatown to Golden Cap

Seatown is the perfect spot when you want to be away from the crowds but still have facilities. There is a pub (okay), a shop and loos. Perfect for a stop over on the coastal path walk. J and I parked at Langden Hill which is on the West side of Seatown; its a super quick and easy walk up to the Golden Cap to catch a view to die for with a 360 degree vista. Read more

Exmouth Beach, The Geoneedle, Orcombe Point

Stick East in Exmouth and all will be well. Miles of sand and at low tide the most Cornish of beaches appears; rock pools and fresh sand with not a soul in sight but with a steep cliff of rich red Devon earth.

There is a great walk up the cliff to The Geoneedle either via path from the road or via a beautiful rusted ladder from the beach only exposed at low tide, it must have many an aquatic tale to tell. Read more
