Delectable Dorset

Dorset is my most favourite place to visit in the UK, I love the rolling hills, the beautiful Beach's, the fab shops. Even though Lex has travelled most of the world he'd never been to Dorset, so we decided a weekend away for my Birthday and our Anniversary would be perfect and it was......

Day 1 - Friday (My Birthday)
Corfe Castle

Posing at Corfe Castle

Us at Corfe

From the top of the castle the views are stunning
There is a steam train from Swanage to Corfe, we didn't do this but I've done it before and can safely say its wonderful

Getting arty!

Day 2 - Saturday (Our Anniversary)
"Shopping day, aka Lex being very patient day"

Lyme Regis

One day we will own a camper like this one!

The harbour and view of the Golden Cap

Awesome shop!
Lex brought me two Cath Kidson jugs for all the sweet peas I keep cutting from the garden

Part of Lyme beach

The harbour again, those little lads had been mackerel fishing

The beach again

Saturday afternoon trip to Charmouth, its where all the fossils can be found


In the evening instead of going out for dinner we took a BBQ down to Eype beach and had sausage and bacon sandwiches!
On the way down to the beach we saw this cottage, one day I will live in a cottage like this

Lex being manly cooking on the BBQ


We stayed to star-gaze this was taken just as the sun set, a perfect end to a perfect day.

Day 3 -Sunday
"Beach Bums"

Durdle Door, Man of War and Lulworth Cove
(My favourite beach's in the world)
This is Durdle Door, its so peaceful here, even when the beach is full of people

Lulworth Cove

Picnic at Lulworth

Man of War

Day 4 - Monday

"Abbots & Monkeys"

Abbotsbury and Monkey World

A beautiful church in a little village called Abbotsbury

The view from the churchyard

Looking out over the pond

Pretty poppies

Cheeky chimp at Monkey World

Sadly this was the end of our trip, we had such a brilliant time and I'm pleased to say Lex liked Dorset nearly as much as I do and we are already planning another trip next year!

Check back tomorrow for " Teddy take over"
