What a difference a week makes! This time last week I was strolling along the esplanade in beautiful Weymouth, ice-cream in hand. Sun shining, happy smiling faces all taking in the last remnants of Summer warmth.
In stark contrast today is dull, wet and decidedly dreary in my little corner of Bedfordshire. How fortunate we were to be blessed with blue skies and sunshine throughout our jaunt to the stunning Dorset coast. From start to finish we couldn't have asked for more.
We walked for miles along the coastal paths, passing the most fabulous sea front properties. I couldn't resist taking a snap of the stunning double bay-fronted houses. A girl can dream......
All that sea air really worked up an appetite, we were proper 'hank marvin'. Copious amounts of fish and chips were consumed throughout our stay, from the Old Harbour, Fish 'n' Fritz, and Bennetts on the harbour-side. All scrummy.
With children at school, the seafront was fairly quiet. Lots of coach parties of retirees were making the most of the peace and quiet. It was lovely to see the beach front vendors so busy, especially so late into the season. I imagine they were grateful for the extra trade the unseasonably mild weather had brought in.
The low light every evening was sublime, bathing the quay in a golden hue. Our holiday home was afforded the most spectacular sunsets every evening too. We were truly spoilt.
Back home, rested and ready for the Autumn now. Lots of cosy nights with my crochet are ahead. The Bake-Off final is tomorrow. Come on Nadiya....!!! x x x
