Hello there! Hopefully some of you out there will get to read this post. I am having the same old problem that I had with Blogger about a year or so ago - I do a post but it doesn't show up on reading list so unless you happen to drop by you won't know that a post has been written. I hope that this issue is resolved soon - last time it happened it took about six months!
Anyhow, I will carry on posting and will leave an FYI when I leave a comment on your blogs to let you know about the problemo!
After a few hectic days in London we returned to Hampshire but only for a few days before we took ourselves off to our base in Devon.
The above is a postcard that I spotted in a vintage shop window in Bridport. The original dog is in the shop.
We visited Bridport on a very cold day and unusually for us saw nothing that took our fancy in neither the vintage nor charity shops. We came away completely empty handed!
A few days later saw a complete turnaround in the weather. The skies were blue and it even felt warm enough to be outside without a coat but only when the sun was out, as soon as it was behind a cloud it was cold. Where to go on such a fabulous day - decisions, decisions. There was only one real contender, Lyme Regis - sun, sea, wonderful beach huts and ice cream. What more could a girl want!
I spotted the daffs in the hedgerow on the way there and made the OH pull over for the photo. I have him very well trained - he puts up with a lot! "Stop the car ... Can you reverse back a bit!"
When we got to Lyme we discovered that the car parks that we normally use were full with huge queues. You can tell when it's a Bank Holiday in Lyme!
We headed for a car park at the other side of town and were pleasantly surprised to discover that there were spaces left. We walked past the beach huts on the cobbled beach and I took many photos - surely not, I hear you shout!
KP had insisted on doing her own hair - "I want to try out pigtails, you always say that you'll do it and then you don't."
I would love to take a peek inside this house on the seafront.
Of course we were persuaded to part with money for an ice cream - a double one! "It is Easter. Can I have chocolate and mint choc chip!"
When I saw this I thought of Captain Haddock in Tin Tin - "Blistering barnacles!"
Not much writing but a lot of photos in this post.
We also visited Forde Abbey and Burrow Farm Gardens. Unfortunately, those posts will also be heavy on the photo front.
Until next time,
