Jolly Holiday 2011


I've just returned from a lovely week away in Charmouth in Dorset, where we stayed at the lovely 'The Old Manor House' which is a listed building, with some parts dating back to the 15th century! Charmouth is a really nice little village, right next to the busy hubbub of Lyme Regis, but with a very handy bakers/butchers/local shop which provided us with everything we needed! The beach (which is much calmer and quieter than those in Lyme) was only a 5-10 minute walk away, and as we took my little Cairn Terrier, we took her for walks there every morning and every evening. Needless to say, we all had a brilliant time, and I am very sad to have returned so soon! I would be very interested to visit again off-season, as I really can't handle holiday crowds, and you can still get super weather in autumn! We were very lucky with the weather, I actually got sun burnt on the first day, something I never achieved on our week in 30 degree Arles! Ahhhh Blighty!

Hope you enjoy the photo's, the good old Yashica was my only camera companion this year, I wasn't in the mood for medium format fuji friend!

Our Holiday!

Mollie first experience of the beach!

There are no words to describe this wonder of design...simply stunning!
My favourite house in Lyme Regis, right on the beach.

On our last evening, the boys decided to risk it!

Thom made a friend for life!

I have a lovely little Bridport shop to show you all soon! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
