Well, as far as family holidays go, this one ticked all the boxes!!!
We had the beaches, scenery, fantastic accommodation.....and wonderful sunny weather! Brilliant!
I fell in love with the quaint little towns and villages. The houses made of stone, their gardens packed with flowers....nowhere ever seemed too crowded, too busy....just the way we like it!
Lyme Regis is just the most perfect little seaside town.
I got caught up in the detail of the house and buildings, so much to take in, so much individuality.....the windows, doors, mouldings, (think my family got fed up of me say "Ooooh look at that!")
I loved, loved, loved the colours too.....
Rows of beach huts, not as elaborate as the ones in Suffolk and Norfolk, but so colourful!
Oh and the boats, bobbing along by the waters edge.....I love boats!
We drove all along the Dorset and Devon coast, visiting little coastal towns, stopping off here and there, no plans, just doing as we pleased. Lots of lovely shops, more of that next time....and little purchases too, of course!!!
The picture above are of Hive Beach which was just stunning! Great cafe too!
Lots of wildlife, from the fantastic flowers to beautiful butterflies....we fed the birds each morning and watched an array of little beauty's, too quick for me and my camera, but the squirrel obliged! We also had rabbits, deer and a pheasant called Bart visit us each day!
The coastline is just amazing...we searched for fossils....founds a couple of tiny ones too but no whole skeleton this time!
These were the views from our holiday home...we looked out onto the most magnificent valley, the bottom right was taken at 5am, watching the sunrise whilst everyone slept, hooking away was amazing!
Talking of hooking away....I've brought a little vintage basket (or two, well actually three but who's counting!) to store my ever growing yarn collection! I hooked away, on the beach, in the car (not easy, especially around corners!) and looking out to my wonderful view!
Well My Lovelies, that's all for now, I'm afraid this wasn't planned as I hoped, not really my thing, and I know there will be loads I've missed out! I will do another post.....on shopping, lovely little shops, National Trust, and meeting special people!
We are off to Wales tomorrow so I will be quiet once again, if you are new here, Welcome....I hope you are enjoying your visits!
Thanks all who are popping over to Instagram to say hi, I won't be able to post any pictures whilst we are away as there will be no Internet! (I can't post from my phone)
Oh and I'm sorry my posts look a bit squashed, Blogsy seems to be squashing everything up and I'm not sure why!
Bye for now!
Ada Bea......still on Holiday High! :) xxx
Four have a fab holiday in Delightful Dorset and Devon!
