Hello everyone, I'm back from Dorset!!

Wow, what a fantastic time I had....
Once more we traversed this amazing county, finding all new wondrous places and going back to old faves.

The Jurassic coastline is just stunning. Fossils, red cliffs, white cliffs, sheer drop cliffs, sandy beaches, pebbly beaches, huge stones, tiny stones, dogs running wild, adults running wild, there was something for everyone!
And then there was the countryside... cute villages, wild heathlands, lush green valleys, sheep, cows, hilltop chapels, hidden ruins and an amazing array of wild birds.

And fear not vintage fans, there is an abundance of superb shops and whole warehouses chock-a-block full of vintage and antiques. Just pop along to Bridport, Lyme Regis and Dorchester for some of the best places I've ever been to.

I'll stop waffling now and just show you some pictures!!!
Here goes...........

The magnificent sweep of Chesil Beach from Portland.
Check out the white café called Quiddles in the foreground for a great cup of tea!

Vintage splendour at the St Michaels Estate in Bridport.

An optical illusion at Kimmeridge Bay! A fisherman is seemingly dwarfed by
a World War 2 pillbox, whilst Clavell Tower looms in the distance.

Cute cottage alert! This one presiding in the lovely village of Kingston.

Magnificently moody scene at Maiden Castle. One Roman and his dog!

Someone has a sense of humour!!
This is on a very exposed coast path near Worth Matravers.

The majestic Portland Bill lighthouse.

Wow, a huge fossil!!
Found this at Winspit Bay.

Mysterious arch at Abbotsbury...
The sign in the corner warns not to eat the mushrooms,
conveniently posted on the cemetery gate!

The stunning cliffs at West Bay.
No Photoshop here, just amazing natural colours.

Can you spot the 3 mad swimmers off West Bay beach?!
Beautiful sunset and a distant rain shower adds to the scene.
