DRENCHED IN DORSET!

Had a fantastically British August holiday experience this weekend, SUN, RAIN AND MORE RAIN!!!!!

I was back in West Bay to stock up and tidy up the unit The Customs House. Pleased to say that sales are going very well. So hurry up and get down there to get your hands on some vintage inspired art!!

Ominous clouds over West Bay, run to The Customs House next door for shelter and shopping!!!

The wonderful Arcane Publishing's haul of books!

Rest of the unit, hurry up, the retro footie stuff is going like hot cakes!


Really pleased to have also made it to the Buckham Fair. This fabulous show is organised by the actor Martin Clunes and his wife Philippa. It has become a real part of Dorset's yearly calendar and Martin is very much a hands-on part of it all, he really looked like he was thoroughly enjoying himself. 
Everyone there braved the awful weather, which finally cleared,  and were treated to some great events. My fave was The Southern Golden Retriever Society Display Team, who were brilliant!



Somme-like conditions at the Buckham Fair!

Cute 'Thelwell' type pony, looking for a Polo!

It was all too much for her though!

The brilliant Golden Retriever Display Team!!

Action shot of a clever dog doing the assault course. And just look at that scenery in the background!

The Grand Finale of the day was the Heavy Horse Show. Here is Martin Clunes again, this time proudly showing off his Clydesdale horse, which won 1st Prize in its class.


As the sun decided to hang around a bit we finished our day with a fantastic stroll down at Cogden Beach, which is a lovely stretch of the huge Chesil Beach.



Lovely yellow poppies actually growing on the beach at Cogden.

Just the two of us! Down on Chesil Beach.
