Our week has been spent outside, all week! It has been beautiful. In true English style, the weather has been all over the place. We’ve encountered sun, rain, hail and even snow! The snow was whilst we were sat on the beach too, we would not be beaten and preserved though!
Even our caravan site didn’t disappoint us, there were walks along but the coast and a beautiful chisel beach. We just had to look out our window to see the sun setting behind during the evening.
We stayed near Weymouth, so our beach visits consisted of driving there and we were not disappointed. For England, the sea was beautifully blue and the sand a lovely soft yellow. There were lines of beautiful shells to collect too. We stayed on the Jurassic Coast which is well known for its fossils and history. The views were breathtaking.
During or trip, we visited the Jurassic skyline which gave you a 360 view of Weymouth, Portland and the Jurassic Coast. The day was wonderful so the sky was clear and we could see for miles, worth every penny.
On Wednesday, the weather was hit and miss. A bit windy and it rained every so often, we decided to head out to Portland. What a treat. The sky was mostly clear again. We were even able to see the famous sea creatures of Portland and Jenson was so excited to see dolphins and seals in the sea in front of him. We drove around the island and kept to the coast were possible, stopping to take photos. We arrived at Portland Bill for some lunch, to check out the views and climb the lighthouse. Unfortunately, Jenson wasn’t tall enough so once we managed to console him, we continued our drive.
Finally, we visited stunning Lulworth. I had visited previously as a year 10 geography student studying costal erosion, naturally, I didn’t not care then but now I value the beauty! We didn’t do the walk from Lulworth Cover to Durdle Door as it is not buggy proof and as we were taking Emeline in the car for the journey home sowe were not encouraging cosy sleep!
The weather was chilly and very windy but that did not stop us, we visited both sides of the beach and climbed up and down the steps, Jenson was amazing!
I really recommend Dorset, a beautiful place to visit for all walks of life, young or old too. It is a tourist attraction too and there are lots of accommodation choices too.
