Another lovely post Lucy, and like us in Wasdale you had glorious spring weather (for the main part!). Precious family times, I haven't been to that part of Dorset but will make sure we get there sometime on one of our caravan trips maybe!! K.xx


WOW,more Stunning pics,why don't mine ever look like that lol.Brought back memories of our visits to Dorset,just Beautiful.It is pouring down here lol.By the way Lucy have just given you a shout out on my blog.Happy Easter.x


We have been returning to our special place near Padstow for over 30 years, we started going before children and now at their ages 30, 24 and 22 they still have to be with us, doing what we always do and being with the same people for our special week. Our 30 year old lives down there but is still talking of staying in the caravan with us whilst we are there. The 22 year old is very disappointed as he will have to miss this year due to his finals at uni. I know that it these 'same' holidays that will never ever be forgotten.


How beautiful! How absolutely delightful! (Both the pictures and the words.)


Looks a lovely place to visit.

I love your holiday posts.
Repeating , repeating that,s what children want , I saw that with my son and now with my grandson .
Doiing the same walk , sitting near the lake and threwing little stones in the water , visiting the mill , enjoying a sandwich and some drink just outside , such a pleasure to have him around and a second one is on her/his way in october.
So expiring the same mood as I visit my childhood surroundings and a few years ago I spend a day in Lyme with my husband , wonderful memory and nice to see your pictures. Love it!



It looks just beautiful. Best wishes from Barcelona.


Your posts are always a riot of colour and such a feast for the eyes! I just pop in for a treat every couple of days, it's like sitting at a window admiring someone else's view! x


Lovely photos - lovely memories in the making


Dorset is so very beautiful, we always enjoy our holidays there too. The kind of place you have to return to. England, in all her glory.

Thank you for such nice descriptions. What a lovely place.

I love coming here and always find your colours and the beautiful things you make and do, and all your joy in life such a tonic, but I don't usually comment here because you get so many! But your Dorset posts bring back so many memories and evoke so much nostalgia. We live in France now, have done for the last 17 years, but we were in Dorset for a year or two before we left, in Charminster and Eggardon Hill was one of our favourite places; we've still got three beautiful Jacobs sheepskins which we bought at a farm on the hillside there, which came from their own sheep. When I was very little, nearly 50 years ago now we went to Charmouth every holidays, we had an old pale green stationary caravan there called 'Lucy's Lodge'! We younger children would often stay there with whichever family members were around, even when my parents had to come home; Lyme and Bridport and all those place were a dear part of my precious childhood memories, which I later shared with my husband on our return there.

Thanks so much for bringing this all back so joyfully and vividly.

Thank you, Lucy for sharing your family vacation with us. It has brightened my Easter afternoon and for that I am grateful. Illness forced us to stay Very close to home this weekend so enjoying the world thru the Interwebs is our way of celebrating. Your blog is on the tour and we are loving it-every bit.

Happy BunBun Day !~!

I love that you enjoyed seeing a kookaburra! Here in my part of Australia, we have had two kookaburras feeding from my father's hand for a few years now, and - in a colourful torrent - we have visits from crimson rosellas, rainbow lorikeets and king parrots. They are all beautiful birds - the rosellas are a bit shyer, the lorikeets are called the 'rowdies', and the king parrots are curious about what's the other side of the window.

All is lovely as always, Lucy, and thank you so much for sharing. It's like a mini holiday just reading on the laptop!

Thanks again Lucy for sharing your holiday with us. Allowing us to see parts of England that I have never seen, but I am taking notes so that when I come to England from Australia, I can visit these beautiful spots. As a tourist you normally only see the tourist spots, but we like to go off the beaten track. I smiled when you said there was a Kookaburra - a liitle part of Australia there. Our family also had a favourite camping spot we went to each Easter at Augusta in Western Australia. It is on the mouth of a river, but the ocean is only metres away. We went with several families and their children. More the merrier, and the kids had so much fun. Our children still tell me they were the best holidays ever. Love your photos and your written blog. I feel like I am a part of your life - enjoying the scenery. Thanks again.


All the family loveliness, splendid views, time together and a Kookaburra too! The world sure is a wondrous place. Here in Australia the Kookaburra song goes something like this. Kookaburra sitting in the old gum tree, merry merry king of the bush is he... then there is the urban version...Kookaburra sitting on the electric wire, jumping up and down with his pants on fire! I wont go on because it only gets worse!!!




Thank you so much for sharing your spring holiday & your photos are lush... Spring is exploding on Vancouver Island BC Canada in rhododendrons, azelias, magnolias, and such. The colors are fabulous against all the new green foliage. Hugs, MO

So beautiful.


Lucy, one day I hope that you will live in Dorset again. It is obvious that it claims your heart. So glad the little ones love going to the same places. It becomes important family ritual. I think it's great. Thanks for sharing all the lovely pics.

It's all so beautiful, I love the carpet of pink petals, and the views from up high, how special to spot an albino deer, they're very rare here. Thanks Lucy as always for sharing it with us. :))
