I am very familiar with the West Bay, Eype and Bridport area having spent many happy holidays at the campsite in Seatown/Chideock. Whilst I enjoyed looking at your photos from both this and your previous visit, they have made me feel desparate to re-visit this part of Dorset. Hopefully I may get to do it later this year.


The first thing I thought after a couple of the pictures was 'I'm sure that was in Broadchurch last week' and what do you know, you confirmed my suspicions.
Glad you had such a great time; wish I could have been to the sea already - there's time this year yet.

Thanks for sharing your holiday snaps with us. I love reading your tales and immersing myself in your story, x


oH MY we must have been there at the same time...??

I did a post about west bay and Broadchurch last weekish...we ended up at the bull, my new fave pub/hotel at bridport because it was so so cold!

It sounds like you had a wonderful week! You're sharing wonderful memories and times with your noisy little ones. :) and with us. Thank you!


Lovely pics and made me smile, it seems your favourite place are our favs too but I'm happy to share (and we could have bumped into each other last week!). I feel very lucky to live in beautiful West Dorset and have these wonderful places on our doorstep to enjoy whenever we want.
Thank you for your blog, full of inspiration and somewhere to escape from the chaos of little people in my house.


..."I wonder if there will ever come a time when they visit this place and don't yell or run?"... if there is, you'll miss it :o)

Lucy, Hi , Im so happy that you enjoyed your holiday. I know you must feel refreshed and raring to go.
I missed you and your creative adventures while you were away.
I live in Las Vegas, Nevada USA and it was quite warm and toasty here for the past couple weeks and now today it is very cold and rainy.
We dont have the sea or ocean to look at but we do have bright lights:)lol
Ok be blessed in your crocheting...Sherri


So beautiful places. I love it. England ist really nice. Thanks for sharing this photos.

Looks like you had a wonderful time Lucy, I was looking forward to your blog post as we are going to Cornwall in two weeks and I can't wait. Going to take yarn to get cracking on my own patchwork blanket, if I get my other one finished before we go :)

What a wonderful vacation you and your family had. I would love to visit England someday. The history is fascinating and I love the old buildings and villages. The sea and beach looked so inviting and your picnic to the old church was an afternoon to remember.


Lovely scenery on your trip. Too bad it was so cold and blustery though. I like the basket liner you're making. The colors are pretty.


We go to Rudge Farm near West Bay every year so seeing this pictures makes me anticipate the trip in the summer that we always do, glad the sun shone and that you all had a wonderful time :) x

A lovely visual journey, thanks Lucy, I know you always have a lovely time when you go back to Dorset. I have been SO GLAD of the sunshine these past few weeks - it helps get me through the extended cold season...pleeeeeeeeese let there be some warmth soon! Lx


I'm also a Dorset lover and never get tired of visiting.....not often enough though(sigh). Your photographs always inspire me to get my camera out and take a fresh look at what we have here in Norfolk to enjoy although maybe just a little lacking in those rolling hills lol...Thank you so much for sharing your world with us Lucy.

I love your holidays, how you think & just enjoy being with your family. Beautiful pictures, inspiring.


It looks such a wonderful place to be. I have visited West Bay once and would love to go back soon. Enjoy your week with the little people - housework can wait, there are memories to be made whilst they are still young :)


Yes, I wish I loved housework as much as holidays too. I think my house might be pristine if I did. :-) Lovely, Lovely sharing as always. Thank you!


I so enjoyed your post... pics and commentary! Simple pleasures of life are the very best! The beauty of the world is astounding. So blessed!


How wonderful. I think that turquoise color is the one I feel when I read your blog too; I feel refreshed, energized and inspired whenever I read one of your posts. :)


Lucy me encanta tu blog! You go to Dorset, I go to Mar del Plata!!! OOOOhhhh the sea! It's wonderfull! I continue inviting you to my place... Kisses!


Looks so lovely!! It has to be refreshing to get away to the sea.


Lovely photos! Thanks so much for sharing them. I love the ocean! We are already planning our summer trip back to the coast. I am trying not to wish the days away but I am bursting with excitment to go back! I am glad you were able to get out even though it was so cold. But kids never seem to feel the cold. I think it is because they run everywhere :)I have often been "silly Mom" and run with them. It really does warm you up! Cheers!


Wow, thank you for a quickie holiday in your cold Dorset, while I am here in warm Adelaide Australia. I loved your pics and descriptions, you give great Holiday Share!


I love your photos, so peaceful! One of my boys had a tantrum last time I was taking pictures but the photo just shows an apparently happy child! Love photos - so peaceful!
