You always lighten up my day; visiting your blog full of colours, beautiful pictures and stories. Thank you so much !


We took our tourer to West Bay last October-just as the storms started.We could hear the stones on the beach being washed about by the sea from our caravan and it was amazing.


Have also been through the tank museum versus Lyme quandry - and did the same thing! 3 boys and their dad out for the day, and daughter and I (when she was 3) taking the bus from Charmouth for a shopping and beach day. She always goes to the Mermaid shop first thing whenever we go.


You have just reminded me of our happy visits to Lyme. It is really pretty and the Dorset coastline is lovely.


thank you for sharing such a treasure of a day! desperately need to visit dorset - maybe when my little girl is big enough to enjoy it as much as yours seems to have.


very enjoyable pictures and the post! thank you!


OH MY WORD, you are right! I would have stared at the beach huts ALL DAY! ha ha! I LOVED this post Lucy. Your pictures of the blustery weather are fantastic. I think so many people don't give enough credit to blustery beach days. They are truly atmospheric and invigorating.

Glad you had a super time away. It's always lovely to take a break and be by the sea......however, always nice to walk back through the front door!

Take care lovely xxxxxx

A lovely read and view, as always. I grew up in Aldeburgh, Suffolk for a few years. Fishing boats, sniffing my mum's pints of cider and scoffing teeny tiny shrimps are a few of the many memories I have.


Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos Lucy. Your narration really came from the heart. I honestly felt the peace and relaxation you experienced with your daughter on that lovely day. Absolutely priceless.


Yes, your daughter has beautiful eyes and they are the exact color of the water. Lovely.

Our DD has left London to live and work in Dorset, she loves the coast and also the village life. We've never visited Lyme Regis, your report has made me want to see it next time we go west.

Thanks, you are not only brilliant writing about crochet but also as a travel guide.


Lucky lucky you. What a beautiful day xx


I love Lyme too and I have the one of the best photos of my 6 and 4 year old girls in their bright flowery rain coats in front of those fishing nets - they are both smiling and the colours of the nets and the coats always make me smile. Happy hols. Jo x

Dear Lucy,

Another lovely post. I just to hear about you and you sweet family.
I have been a fan for a few years now and I always enjoy your posts.
Your bag is very pretty. I think I'll have to make one for me.
God Bless you and your family. I feel like you are all part of my family.
Take care '

Best wishes,
Aunt Bea


I love to see the places that are also familiar to me and my children through your eyes, we stay near west bay every year and travel to Lyme Regis and we love it. And I most certainly agree about the tank museum, challenging for female folk for sure! :)

Lovely Lucy I just wanted to wish you and your wonderful Family a Happy Easter, have an eggfastic time and thank you for all your fabulous posts. Warm hugs and loves


Hi Lucy,
your photos of Lyme Regis are really great, I’m sitting here in my kitchen and can go in thought with you through the streets of Lyme. We were so often there that I recognize immediately all the places on your photos. I am so happy about every picture that my husband is already a bit nerved, because he is just trying to figure a knitting pattern as I describe him the pictures :o). I hope we can manage this year to go to Dorset for our summer holidays again. It is a very long journey for us, it is a distance over 800 km.
Thank you so much for your great holiday report, I could hear the seagulls again :o).


This post has filled me with warmth, Lucy. Your heartfelt love of the seaside even at its wildest and rainiest, the golden memories you have created with your girl, the beauty that you capture with your camera and the sense that life really is wonderful most of the time are just some of the highlights for me. Thankyou- you do have a gift.

Your photos of Lyme Regis are lovely and brought back some very happy memories of our own family holidays there. Your daughter has obviously inherited your love of colour and her painted pebble is a lovely precious keepsake. :-)


What a lovely trip. I have three grown daughters who have children of their own so I don't get to do things with them as often as I would like, but I love when we have our "girl" days. I envy you and your wonderful little villages to visit. Thank you for sharing your wonderful day with your daughter.
Fondly, Mickie in Indiana


I love that you share your holidays with us. Lyme Regis is certainly a wonderful place to visit. I didn't grow up by the sea, but I feel a pull from it just like you. Thank you for the beautiful pictures.

Hi Lucy,
I've been following you almost from the very beginning of your blog. The photo of your daughter's eye in this post has us talking. Fabulous photo, what camera do you have?

The view from your childhood bedroom and the attic24 window are very similar. How lucky are you? I loved accompanying you on your day at Lyme Regis via the pictures. Wish I could have been there in person. Your daughter has beautiful eyes, truly the colour of the water. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us.


Your post comes at the end of a very sad time in our family we lost a relatively young niece, but you made my heart sing.the place I first met my husbands family, and her, was Lyme Regis and the picture of the front with the yellow building where we stayed, then the Bay hotel, brought back lovely memories. We spent our honeymoon and our 35th wedding anniversary there. We shall be going there in the summer at her request, it was the place she always wanted to retire to. Thank you for memories of very happy times.
