Visited West Bay on Saturday afternoon and this blog came to mind. It was lovely and sunny and very busy.
I have visited before and felt that it was an unloved place. It definitely wasn`t on Saturday.

H Lucy, I've just come across your web site while trying to find out how to sew granny squares together as I am a novice at crochet. I found your web site really helpful. I so enjoyed your blog about your Easter break in Dorset. Our home is in Warwickshire but for 25 years we have owned static caravans in Swanage Dorset and spend as much time as we can there. I'm here now writing this while looking out at Swanage Bay. We have very fond memories of holidays in West Bay, Eype and Bridport before buying our first caravan. I will be following you for hints and tips on crochet and to follow your visits to beautiful Dorset.


I read this blog just before a friend was off to
Dorset for a week. showed it to her and as a result they went to a
Abbotsbury and West bexington beach and loved them both..All thanks to you!!!

I am very lucky to live here myself, well just across the border in South Somerset, but your delightful blog has made me look at the places I visit frequently in a very different light!!! I believe you get comfortable where you are and just go about day to day routines without remembering or taking in the amazing world we have around us, right on our doorstep!! You and your blog are fab inspiration, thank you!!!


Have you been to the cafe at West Bexington? It doesn't have regular hours but the interior is very 1950's, and part of it reminds me of my school tuck shop! They make good mugs of tea too! Sarah

Lovely photos - looks like a lovely relaxing holiday! We packed so much into our recent break I think I need another week off to just relax... and crochet! Harmony blanket is looking fab too, can't wait for the ta-dah! xx

Cool week of fun! It couldn't be more different than my week away in London, but holidays are good wherever you go. And even though we were in London, we took things at our pace, didn't cram the days full (which is too easy to do in London!) and came back happy and relaxed. Can't believe the daily round of school starts again!

Sounds heavenly Lucy. I'm a Cornish lass now living in Somerset and the sea calls to me too. I literally drink it in when I return. You've made yet more precious memories for you all to treasure, J9 x

What a wonderful trip! The sea shore is good for the soul 😊. Looks heavenly! Thanks for sharing Lucy, I always just feel cozy after reading your blog 😊. One of my family's favorite ways to make s'mores is with a Reese's peanut butter cup! 😊 two graham crackers,one Reese's and a gooey toasted marshmallow equal heaven! 😊 💜 have a wonderful week! God Bless!


Oh! A gorgeous post, and you are so clever! I'm always losing my needle between the sofa cushions, on the floor, in the blanket...

But your cute little attachment to your scissors is such a great idea! I will be making one very soon, and then there will be no excuse for not doing my ends as I go ;)


Lovely pictures! I live a long way from the sea now, but my heart belongs there and I especially love British shingle beaches - they evoke my childhood so strongly.

I love it when you share things that are specific to the UK. If I saw "digestive biscuits" in a store, I would have had no idea what they were! I certainly wouldn't have guessed they were yummy cookies! :) I like the idea of using them to make s'mores. The graham crackers and Hershey bars we use are a bit messy. It would be nice to have the chocolate already attached to the cracker/cookie/biscuit. :)


Just wonderful as always Lucy. So glad you had a happy family time back in Dorset.

I just love reading your blog, so full of inspiration and all the wonderful memories that you make, it is a joy to read.


Aha! English s'mores are made with Chocolate Digestives, I see! I'm writing from Michigan but we can get McVities products at our local grocery store. Will definitely try! Lovely photos!


We spent the same week as you in beautiful Swanage. Dorset is indeed a beautiful county. Thanks for sharing with us

My goodness, your blog is such a treat. It's great to see the seaside blanket out and about! I am going to try to make this for my father-in-law this Christmas to brighten up his bland bachelor style apartment. :) I especially love your blog as I feel like I am seeing so many delights and sights of the UK as I have never been there (but hope to, someday.) xo

Wendy Bassett

Lovely photos of a lovely place. Thanks for the reminder of my "home territory" Lucy.


We holidays between Bridport and Beaminsterr for many years, Burton Bradstock being our beach. But we visited the places in your photos. So lovely to be reminded of that beautiful county.

Mary Sullivan

vicarious bliss


Gorgeous seaside reflection post. Did you make your own little fishy scissor keep (I'm guessing, yes!!) and will this feature in a pattern......*said with a hopeful big grin*


Hi Lucy
Is it possible to purchase the baby ripple blanket pattern and yarn pack from you please?


Sounds like an an idyllic week and very HFW. Dorset is a beautiful county, I holidayed there 15 years ago and remember walking from Charmouth up Golden Cap. How my legs ached the next day.
Have just started Jolly Chunky and loving it so far.

Judith Solecki

Lovely photos and descriptions of "I want to be there" places.
Were you able to spend time with your Mum? How is she doing?

CL in CO

Lucy, you make me homesick for Dorset and I've never even been to Dorset!! Would love a late afternoon barbeque on the beach, and what a brilliant idea for S'mores. Will have to try this next time I have a fire in the firepit on the deck.
