A heck of a good time

We've just been to Devon (and Dorset) to stay with our lovely friends N and A and had, to quote H8: "A heck of a good time".

We sought (and found) fossils on Charmouth beach, greedily scoffed fish and chips at West Bay, struggled around a wind swept Lyme Regis (too rough for a trip along the Cob - remember how it looked on ITV's Persuasion? That's how it was on Friday.)

We had a barbecue (yes, really. It was raining, but A is a true Scot.) We made Jack O'Lanterns and we wrote on the night sky with sparklers and fireworks.

Did we want to come home? Heck, no.


  1. Glad to hear you had a great time! Fossil hunting is on my wishlist.

  2. I saw Lyme Regis in stormy weather too - it was wonderful! So moody and atmospheric.

    Great firework photographs!

  3. Funny, you can do all those things at home (finding fossils may be more illusive, though not impossible). Yet it's never the same as being on holiday.

    Did you take those firework photos with your small digital? Very impressive. Xxx

  4. Sound like you all had a sparkly time despite the weather. Good on you with your BBQ!

  5. Those firework shots are amazing! And fossil hunting and hunting for Captain Wentworth on the Cobb at Lyme Regis are two of my favourite activities... might have to dig out Persuasion for another watch. I mean, read.


I am sorry to have to add word verification thing again but I keep getting spammed.
