We went on one of our regular trips to see lovely friends in Devon last week. Saturday was spent in Dorset at Sherbourne and Maiden Castle near Dorchester and included a visit to Chesil Beach.
I adore Chesil Beach and every one of its 180 billion pebbles. I'm mesmerised by the crunch of the pebbles under my feet and the crashing of the waves on the shore.
I can lose hours there just playing with the pebbles and watching the waves. I love the wonder of the beach - it seems astonishing that nature can make something so beautiful and architectural. I'm endlessly fascinated by the power of the waves too. The sea is so deep so close to the shore - perfect for sea fishing - and there's something a little perilous about sitting so close to the edge.
