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.


  1. Lovely photos . There is something hypnotic about the suck and break of the waves on Chesil Beach. You visited some of our favourite places in Dorset.

  2. Preseli Mags is "all at sea"? Well, yes. If she says so.
    With a beach like that, Bear might be in the same condition.

  3. Yes, I love it there too - great to be reminded of the place by those fabulous photos. Maiden Castle's a very special place, I think.

  4. I love beach walks. I had never seen a pebble beach until I came to England.
    Your trip sounds great.
    Only four weeks until we visit Wales.
