We had a wonderful few days in Dorset last week, when it was nearly summer and the days were hot and sublime.
There was a day at Bournemouth on the beach with
Master T and
and Mr T and little Miss F , Mrs T and yours truly- note the crochet flower on hat!!
A day in the New Forest
and picnic time– give a man a stove outside and he will make coffee, heat soup…
Here is the Rufus stone
and here the Knightwood Oak , 500 years old
The Forest still has a magical quality despite all the cars, goodness knows what it would be like in July and August.
We visited the Tolpuddle Martyrs museum- more of them tomorrow
I can’t tell you just how pretty Dorset is, here’s trying with one picture
Then onto Weymouth, a busy little harbour
Final stop was Dorcester (Casterbridge for all Thomas Hardy fans)seen here from
the iron age fort of Maiden Castle.
Lots of churches to share and some random pics to come. Hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend. Great to go away but good to be home.
