Holiday snaps

Just a couple of my holiday photos, I have many more but don't want to bore you!!! I also have photos from my Uncle's party that I'll post another time.

We stayed at a little seaside village called Charmouth which is in Dorset but is only a couple of miles from the Devon border. Firsty here I am putting my toes in the sea....... I don't like going in the sea and wouldn't swim in it as I am a poor swimmer but I have to test the water every year if I can. It wasn't too cold actually.



We stayed on a caravan site called Seadown and this was the view from our caravan. When you followed the path it led to a small piece of grass and then to the beach and sea. You can just see the sea above the other caravan roofs. It was very beautiful.

Every evening after dinner we went down to the sea to the part along a promanade where the fisherman gathered. It was very relaxing we loved watching the sea and the fishing! This is me and my mom with their dog, Scamp. He loved it too. (Notice the bag by my mom's side? That's the one I made her!!)



This is the girls one early evening with Charmouth on the right and the bay of Lyme Regis in the back ground.

This was one of the hot days when I went down to the beach with the girls. They bought a new bikini just before we left and were glad they had chance to wear it. They had just been and bought an ice lolly as you can see!


On another hot day we went into Axminster and found a lovely little cafe where I had a lovely Mocha coffee. This is me with my mom..... it was too hot for her!!!


And finally this was taken at Lyme Regis on our last day which was a little bit windy, so all the sail boats were in the bay. I thought it made a colourful picture.

Back with my stitching next time.

What beautiful photos - lovely seascape, especially with the boats sailing in the background. Your daughters are beautiful, always looking so happy with their bright smiling faces :)
Thank you for sharing your photos - for this is as close to traveling over seas as I might get. So I truly enjoy viewing the photos of my blogging friends "across the big pond".

Looks like a great holiday! Did you read one of Jane Austen's books while there...I am sure one of them was set in Lyme Regis but I can't remember which one!
