A week ago last Friday we had the day off and were planning a day out in Lyme Regis when we heard on the local radio that Brad Pitt was on location on a beach on Dorset, filming for his latest film, World War Z. It was a close call, but I'm afraid Lyme Regis still won the day!
I love the colours of these houses along the seafront, some of them are holiday cottages with amazing views over the sea.
The gardens were landscaped a few years ago and are magnificent at any time of year. We always have to walk through them and admire the views.
Looking back from the beach you can see the gardens in the background and the row of candy coloured beach huts in the foreground.
John and Daisy waited for me when I went to look at the antique and collectables centre. Luckily no one came by and wanted to buy her!
Daisy was a bit wary of those cats before she decided it was safe to have a drink! As a child I would zoom into these collecting tins if I saw them in the street and give them my pennies.
There are some lovely unique shops in Lyme Regis and the second hand bookshop is always one of my favourite shops. I could spend all day in here!
Another of my favourite shops is "Ginger Beer", I love the driftwood Christmas trees and must try to make one sometime. We finished the morning off to a visit to the pub, with a drink and snack.
And what of Brad Pitt - well he didn't film on the day we went to Lyme Regis they were still setting up.We didn't get over to Lulworth Cove over the weekend, as it was so bitterly cold and wet, so if you want to read more about his filming in Dorset see here,
I seem to be a week behind with my posts at the moment, sorry, hopefully I will start to catch up soon!
Thank you for all the comments from my previous post. The picture of Twinkle in the tree was very popular!
