Breakfast on the beach
The school holidays have started and many people will be heading down to Dorset on their holidays. The population of Weymouth increases by around 10,000 each day in the next six weeks.To avoid the crowds we either visit the less popular areas or go out early in the day. On Saturday morning we decided to go out for a breakfast. Would you like to join us too?
We took the coast road and headed for West Bay. The views from the coast road are spectacular and we have it almost to ourselves -(we were in the car, my cycling isn't up to this standard!)
It is a beautiful morning at West Bay.
Our destination is the Watch House cafe, it is not easy to find. Can you see it just in the distance to the right of the old Methodist church?
It is positioned right on the edge of the beach. such a wonderful location. Luckily we are one of the first to arrive. We have the choice of the best outside table so we can sit and take in the view.
I'm sorry you can't join in with the food too,which is all locally sourced. We don't eat much meat, but I couldn't resist the bacon with my poached egg and granary bread. Do you ever go out for breakfasts? When the children were much younger they used to wake up early and in the summer we would go out for breakfast picnics (sorry D & H for producing this picture from our archives!) This obviously ceased when they became teenagers!
It was already 20 degrees centigrade before 10 o'clock -we are beginning to feel hot. Daisy needed a walk in the shade, it's just as well Abbotsbury Gardens is full of trees and on the way home too.
Thank you for once again for joining us on one of our outings, it is always wonderful to have your company. hank you also for sharing lots of your donkey stories in the last post, I enjoyed reading them. It good to see some many donkey sanctuary supporters out there too! Finally a big welcome to A. Shipley.
