Down pirates lane

Ahoy my hearties!  Let's take a walk down Pirates Lane towards the sea.










Could there be a sailing boat waiting at the bottom of the lane with maybe Jack Sparrow aboard?


                                                     No that was only in my dreams!


 The only sparrows to be seen are in the hedgerows, and the only excitement and terror is caused by lots of dogs in the water chasing each other and having fun! They did create some terror in Daisy, who is very timid and kept close to our side!



Sorry if I disappointed you, it's just another peaceful location with spectacular views! (I did some research and couldn't find out the reason why it was called Pirates Lane.)



My eye is always instantly drawn to the fisherman's huts on the Chesil bank opposite.








 Daisy has to report that apart from those dogs she didn't find any mysterious goings-on either!



Thank you so much for all the lovely comments and best wishes that you left us in my last post. Welcome to my new followers Rambler, Earth apple JaneShane at Roses Lace and brocante, and E Rickett .

Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  1. Oooo!! Only 2 more land-locked weeks and I shall be very near Pirates Lane! If I get the chance, I will try to find it, as it looks a fabulous place. Maybe I will be lucky enough to see Jack Sparrow!!!!

    1. If you see Jack Sparrow let me know! I have been meaning to show you what has happened at Brewers Quay before you came down. If you need some directions to pirates lane let me know.

    2. Oh! Yes please for directions!! Don't think we will have time for Weymouth this time, Bridport Hat Festival will be my main entertainment!!! Would be very interested in what has been done to Brewers Quay when you have a minute though! Thank you, Heather x

  7. What a pretty spot. I love the fishermen's huts. My favourite address is Pirate Creek in a small town called Wilderness - it is near where my mum and dad live in South Africa, and really appeals to me! Julie

  8. Those fisherman's huts are my favourite. Pirate's Lane...very evocative.

    St Ives has some very unusually named streets. Maybe I'll do a post devoted to them!

    Lovely post. As always

  10. Pirates Lane, there must be a reason it's called that. The scenery is really beautiful, I love the fisherman's huts on the far bank.

  11. A lovely spot - I wonder what the link with pirates was in this place. I love your beautiful photos of the blue sea and sky - and love the photo of gorgeous Daisy, too. She does look as though she's hurrying back with news!

  17. Is it called Pirates Lane because of smuggling? That looks an ideal spot for a touch of illegal activity! Love the fishermen's huts, I could imagine living in one of those xxx

  20. "Ai begara" Sarah, cana see any pirates around.. Ahh..but the sea would have brought them to the cove and they would have made their way up pirates lane.. ! wonder what little house still has some stolen goods on their walls!
    Most beautiful photos of your area once again Sarah. I think i must make a visit there someday.

  24. Gosh, it's years and years since I've been to Chesil beach but your pics brought so many good memories flooding right back. And your cute little sea dog made me smile. Lovely post Sarah :)

  25. You always have such gorgeous photos of Dorset. You are a lucky girl to live in such a beautiful area! xoL

  26. You have so many beautiful and interesting places so near where you live! I was interested to read that Daisy is timid. Fergus is the same way. He will bark his head off at other dogs from a distance, but is quite the coward if they get too close. I have tried everything to get him over his shyness, but I have pretty much given up. I think it is just his nature. He and Daisy would make a great pair!

  27. Lovely photos Sarah, what a great place to take the dogs. Very interesting looking fishermen's huts.

  28. I could be tempted down that way if Jack Sparrow was in town! Apparently Johnny Depp was spotted in a pub not far from here, in Hartley Wintney and I'm still waiting to bump into him shopping. Might be a long wait! ( There's still plenty of seeds if you want some) Debbie xx

  29. Pirate's lane sounds wonderfully evocative. Lovely pic of Daisy too. So sorry to read in your previous post about your husband's health. I suspect there are few people these days whose lives haven't been touched by cancer in some way so there is lots of understanding out there, as well as sympathy and support. I'm sending you both lots of positive energy. CT x
