We have had a weekend of grey skies....
but there is always something to look at out at sea as the light constantly changes.
The sea was very still and calm apart from the bow waves caused by passing boats.
Many of the parks and council gardens now have "Friends groups" attached to them who promote public awareness and enjoyment of these special places, as well as fundraising and carrying out various projects. Back in July they held a music picnic and paint afternoon and created these two fantastic boards. Do you have any local parks which have similar groups?
These are some pictures from our archive from sunnier times! Sandsfoot castle was built in 1541 and was one of Henry VIII's device forts. Together with Portland castle opposite they protected the whole of Portland harbour from foreign invaders. The gardens around the castle were designed in 1931 and have been a popular with locals and holiday makers ever since. There is a small cafw with outside seating and it is always a great place to have a coffee and admire the view!
Hope you had a bright and happy weekend whatever the weather!
