In view of the cold weather we are currently experiencing I thought that it would be nice to remember the warmth of the summer sunshine, with a visit to Swanage.

Our favourite beach cafe.
This is the Wellington Clock Tower, it was originally built as a memorial for the Duke of Wellington and was located on the approach to London Bridge in London. The clock never kept good time and as the traffic increased the tower was in the way . It was dismantled and the rubble was given to a Dorset builder to use as ballast to fill the empty ships returning to the Dorset stone mines. It was rebuilt in the more peaceful surroundings of Swanage without the clock!

We revisited Swanage a few weekends ago. These pictures are such a contrast to those summer days! I still however find beauty and interest in each season down by the sea.
Our son on a rare visit home - boys will be boys!
There were even some swimmers enjoying the bracing sea - Brr. I think I should have stuck with the summer images, I'm feeling cold again now!
We have had a busy weekend trying to get ahead getting things organised for Christmas and I also made our Christmas pudding using my mother in laws recipe. Have you started thinking about Christmas yet?
