Portland Bill

We awoke on Sunday  to blue skies which encouraged us to get out of bed early and we were out walking at Portland Bill almost on our own. The sound of sky larks ( click here to hear the sound)  greeted us as we got out of the car and the air felt so fresh. For once I will just leave you with the pictures!








Thank you for sharing with me your favourite spring flowers and poems in the last post. I have enjoyed discovering some new poems that you have mentioned.

  3. I love Portland Bill - I've only been once when I was perhaps 6 or 7, but I used to love the Portland Bill stories and would love to revisit. There's a photo of my sister and me sat by the lighthouse eating ice creams in our living room!

  11. Picture and sound perfect, Sarah! Thanks so much for posting. In two weeks my sisters and I are planning to rent a house on the coast just south of San Francisco. We are getting so excited since we all love being near the sea! xx

  14. I have to say that I think you live in one of the most picturesque spots in the world. I love the lighthouse, the rocky beach and the colorful shacks.

  15. Did you go up the light house? I did go up approx. 20 years ago, got to the top with jelly legs so not sure if I'd make it now. It is a must visit for 2014 though - along with Abbotsbury. Beautiful pictures as always. Doesn't England look wonderful in the sunshine.

  18. I know exactly where to turn these days to get my dose of fresh air and spring: YOU. Thank you for always taking us to our mother sea, my friend.

  19. I love the sound of the sky larks and it's wonderful to see them up high against a blue sky. Lovely photos of the coast.

  20. I bet the postman loves that collection.. when the sun is shining anyway!

  21. We do not have Skylark's here so this was especially nice to hear what you were listening to as you walked along the shore. My Gabriel would have loved to join Daisy on her walk! He's out in our fenced yard right now as I take a break from picking up sticks and raking leaves. My daffodils have come up a few more inches now that Monday's snow has melted. I forgot to mention my favorite Spring flower in your last post. For me it's the Primroses the grocery stores sell here in February because they tide me over until the crocus and daffodils appear in March. Once they quit blooming indoors, I plant them outside.

    It will probably be very different today with the wind blowing in again and rain expected.

  30. Despite familiarity with the place, my heart beats with a thump when I see photographs like these. If it weren't that evening's drawing in and the wind is getting up and it looks as if it might rain - I might go dashing over to get another fix.

  35. Gosh, what a lovely blog you've made. I think adding the sound of a sky lark was to a post is such a lovely idea, and your photos are just amazing. I only have a camera on my old Nokia mobile and haven't a clue how to use a proper camera, so I just love to drink in images like yours. I'm looking forward to dipping into your older posts too, Antonia x

  36. What beautiful photos! I clicked over thinking you were in Portland, Maine. Silly me! We are in DC and also have a place in Maine. And we just came home from visiting Emsworth, Portsmouth and Bosham. Cheers, Loi
