Drawn to the water

The reward for climbing the steep chalk cliffs surrounding Lulworth Cove is this breathtaking view ....


With the sun shining and the sky and sea so blue it is a beautiful scene that takes some beating!



Some of the gorse bushes are in flower, but we have noticed that much of the habitat close to the shore along the South West coast has suffered more salt-burn this year from the winter storms.
Shall we take a walk along the beach?




 The shingle is not the easiest surface to walk on, but it makes you notice the lovely contrast in the colour of the pebbles.


 And just sitting on the beach taking in the scenery is always a good way to recharge the batteries of life!


 Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the moments that take our breath away.

  6. Oh SO beautiful! You must be so peaceful living by the sea. I always feel restored when I get some sea air- I like it best, walking along alone for hours! If it's a little bit blustery and chilly, that's also nice as well as hot!x

  19. There's nowhere quite like it - almost like a cove on a desert island I always think. I studied it for Geography 'A' level too!

  24. Good morning special friend! Thank you so much Sarah, for coming to visit my post. I am getting better little by little, but to be dizzy for over a month has its challenges! How a nice walk along the shore would help me! XOXOXO

  25. The chalk cliffs are beautiful! I had never heard of salt-burn before, but of course the sea water would damage the plants it comes in contact with. It's funny how sometimes the most obvious things can escape me! You can tell I haven't lived near the sea. :-)

  26. That really is the most perfect little beach. I'd love to visit one day. Happy weekend. Juliex

  27. Totally stunning - looks like the Mediterranean ! Walking on shingle is quite a work out for the legs !

  30. We spent a wonderful week based in Lulworth Cove four years ago and as luck would have it the weather was perfect and we had the most amazing time. I fell in love with the place instanly the moment I saw it and even better I discovered some of my ancestors are from Dorset though how on earth they could leave such a beautiful place I dont know!

  31. I have not been to Lukworth for 30 years but your blog brought it back to me!

  32. Beautiful - especially in Spring when the crowds aren't there. We foolishly went in mid August on a scorching hot day, huge crowds, no sunglasses against the chalky glare, no sunhats, and were defeated by the climb after just one or two steps!
    So it's lovely to see what we missed!
    All the best :)
