After a few hiccups on the buying side we finally exchanged contracts this week and and are heading 20 miles west, still by the sea in Dorset, to West Bay.

As I have occasionally taken you there on this blog it won't be unfamiliar. This beautiful video made by Watershed PR is only 2 minutes long taking us one summer day, from sunrise to sunset. It will give you some idea of the beautiful surrounding area.
West Bay is a pretty harbour village a few miles south of the town of Bridport. The honeycombe cliffs and beaches provide a spectacular backdrop to the sea. The harbour dates back to 13th century and it became a major ship building centre during the 18th and 19th centuries. Today the industry has long gone and fishing and tourists are the main activities.
Over the last couple of years the number of visitors have increased as this is also the location for the popular TV drama series Broadchurch. Has this television programme been shown aboard too?
My dream has always been to live closer to the sea and in a weeks time we will be moving to a home with a distant sea view, it feels hard to believe! If only Daisy could have been there with us too.

Over the last few years we have started to declutter our home and we thought we had done quite well until we started packing! The boxes seem to be piling up at an enormous rate. I must return to the packing. Bye for now.
