Frosty

 The one day when I wasn't working last week we awoke to a frosty landscape and I couldn't wait for breakfast to be out to capture its beauty!






Although it doesn't look like it in these pictures West Bay has been very busy for the last few weekends, since the second series of Broadchurch started.




I also noticed that there are many cameras taking images of  familiar locations. The blue chalet Britbank below where David Tennant was living has been put on the market for £275,000. It made me smile when I saw an advert, wondering whether David Tennant was also included in the price!



Lyme Regis is another of our favourite locations and on our visit there yesterday we discovered the new sea defence wall that opened last August. It is on the opposite end of the town to the Cobb but still has wonderful views over the sea.



Back in the town more lovely locations to admire........


          and then I noticed this driftwood wreath! That's another thing I would like to make!


I haven't mentioned the two woollen hats that I have recently knitted. The first one (for me) was fine and I was so impressed I offered to make my son one. Unfortunately it turned out so large that I need to unpick it and start again! The frosty morning has reminded me that this must be my priority this week!

Wishing you a fun week.

The sea defence it is!! Will check it out in the spring!! Oh! What a beautiful morning🎵🎶🎵 it was to be out taking lovely frosty photos!! They are stunning. Keep warm - with or without knitted hats!!!

  3. Such gorgeous softly-tinted frosty seacapes! I agree that the driftwood wreath is definitely something to try. Looks like you had a beautiful day to be out and about :)

  4. Those photos of the frosty land, sea and sky are fabulous! Isn't the Cobb where the French Lieutenant's Woman was set?

  5. Those top three photos really are glorious Sarah. It does look cold, but the sun reflecting off the sea is fabulous. What a great early morning walk.

  6. Oh my what wonderful wintery pictures - it certainly has been a good old frosty winter that's for sure - and I hear we are due snow by the end of the week - well, most of us anyway. Have a good week Sarah.

  7. It amazes that even in winter English gardens are so beautiful. We just do not have that kind of frost here in Maryland. It's either snow or ice, or just wet.

  8. What beautiful photos, and the wreath is wonderful, a fantastic idea, really nicely done. I love the house with the pale blue shutters as well, it's quite striking. CJ xx

  12. Your frosty day photos by the sea are beautiful, Sarah. Have you and Tavi finished your lessons yet? We never took any of our dogs in for lessons, but we should have. I still have little pieces of driftwood from our years living by the ocean but I never thought of using it in a wreath...a clever idea. Rather than pick your son's hat apart maybe you could give the hat to someone who has a bigger head than your son and then make a new hat for your son. Hoping you and yours have a healthy happy week! xx

    1. Hi Gracie, The dog lessons are once a week for at least 6 weeks. My hat is so big I'm not sure it would fit anyone's head! Sarah x

  13. Nice to "walk" with you along the shore. I can feel it since I live here on the shore of Lake Michigan. There is that something special living by water. We are fortunate indeed to have it such an intimate part of our lives. Enjoyed my visit to your blog today. Jack

  14. Beautiful photos ... I love to stop by & visit here. Many ages ago
    I lived in England for a short while. Your images always make me
    nostalgic for that time long gone. You have good camera eyes!

    best to you,

  15. Hello Sarah,

    Lyme Regis is an absolute favourite haunt of ours. In every season it has a dramatic beauty which makes it a very special place. It has needed new sea defences for a considerable time so this is good news indeed since that part of the coastline is eroding at an alarming rate.

    And, as you say and illustrate so beautifully here, the narrow streets hold so much of interest and intrigue. Just wandering is a pure delight.

    As we have no television we had no idea about 'Broadchurch' but, we are sure that house prices will never be the same again!

  16. Glorious photos and that driftwood wreath is very pretty. I love Lyme and didn't know it had a new wall- will have to pop down this summer. We're enjoying Broadchurch xx

    ReplyDelete
  17. Your surroundings are just as beautiful in winter as in summer, how nice it would be to walk on a crisp cold morning. How's Tavi enjoying the snow and frost?

  18. How lovely is this world of blogging that I unfortunately had to leave....for NOW. But the beauty is that I can come to visit you all, and enjoy the world through your eyes. Sarah, the frost is gorgeous by the sea. That white house with the light blue shutters is BEAUTIFUL, and the early morning draped in frost is exciting, a new and crisp day.

    So good to see you, and that driftwood wreath is an inspiration! Anita

  19. Dear Sarah,
    Breathtaking photos! You know I am thinking what a beautiful calendar these photos would make. You are a wonderful photographer... Thank you so much for sharing.
    blessings,

  20. Your photos so captivate me. Oh how I love the sea. I have never seen the coast covered in frost or snow in person because our coast is too warm, though the water is so cold. It's truly beautiful to see in photos. I do not know what Broadchurch is? I am guessing a BBC series. All the houses you capture are swoon worthy. Lovely life of yours down by the sea. xxo

    1. Hi Kerrie, Broadchurch is a crime thriller based in West Bay. It was remade for the American market and was called Gracepoint and was based in California. It wasn't as popular as it is here. I have heard that Broadchurch has been broadcast in it's original format in Canada and New Zealand. Sarah x

  21. Oh what lovely photos Sarah, they are stunning. I love living by the water too, there's always that pull towards it when choosing a walk. P x

  22. Never been awoken to a similar view Sarah, really striking! Frost can magically transform the landscape.How many beauties along the shore and the wreath looks ideal for a maritime house.
    Have a happy week!

  30. Sarah, you have a natural eye for a good photo - the first in this post is stunning. A view like that would have had me rushing out the door as well. This chilly weather does have its perks, doesn't it! Caro x

  31. Frost brings another sort of beauty to the landscape doesn't it? The driftwood wreath reminds me of a holiday we had a couple of years ago in Appledore, N.Devon. There was an arts festival on and there was a competition for the best door decoration to made out of natural materials. There were some really original creations with driftwood, pieces of rope, shells, etc. It gave me lots of inspiration for decorating my garden gates.

  32. So lovely to see frost and sea in the same photo - magical. I'm sort of hoping for a bit of snow later in the week - just sort of!

  34. These are beautiful pictures Sarah, thanks so much for sharing! I love early mornings in the winter before the frost melts, it makes a mesmerizing landscape :). Hope you are well!

  35. Your frost photos are stunning Sarah! And I agree, I would love to make a wreath like that. Good luck with the unpicking. Jane x

  36. I enjoyed seeing your frosty early morning world, Sarah! The North American version of Broadchurch, called Gracepoint, was filmed where my oldest son and his family live in a part of Victoria called Oak Bay. One of the homes used in that show was put up for sale after the filming and they have asked a big price for it. It's still on the market almost a year later.

    Good luck with the knitting! Have you joined Ravelry?

  37. Wow! Your little place by the sea is just as gorgeous with a covering of frost.

  41. Oh Sarah, I am so happy that you own a camera. Your photography is wonderful . . . when I visit and go along with you on one for your photo adventures I just literally fall head over feet into the mood of the journey. You amaze me with your awesomely beautiful photos. Visiting your blog is like taking a mini vacation.

  42. Gorgeous images Sarah. It's years since I was last in Lyme but I always liked the place best in winter.

  43. I've read your last posts, what a great pictures you've made of the seaside: i love it!

  44. Wonderful pictures - especially the frosty light and the driftwood wreath - and that tall building that looks like a mill.
    I am still watching Broadchurch, although the second series isn't quite as "together" as the first was. Amazing to see the actual blue hut!
    I haven't been to Lyme Regis for a couple of years but must go again and see that new sea defence. A good idea as long as it doesn't ruin the views of the fossil cliffs...
    All the best :)
