Following my last post I had a recommendation from Brenda to read Remarkable Creatures by Tracey Chevalier (she is well known for her book Girl with a Pearl Earring) Remarkable creatures is a novel based on the life of Mary Anning a young girl who was born in 1779 and discovered many fossils - some of which were the most significant geological finds of all time. I only picked up the book from the library yesterday, and have already been engrossed in reading it. Has anyone else read it? I was obviously aware of Mary Anning and have been meaning to find out more about her for ages, my historical reading has been concentrating on Bridport and West Bay.
As we wandered by the famous Cobb it was easy to see how important it has been for the town. The sea inside the harbour was calm. We enjoyed watching some birds flying into the fishing pots then feeding on something. For a second they all looked like caged birds, until they flew out of the holes designed to catch a much bigger bite!
A series of metal moorings reminded us of giant plugs and a welcome coffee in one of the pubs beside the beach came with a jar of dog biscuits! Tavi was impressed!
There is so many different things to see in Lyme Regis and the gardens overlooking the Cobb and sea are also a wonderful place to wander and look good all year around.
As we headed back to the car with the sun and the tide out we once again appreciated how amazing this coastline can be.
This week also marks 5 years since I first started this blog. I can't believe that it has been going for so long! It has been a special part of my life and made me appreciate what is important. Thank you so much for visiting and following me. I have made so many lovely friends and through them learnt so much more about the world we all share. I also want to thank those who don't have blogs but pop by on a regular basis I do appreciate your visits so much too.
