There has been lots going on around here lately so apologies for abundance of images, capturing some special moments....
|Spider crab and fishing boat in West Bay|
The fields have been ablaze with the colour of wild flowers. Following other bloggers we decided to discover which wild flowers were growing in this meadow and were surprised at how many different varieties we found.
The weather has been mixed but when the sun does break through it can be spectacular looking out to sea.
On the 75th Anniversary of the Raid of Dieppe a memorial plaque and noticeboard were dedicated to remember those who never returned and their story will now never be forgotten here.
Our annual agriculture show was held and we enjoyed looking at the animals and admiring all the displays. It was a long sunny and tiring day!
A chance encounter with a tourist lead us to Burton Bradstock beach to share in the celebrations of 26th birthday of Hive Beach Cafe. It was a gorgeous evening and a good way to watch the sun go down. There was even a passing visit from one of the gig boats that operates out of West Bay. (Historically Pilot Gigs would race out to win the business from visiting tall ships and pilot them into harbour; they were also used as lifeboats with hardy gig crews often being the only assistance available to stricken shipping.)
Another view of Bristol harbour including it's newest addition this tree house built in one of the Cranes (above and below) which has been available to rent over the summer. The interior is stunning do look inside.
Lastly it was Bridport Hat Festival this weekend, it's a wonderful unique event celebrating hats. Most people come into town wearing hats and there is lots of themed things to do around hats including keep fit wearing hats and a Jungle Hat disco!. It is always a fun day and there are some amazing creations. I was busy selling raffle tickets so didn't manage to capture too many of the wonderful hats.
Have a great week, thank as always for stopping by.
