We were blessed with brilliant bright blue skies today.
Knowing where I would be having lunch I just had a clementine and a small apple before we set off for a walk in to Lyme Regis. The cliffs have slipped in the storm. Last week this was a road we could have driven along but a long section has dropped down at least a foot. It is now closed to cars which must be inconvenient for the house that is situated at the end of the lane! A little way further and this part has slipped even more. This was level. Look at this beautiful view and blue skies. It was fantastic to be outside in the sunshine. Walking in the sunshine is always enjoyable at this time of year but more so after the recent storms. It was just over a mile to walk down to the Cobb. All the debris was still there. Hard to believe the waves hurled this concrete post about. All these pebbles were hurled from the beach on the other side of the wall. All these pebbles were thrown over the wall. There’s a couple of likely lads. They have played football all the way from the house, down to the beach and now along the beach. The rest of us couldn’t stop looking at all the trees and other debris washed up by the storms. We walked along the beach to the other end of the town.I wonder where all these trees came from?
They were washed up all along the beach.
It was beautiful walking along and being outside today and I loved it all. After our walk and with it being early afternoon, it was time to eat.
Destination, the Town Mill Bakery. One of my favourite places to eat in the world. Not the healthiest unfortunately but for superb baked products, in a convivial atmosphere you can not find better.
Food is constantly changed over so it is always fresh and you choose from what is laid out here. It’s a bot rough and ready with no frills or fancy service. You come here for the food and the fun of eating together. Most of us chose soup. I had leek and potato and Harvey had the tomato. It was served in a bread bowl and it was all delicious. Harvey and I shared a chocolate brownie and this carrot cake. Naughty but, oh so nice. Not a morsel left on any of our plates is a common sight here.
We walked back up the High Street and up the long hill to get home. That gave me a chance to look at the lovely houses in detail, that I usually drive past. This is the door to the “mushroom house”. This is the mushroom house. My walking boots are rather old and showing it. They are cracked and probably need replacing now. They have taken me for many miles and to many beautiful places. Few lovelier than Lyme Regis which has now added sand to them.My lovely weekend ended with a roast chicken dinner. My Uncle and Aunty joined us and it was hard to leave. Thank you Lucy and Trevor for such a wonderful weekend.
I will miss you, little fella. Have fun with your cousins.

i always think that walking is my best way to lose weight
