Seagull at Swanage

Dancing seagull at Swanage

There are always a lot of seagulls at Swanage. They seem to congregate on the rocks near the cafes. Waiting for some leftovers when diners have left the outside tables perhaps.

I like seagulls. They seem to have so much personality as they strut around the beach as if they own it. Perhaps they do!

Dorset in the fog

Misty Dorset coast

I was lucky enough to be able to have a few days holiday by the coast. The end of March wasn’t the best of weather, but Dorset is beautiful at any time of the year.

I wanted to go back to Durdle Door. I planned to sit on the beach with my book and my picnic and try and take some lovely photos of Durdle Door.

I parked in the car park, opened the door, and nearly got blown away by the strong wind! I walked to the edge of the cliff to find Durdle Door shrouded in thick fog!

So I read my book and ate my picnic in the warmth of the car and still enjoyed the views that I could see. As I left the car park to move on to somewhere less foggy, I saw these two lovely trees peeping through the mist.

Beach huts at Hamworthy

Three beach huts at Hamworthy

I love walking along the beach looking out for shells and listening to the swishing of the waves.
I love beach huts too. These are at Hamworthy, Poole in Dorset.

Grape Hyacinth

Grape Hyacinth

Another lovely Spring flower. I don’t know what it is about Grape Hyacinths, but for me there’s something special about them. I love their shape and colour and the way they’re made up of tiny little flowers. I suppose that’s where their name comes from, as they do look a bit like a bunch of grapes.
