Dorset 2011 – A Few Things That Caught My Eye

Dorset really is lovely. As well as the countryside, here are a few other things that I enjoyed looking at.
A little stained glass window…
…some mulberries (which were delicious)…
…an adolescent seagull…
…a tandem mountain bike (one for Abigail & Paul?)…
…and an elderly Paddington.
With all the fish ‘n’ chips that are eaten, I bet these lorries run day and night (I recommend ‘Herbie’s Dino Bar‘, on the seafront in Lyme. Fish sourced from Lyme Bay and cooked to order).
Now is this a CAD monkey? Or a gentleman who’s well, a bit of a rake (but would you advertise?).
A fisherman at rest.

Escape to the Country

On Friday we made it out into the countryside a did a bit of wine touring.

Tuscan roads are very narrow and twisty. We all managed to get car sick except for A. who has driving. As Iona’s usual form of transport is narrow boat, she’s only used to proceeding in a straight line at 4 miles an hour (although driving on the right isn’t a problem).
Here are Iona and A. waiting for Fr. Rattue and I to stop taking photos. Did I mention that we were tootling around in a blue JAG? OK it was a baby one and diesel but better than the Fiat we’d hired 8-). I love Jags….
