I always like walking with a purpose (not just ‘for exercise’) and today I had a reason to go to the Common. I did feel that I was maybe a bit late to the party but a few days ago, after reading Nana Cathy’s post I looked for blackberries. In lots of places the bushes… Read More A Fruitful Walk!
For those of you who follow Wild Daffodil’s blog as well as mine this will be something of a reprise, though as seen by a visitor who forgot to put the SD card in her camera! – I blame the uncertain weather, so many other things to think about, like what to wear and what… Read More A Day in Dorset
Those of you who have been following me for a while might remember my ‘Adventure’ posts. However, when you have an outing sometimes “You just want to wander!” and so this is a record of some of that wandering. The weather has been so hot lately that it has actually put me off going very… Read More Sometimes you just want to wander!
I met up with my eldest and family and had a couple of meals and had fun in an Escape Room. Although this is not my photograph and therefore I do not own the copyright I am sure the Escape Plan guy won’t mind as this can be considered an advert.

Last Autumn I spent a day in Chichester. At the time I had so much photography to share, with my garden and the Photo Challenge, that I didn’t find a space to share my outing, though I have shared a few of the photographs in other contexts.

My last full day in Dorset. I had decided that after my day of walking to Hardy’s Cottage and back it would be wise to plan a less energetic day in case I was feeling tired. I decided that I would go to the coast and had been trying to choose between Bridport and Lyme Regis… Read More A Dorset Adventure in Five parts – Day five
Stinsford church, Thorncombe Woods and Hardy’s Cottage. Having had a bad migraine the evening before (maybe I was overdoing it after all!) I was pleased to find my head feeling much better as I set off. I had a leaflet that I had printed off the internet and I followed their walk to Hardy’s Cottage… Read More A Dorset Adventure in Five parts – Day four
Cerne Abbas Tuesday was cloudy and not as hot as Monday but when you are going walking that is no bad thing. I had been to Cerne Abbas Giant viewpoint on the way back from Weymouth last summer and shared a couple of pictures. The rather hard to see Giant. However this time I was aiming to… Read More A Dorset Adventure in Five parts – Day three
Last summer when I went to Weymouth with my granddaughter, Sandra of Wild Daffodil and I had arranged to meet, however circumstance intervened, but now I was coming back to Dorset we had another try and this time succeeded. Sandra very kindly offered to pick me up in her car and take me to somewhere… Read More A Dorset Adventure in Five parts – Day two
Having had such a good time exploring Dorset from Weymouth with my granddaughter last summer, I felt there was more to see and so decided to spend a few days in Dorchester which would enable me more easily to visit places I had missed before. So on Sunday 21st May I set off to catch… Read More A Dorset Adventure in Five parts – Day one
