On Saturday SD and I finally finished the hedge at the farm:
It's a huge job and takes at least three sessions to finish. It's great working out in the garden but I am SO glad it's finished!
After a shower to wash the smell of bonfire out of my hair we headed out to the pub. Rather than go to one of the ones more local to me we went to one that SD used to drink in a lot when he was younger.
Set in the Somerset countryside it's peaceful with a beautiful garden. There was live music playing, the beer was chilled and the sunset was stunning!
After a very lazy start on Sunday and a full English breakfast we set off for the beach.
I haven't been to Hive, a lesser known beach near Burton Bradstock in Dorset since last year. It's a little further along the coast than our usual haunts of Lyme Regis and West Bay but so worth the extra effort to get there.
On the way we stopped for coffee at a farm shop high on the hills overlooking one of my other favourite beaches Seatown. Seatown is very secluded and, as it's down a very long winding lane it tends to be off the radar for many sunseekers.
We sat outside in the baking sun and I took this photo. Due to the heat haze it's not the best photo of Seatown (way down in the valley).
Hive was the busiest I've ever seen it and only with SD could you set out for the beach and find an improptu car show going on in the field used as a car park:
So we spent a little time chatting to the Morgan owners club - LOVE that one in the first picture - the newest one there but I think they have got it spot on!
And then to the beach to lie in the sun, read my book and soak up the rays:
Again, maybe not the best photo but I was lying down at the time and actually couldn't see a thing as the sun was shining on my phone and most of the photos included my knees:
|Like this one!|
I did get a photo of this cute couple though:
So far I'm having a very happy, lazy Summer, I hope you are too!
