Charlmouth beach

Aside

These should be in the set below and I missed them. You had to see the magnificent cliff which I think may be Golden Cap

Nice photos.

Thanks for all the photos.

From the looks of the villages, parking is not a priority.

As for the beach, the weather looks great! I trust you donned bathing suits and went for a swim!

Cheers.

Just had a lovely time catching up with your photos and holiday news. You always find such interesting places.

Hope the bikini still fits! x

That looks like West bay to me not Charmouth. Golden Cap is not in any of those photos. It's further on in the first one but you can't see it...

Oh Pat...these pictures are devine---Especially when you make them really big! I LOVE the one of the young couple sitting on the Beach in a very intimate moment---they're two children, I assume, playing a little bit away from them....This certainly is a charming and BEAUTIFUL area, my dear.
On my two trips back in the '90s I only got to London and The Cotswolds and Shakespeare Country....! There is so much beauty and History throughout the UK....Thanks for sharing so much of it with all of us "Across The Pond"....

And yes my dear...77! Remember? We are the same age for a few months and then, you move on to the next number...!

andrewm: thanks hon.

Randall: we didn't have any parking problems which was great. Apparently there is a dearth of the usual young families as they are all being stretched paying off mortgages.
One piece swim suit for me and it would have to be Greece to tempt me.

Anon: I'm sure you are right about Golden Cap but West Bay was a different day to Charmouth and I think i did them in sequence.

Naomi: my mistake. I was born a year later than you - sadly:)
The photographs are helped enormously by the weather. I love the sparkle on the water.

PI said...

Sandy: looks like I have somehow confused two places but Blogger and Picasa between them have a habit of jumbling them. And it's Charmouth - not Charlouth.

John.g: it fits - it just doesn't get worn.

I'm completely in love with that grassy cliff rising up from the beach, and the little olive green house that seems to be built into it. What I wouldn't give to live in that house!

The sky is virtually cloudless. Lucky you! It looks like the ideal relaxing trip.

John said...

I love that beach as well. My wife and I have spent many happy days there. Those pictures bring back many happy memories. I hope you don't mind if I copy them and print them off?

PI said...

Eryl: now you've made us all go back and look at it.

Sam: we were blessed and loved it.

John: my pleasure as long as you realise I am not totally accurate all of the time.

Jack said...

Great pictures, Pat. Yes, the weather helps a whole lot. Just so I'm clear: Charlmouth Beach is part of Dorset?

PI said...

Jack : I suspect you're teasing me. All the photos are Dorset and yes I misspelt Charmouth. Sorry all.

John said...

I thought it was was Charmouth, but I didn't like to correct you; it's not polite to show a lady up.

PI said...

John: ooh good! another gentleman.

Kath said...

What a beautiful day! Would have loved to have been there

Dr Maroon said...

You've been busy Pat. I didn't realise you were back. You do take a good photo. Are you still part time with the Dorset tourist board?
Liked the reference to "forty shillings" on the gate. My granny often talked about pre decimal coinage. Groats. Florins. Half Crowns. Thrupenny bits. Of course I'm lying. I bet I can work out 20 years compound interest of 2 1/2%on eight pounds seventeen and six, convert it to guineas and decimalise it quicker than anyone.

PI said...

Kath: it's worth adding it to your list of places to visit the next time you're over here.

Doccie: your brain power never ceases to amaze me. Frightening really:)

Jack said...

No, I'm not teasing. The weather makes a tremendous difference in photography.

PI said...

Jack: misunderstanding. I thought you had spotted my spelling mistake : Charlmouth which should be Charmouth.
