Jurassic Park? No just a coast.

The weather is still fabulous here ( but nor for long now I'm told). With such a nice hot day promised where to go but to the coast!

Didn't fancy braving the crowds at the main south coast resorts so we went to a part of the coast between Lyme Regis and Bridport - Eype to be exact. Eype means "steep place" and it certainly lives up to its name. I was puffing before we reached the top of the first climb which might have been the high temperatures or just a plain lack of exercise over the last week or so - I'm blaming the heat. Eype is a great place for fossil hunting but this time we avoided the beach and headed up on to the downs.

We found a tumulus or two on  top of the bluff but other than that it was a day of sitting in the sun at the pub in Seatown, having a gentle stroll around the downs ( I swear much more up than down) and finishing off with a cream tea!

 View down to Seatown and lunch!

So not much to write about this week - just some photos of the spectacular scenery to share.
