Christmas on the Coast

As we did last year, we spent Christmas week on the Dorset coast, between Weymouth and Portland. Dorset is also known as the Jurassic Coast and is a world heritage site, well known for being one of the richest heritage sites for prehistoric remains. We didn’t do any dinosaur bone hunting while we were away, but we did enjoy getting out of the urban sprawl of the West Midlands and into the less crowded and cleaner air of the south-east.

Here’s a few photos;

The Cove Inn in Portland. Excellent food. This pub has survived numerous floods from being directly on Chesil Beach.

  1. Hi Lynne. You will see surfers, wind surfers and kayakers on the water year round. I'm assuming they wear those insulated wet suits most of the time. Its the Atlantic, which isn't warm even in the Summer.
