We had a choice of Abbotsbury or one or two of the coastal towns. We went to Beer!! (Sounds a bit like going "to seed" but better - ;) ) Arrived in the pay-and-display car park and Pete nobly leapt out of the car volunteering to feed the machine with coins - but hey ho! very conveniently found he'd left his loose change back at the ranch... a likely tale!!
Went down the steep slope to the beach.. and the first delight of the day was a group of very busy House Sparrows - who posed very nicely.
A quick peak in the local church..
And then on to Forde Abbey and gardens... another new venue for me. It was lunch time when we got there so today's lunch was Red Pepper and Tomato soup with some chunky bread and a cuppa. Then out into the gardens - which are extensive.
Another lovely day out even though we didn't have the great sunshine of yesterday - but at least it was dry. And tonight we ate at the pub over the road as the young couple who run the hotel give themselves a night away from the kitchen. The Yarcombe Inn is a community run pub and provides excellent food.... lovely!!
