Summer on the Beach …

… that’s the theme of our whole summer of 2018, although to be fair, that’s an ongoing theme in our family life since we live close by to the beach. You’ll find us there whether it’s summer, autumn, winter or spring.  This is a part two of what we’ve been up to in the warm months, you can click here if you want to check out part one.

We did think of going abroad, but with the “heat wave” a close friend said “Why go abroad when it’s as good as anywhere here when the weather is as warm as this?”.  And that’s exactly what we did!  We didn’t even go very far.  Just over the border, into Devon…

Lyme Regis

Charmouth Beach

We’ve been to Charmouth before, but I’ve never seen this much fossil hunters on the beach!

, Our friend was right, when the weather is great, spending summers here in England is as good as going abroad.

What about you?

Did you go abroad this summer?

    This summer was unusually warm for the UK, we enjoyed the English beaches too. We would like to visit Cornwall definitely, I love the view and the coloured little houses on the beache!

    • It was certainly lovely weather wasn’t it? Love the beach huts too, every time I see them I just have to take a photo!

  2. We have been to Charmouth beach two years ago, fossil hunting!!
    It was in May/June so a bit chilly for a swim but we really loved it.

    • Love fossil hunting too. We didn’t do much of it though last time we visited. But we did about a few years ago 🙂

    Wow that is a lot of fossil hunters, Alice would love this she is fascinated by fossils x

    • We’ve been to Charmouth before but I’ve never seen this much fossil hunters! Alice will certainly enjoy fossil hunting here 🙂

  4. I love both Lyme and Charmouth beaches – fossil hunting is so much fun – have you been to West Bay?

    Ooh what gorgeous beaches! There was definitely no need to go abroad this summer. We went to Cornwall and loved it! Fossil hunting sounds lots of fun.
