Dorset day 1

Lovely, sunny day, a car, a road (or two)... wonderful. We set out to drive to Weymouth today, and stopped at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door on the way. Actually, even before that, we stopped at New forest for a little walk, and saw some New Forest ponies!

To enter Lulworth Cove, first you have to get past the bucket and spade tree.

And here it is: Lulworth Cove.

...seen from a hilltop.

...from here, in fact: (see the two people on top for scale?)

Those people up there are actually looking at this scene (Lulworth Cove was right behind them):

A random photographer.

Then we climbed up this path...

(From that path, looking back at Lulworth Cove.)

(Zebedee running up that hill on the right, for about the third time while us two were slowly walking up the hill...) get to Durdle Door.

These are the steps that you have to walk down to get to the beach.

Zebedee liked the beach a lot.

Looking back on the way back to the car.

WOW! That place is amazing. Like something out of a dream. It's so nice that you have the time and ability to see stuff like this.
