We’re Back and Burton Bradstock

Well, we’re back again from a week’s holiday in Devon, our last one for this year.  We had a lovely week, that’s not to say the sun shone every day but living in England we know not to expect that.  Having said that we did see plenty of sunshine and didn’t ever get wet, almost blown away a couple of times but that’s OK.

On the Monday it was my birthday and I was given the deciding vote on where we would go that day.  I chose Burton Bradstock.  It’s a beautiful little place.  Not a lot there, there’s a great beach, fantastic scenery and what’s more there’s a wonderful beach cafe.  That’s where we headed first.  We love to sit outside a cafe with a Kaffee und Kuchen and this cafe is just about top of our list for doing just that.  Look at the view!

  I took some photos of Caroline, Tee and Charlie. 

On Friday William and I went back to Burton Bradstock again.  It was perfect weather to be there.  The wind was blowing quite fiercely at times and the waves were ginormous.  It was glorious.  We decided to walk up and along the coastal path in the opposite direction of Monday’s walk.  Here I am at the start of the walk.

DSC_6124_edited-1William’s not too keen on heights and the edge of the cliffs was really not that far from the path.  When we saw this sign I thought oh no, that’s the end of this walk!  I was sure he wouldn’t go any further but he did.  Well done, William!

Muffin is a funny little dog.  He gets fed up of going for walks, especially when we’re on holiday.  In the picture above he was refusing to move.  He wanted to go back to the car.  Seems too much of a good thing is a bad thing in Muffin’s books.  We literally had to make him carry on by tugging at the lead.  It’s a shame for him isn’t it?

Yeah, Burton Bradstock is definitely one of my favourite places.  I’m so glad Caroline and Trev discovered it for us all.

More holiday pics tomorrow.

TTFN.

That poor dog, you need to invest in a sling of some sort so that you can carry him. He only has ickle, tiny legs.
Pic of the Williams' is lovely.
