West Bay has quickly become one of our must-go places. I don't know what it is about this place but we all love it.
There are a good quality shops to browse, a mix of restaurants and takeaway huts to choose from and of course several coffee shops. Ellipse on the sea front is our favourite.
On this midweek visit William and I decided on cheese and onion pasties for lunch from the hut above and then sat and ate them looking...
...at the boats in the harbour.
And enjoyed with the sound of seagulls on the air. Not the sweetest of sounds I don't suppose but music to my ears all the same. I know I'm on holiday when I hear their squawking.
That's William up there setting off up the coastal path from West Bay to Eype.
Spectacular views along the way.
The coastline is very dramatic with cliffs to peer over every step of the way. Steep, high and very crumbly cliffs. In February of this year a couple walking from Eype to Burton Bradstock had a very lucky escape when cliffs collapsed onto the beach just a few feet from where they were standing. Follow this link for the newspaper report.

Now looking back to West Bay.
And finally a view I'll never tire of. Our littlest grandson, Charlie, playing outside the caravan. He's a little sweetie!
Still more to come.
