These are just some of my favourite photos from my holiday. The first one is in the beautiful garden at Pecorama in Beer. Although Pecorama is for Railway enthusiasts, which applies to my grandsons, there are some beautiful gardens there and I think it is worth going just to see them. Also the entrance fee includes a very long ride on a model railway.
These are typical thatched cottages that are everywhere in Devon and Dorset and these particular ones are overlooking Sidmouth Beach.
This picture was taken from the beach at Beer. The fishermen had to use an electric winch to pull their boats high on the shingle beach after their fishing trips. Many of them take out people who want to catch mackerel.
I love taking photos through archways and there are plenty of these in the Sidmouth Cliff Gardens. However this one was taken in the Pecorama Gardens.
Lyme Regis is a quaint town with old world cottages and beautiful views of the Charmouth cliffs. There are many fossils on Charmouth Beach in the rocks and stones. In Lyme Regis there are shops that specialise in Fossils and semi precious stones and there is also a small museum where many interesting local finds can be seen. This is a photo taken from the gardens overlooking Lyme Bay towards Charmouth where the beach is only accessible at low tide. The sun always seems to strike that sloping field seen here near to the tree. Depending on the weather, the field can be seen in bright yellows or greens but sometimes is shrouded by mist and can hardly be seen at all.
This is a view from the Sidmouth Gardens overlooking the sea. I love these gardens and I love Sidmouth. In fact I love the whole area and I was so grateful to my daughter for taking me to these much loved places again.
I will do a post showing lovely floral displays soon.
