Last Sunday I met a couple of friends for a bluebell extravaganza of a walk!
The path took us through deep dark woods
Joining Cee’s Which Way Challenge
and lighter glades where the light was stunningly, beautifully, softly, frothily romantic
I took so many photographs, it has taken me all week to choose which ones to share( they certainly won’t all fit in one post).
We stopped at Down House Farm
and sat out in the garden
for a delicious lunch of Bubble and Squeak, eggs and bacon, all local produce and drank apple and ginger fruit punch
after that we headed out to the cliffs and wide open views towards Portland
Oh what a joyful day, the sun shone, the air was sweet, the sky was blue, our batteries were well and truly recharged …..

My friend P and I went for a wonderful walk in West Dorset on Wednesday.
We drove through pouring rain to get to this magical land of pixies, fairies and dragons.
The sun came out to greet us
and light up portals into other worlds
…… and the incantations of fellow questers.
We were heading for yonder knoll ( Colmer’s Hill)
to commune with the seven pines,
enjoy the view
to the sea and the Isle of Portlandand marvel at the sky.
Then down into the village of Symondsbury, nestling at its feet
past ancient farmhouses, (joining in with Norm’s Thursday Doors)
and the wonderful sound of children playing on their lunch break in the local school
… then into the newly opened Symondsbury Kitchen for a warming lunch and a view of Colmer’s Hill from the windows.
A magical morning.
