Hello again! It’s been a while…

aprilblogheader

Well, after a rather long hiatus from blogging, partially because I wasn’t feeling much like writing and partly because I had forgotten my login details, I am back with you all again. Hello from Bridport! It was a lovely start to April today, lots of sunshine despite some looming clouds so Alan and I headed off on a walk to West Bay to have a nice beach day.

Despite some brooding storm clouds towards town, the Bay stayed dry while we were there and the walk home was lovely. Alan even found a human size hamster wheel in one of the fields. *wink*

Hopefully we will be back blogging more regularly here though we can’t promise to do so daily. I for one have a lot more to share with you all but for now I bid you a good weekend and a good night!

Christmas in Lyme Regis: Lights and Window Displays

christmas in lyme regis

 

Ever since I was a child I always loved looking at the lights and window displays in shops and around the towns/cities I lived in. Coming from America a Christmas display was always a big deal and I still remember the magical feeling of seeing New York City all ‘done up’ for Christmas and all the local shops in the towns I’d lived in decorated plus the light displays at the houses along the streets. I’ve been enjoying seeing the lights in Bridport, my new home, and thought it would be interesting to see what one of my favourite coastal towns, Lyme Regis, had done for flair during the festive season. So off Alan and I went today to see as well as become battered by the strong winds when we stopped at the Cobb…

One of my favourite cottages near the Cobb had its windows all done up.

Aren’t they magnificent?

The best kind of light, natural light from the moon lighting up the sea…

A Look Inside: The Alleyways, The Woodman Inn, & The Electric Palace in #Bridport

Yesterday we also went to The Alleyways, the Woodman Inn for a late lunch and the tearoom at the Electric Palace. If people think there’s nothing to do in Bridport they are sorely mistaken!
Here are a few of my favourites from the Alleyways:

As a writer I’m in love with the nostalgia of typewriters! The vintage bottles and car front were just too good to pass up!

Inside the Woodman Inn, one of the many pubs available to visit in Bridport and one which I had not yet been inside…
