Walking along the prom at Seaton May2020

As it is now allowed to travel to exercise we took a trip to the seaside at Seaton which is 20 miles from us.

It was a beautiful day, blue sky and seamless sunshine and the sea was calm with the waves just gently lapping the sand.DSC03951

There were few people about, and those that were were keeping their 2 metre distance.DSC03953

A group of 4 teenagers went swimming in the sea.  I imagine it was still quite cold.

The benches were mostly empty which makes a change but just shows how few people were there. Neil took advantage for this snap.DSC03954

There were gorgeous banks of flowers along the promenade.DSC03955DSC03957

I took the opportunity to wear a sun dress – makes a change from gardening clothes.DSC03959

It was really gorgeous there and as I had not been out anywhere (except our local lanes) for 8 weeks made a great change.DSC03961

However, there was no where to buy an ice cream or any refreshment open, and the public toilets were also all closed, so if you are going to Seaton, bear this in mind.

Anniversary trip to Seaton in the sunshine

Thursday 18th June was our 21st wedding anniversary.  We still had to do some chores in the morning but in the afternoon we went down to the coast at Seaton.  It was the most glorious sunny day and we wandered along the pebble beach.

We sat on the beach taking in the sunshine and just watching the sea crashing against the beach.

I just love the surf on the pebbles.

Of course we had to have an icecream!!

We stopped by the tram terminus.  Trams run daily from Seaton to Colyton and back.  We must do this one day.

In the evening we went to an Italian restaurant called La Bella Luna in Chard for a lovely meal.  Great to celebrate 21 happy years together.

Visit to Burrow Farm Gardens and Charmouth Beach

Today, being our 20th wedding anniversary and also a lovely sunny day, we took ourselves out for the day.  The first place we visited was Burrow Farm Gardens.  It is 10 acres of beautiful gardens, ponds, bogs, woodland garden and beautiful views.  This was the Millenium Garden.

There were some lovely really large Iris flowers in this garden.

I spotted a really large wild foxglove.

There were several stone statues throughout the gardens.

There were quite a few specimens of this plant that looks like enormous rhubarb and has the most gigantic leaves, I don’t know what it is called.

We sat by the pond watching the ducks and admiring the view up the hill.

We had a spot of lunch in their tea rooms and then left for the coast.  Charmouth is just a bit further East of Lyme Regis and is quite unspoilt and not commercialised at all.  It is a stony beach and when we walked along the pebbles the wind came up although it was really sunny. This is me in front of the beach huts.

And this is Neil along the beach.

There was one lady in the sea having a dip but we contented ourselves with Neil skimming stones and me watching!!

And then of course we stopped to have an ice cream – got to be done when you are on the beach.  So all in all a really pleasant day out and all not far from here.
