Dorset Summer Holiday 2016

We are staying in the local area and decided to spend a day at Lulworth Cove. My childhood memories are coming here on a school trip, and walking with my mum, dad and sister. I’m sure I have some old photos somewhere.

We walk the short distance from the car park to firstly admire the views of Stair Hole. Phil and Tom took a walk down into the cove, while Nigel and me admired the beauty from the top.

There are alot of visitors to the cove today so what we imagine is going to be peaceful isn’t quite but this doesn’t spoil the beauty of the place.

After a short walk to the cove the boys enjoy skimming stones before we enjoy our picnic lunch. The weather is cloudy but still a warm day at 20°C. Toms record was 10 skims, pretty good effort!!!!

With Durdle Door just over the next hill we decide to take the 1 mile stroll over the coastal path. It’s tough going but we take it slowly stopping to enjoy the views.

Stunning views from the top. The boys enjoy looking at the ships and use an app on Phils phone to identify them.

As we head over the brow we get a peak at the Durdle Door. It’s too much of a temptation, so Phil and I enjoy the short but another steep incline.

A quick photo, then we set off back. It took 1.5 hours to see some really stunning beauty and admire the old historical coast. 

The last stop of the day is to enjoy a well earned drink and cake in the pretty Lulworth Cove Inn.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
