Lyme Regis with Love

Whilst in Dorset on my mini break we visited Lyme Regis, which was about 5 miles from where we were staying. It was a beautiful little seaside town with a lovely prom.
We wandered around the town first, great little shops.

Ginger Beer was beautiful and had the most amazing displays.

Then a couple of local charity shop stuffed to the gunnel's with things to buy.

Also a tiny but gorgeous shop full of CK and with the most amazing staircase.

Unfortunately I was not aloud to take photos!! which is a shame as I'm sure you would have all loved to have seen inside.

Then we went on a lovely long walk along the sea front with Milo (chocolate lab).

The prom had the most beautiful houses along it all with their own unique style.

Neapolitan beach huts with vintage curtains adorned the beach, fishing boats bobbed in the harbour and the wind blew and the rain threatened!!

So we walked and walked and then had a hot chocolate in a beach front pub.

Milo thoroughly enjoyed the walk & swim in the sea and we were all exhausted from the fresh air.

So off we went home for some lunch, & that's all from my visit to Dorset.

We went to Lyme Regis on our Wedding Anniversary,back in October.
I found also stumbled across that little shop,'A Touch of Vintage'. (and took photos, which I think are on my blog)
I thought Lyme Regis was a lovely place and we had a glorious sunny day too.

I love that driftwood Christmas tree. Off to google where I can get one, or maybe I should go to the beach and look for driftwood!
