Monday Morning Blues – Lyme Regis in Dorset, UK

This weekend we ventured westwards from London to Dorset. Luckily Storm Arwen bypassed us most of the time, even though one tree did come down and block one of the central thoroughfares. This is a picture of the very nice pub that we had our lunch in on Saturday.

Sunday Photos – Lyme Regis in Dorset

I was brought up only 30-minutes drive away from Lyme yet hadn’t visited the Jurassic Coast town for around 30-years. The town has seen quite a change in that time with extensive renovations that include a lovely sea hugging promenade around the headland towards Charmouth. There are also now a fair few foodie restaurants and […]

Unfortunate news this week of a bad fire in the iconic cafe in Edinburgh where JK Rowling penned parts of her Harry Potter books. Hopefully it can be restored to its glory quickly.

UK Tour 2021 – Days 1 and 2 in Lincoln

With foreign travel off our agenda for the time being, we arranged to visit places in the UK that we had (mostly) not been to before. We first made for Lincoln, braving the Friday madness of the M25 & M11. I had pulled out a couple of aces for our stay – firstly by booking […]

Monday Morning Blues – Holy Island, Northumberland

This morning’s picture comes from just over a week ago, which I took on our UK tour. We arrived on the island by boat from Seahouses and found the place almost deserted as the tide was in making it inaccessible by car at that time. You can see the 16th Century built Lindisfarne Castle in […]

Monday Morning Blues – Knaresborough Viaduct in North Yorkshire, UK

The viaduct across the River Nidd has frequent trains crossing on the way to and from Harrogate. Built in 1851, it replaced the original bridge that collapsed shortly after completion in 1848. Thankfully nobody was […]

Monday Morning Blues – The Longest Day, Stonehenge

For the second time in recent years I find myself travelling along the A303 on the day of the Summer Solstice. The A303 links the South East with the South West of England and as well as being infamous for traffic hold-ups, it is best known for being where Stonehenge is situated. ‘The Henge’ has […]

Monday Morning Blues – The Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales

Just like Cornwall without the crowds, that’s the beautiful stretch of coastline in South Wales. I have been there twice and would love to make it a treble. So peaceful and equally stunning. A perfect memory for beating the Monday Morning Blues!
