Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove

Betsy is back from uni for Easter (yay!) and one of her requests was to visit her favourite place while she was home. She loves Durdle Door (and who wouldn’t frankly) and as we woke up to glorious blue skies yesterday we decided to nick off for a day trip while everyone else was at work/school – which always makes me feel a bit guilty, but oh well!

It really is the most stunning place and I do feel lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country! You know what is annoying though? When you spend the day in a beautiful place taking what you imagine will be gorgeous photographs, then get home to discover there must be some dust on your camera sensor, and the vast majority of your photos have a strange triangle of dark dots on them – aaarrrggh!! Still, a few escaped due to aperture or something (I say aperture like I understand photography, I don’t, F stops and W/B is still witchcraft to me!), but here are some that (mostly) escaped the dust dots.

The thing about Durdle Door is that it is utterly beautiful, but it does involve a lot of walking and stair climbing, so we felt we had earnt our lunch. We popped down to Lulworth Cove and after a quick stroll down to the beach there (which is shown in the last couple of snaps above) we went to one of our favourite pubs to refuel. The Lulworth Cove Inn is a gorgeous pub with a delicious menu. We plumped for american subs with skin-on fries, which we scoffed down at window seats with a sea view. The perfect way to round off a gorgeous Spring walk, and of course both being bloggers we had to take a photo of our food too…

 

What a fabulous way to welcome the warmer weather,

Love Miss Cisco XXX

    this looks so magical – would love to visit. Your food looks delicious too handy having somewhere to eat after a bracing walk on the beach xx

    I really haven’t explored the Dorset coast much but it looks so beautiful.

    Enjoy having your big girl back home, and hope you get to sneak off for more days out!

    Wow- you live at Lulworth Cove? I’m so jealous! We always want to explore the cove when we come for Camp Bestival but we seem to get caught up in the excitement of getting to the festival on the way in and the road diversions prevent us from getting near the cove on the way out! Sounds like you had a special day with your daughter!

      Not actually there – about 20 minutes away!

    I remember visiting both places with my parents when I was growing up. It seemed like such a magical place with perfect blue sea and I thought it was the most foreign place I had ever been (I imagined it was the Caribbean)! I adore that last photo with the cameras.

    I think I went to that pub after Camp Bestival – we really must explore more of the coast next time we go to Camp Bestival! Gorgeous pictures, if I was at Uni I would be coming home lots!

    When I first saw these shots, I thought it was a Greek island! So beautiful. I haven’t visited Dorset yet, although we’ve been meaning to for ages.

    Such a lovely place to visit – we went there last year when we went to visit our friends in Weymouth. I’d never even heard of it before, but I thought it was beautiful.
    It’s great that you and Betsy manage to get some quality time together 🙂

    Looks like a fab day, really wish we lived closer to the sea

    It is one of my favourite places to visit but the weather always seems grey when we do. The steps have been rebuilt since our last visit so we hope to be there very soon as it will be easier to get down to

      Yes, a big improvement – don’t have to clamber down rocks now!

    Ahh how glorious Sonya, what a wonderful place to visit. Looks so lovely at Lulworth Cove. We really must make a trip down to Dorset, so much to see 🙂

    What a beautiful place to eat. It looks an amazing place to enjoy with your family. Love the food photo too 🙂

    Such an amazing place and photos, I would visit as often as possible if I lived nearer too!xx

    Oh what a lovely day – my eldest has been home from Uni for Easter too – and she too is a blogger! I love the precious time we have together. Gorgeous beach and photos. Kaz x
