We've been away on holiday!!
A couple of weeks ago we visited friends staying at Durdle Door campsite. Whilst there I booked a night for the Moog and family.
Yesterday morning - once Moogsdad finally got moving (!!) - we packed the tent and headed west.
Once pitched we walked along the coastal path to Lulworth...
...and spent a happy hour or so on the beach looking at boats, rocks and water...
...and some of the most amazing rock formations in the UK.
All rounded off with some downhill rolling....
....very yummy ice-cream....
....and photographing trees.
I love this garden. It is on the road down to the beach and the owners have hung their yew tree with buckets discarded on the beach.
They also have chickens :)
Once back at camp the Monster and I took the rickety old Moog on an evening walk on the cliffs.
Then it was back to the tent for a night of blissful sleep for the whole family...except for yours truly who turns into an insomniac every time we camp!!
This morning we struck camp and headed to Studland to utilise our National Trust membership in the South Beach Car Park.
Moogsdad was hungry so we went in search of a full English breakfast at Middle Beach and discovered some very well- preserved World War II pillboxes and gun-implacements on the way.
We took the Sandbanks chain ferry and journeyed home via the millionaires community of Sandbanks.
So now we're home, not necessarily well-rested physically but most certainly mentally relaxed.
