Last week when we were in Dorset the weather was very mixed. In fact, it was a week of two halves, with the first half being pretty grim (think thick fog, drizzle, rain, blustery, cold, damp, wet, and grey) and the second half being pretty good (think blustery, showery, sunny, cold, warm, blue, light and bright). We took it all in our stride, venturing out each and every day to appreciate the joys of being at the coast no matter what the weather was playing at. The first morning saw us take our traditional first visit to West Bay, to walk in the footsteps of my childhood, eat a scrummy late breakfast at my favourite Watch House café and breathe in the delicious fresh, salty sea air. It was cold, windy and very grey with a thick, damp fog hanging low over the landscape, but oh how I loved it! We walked around the foggy harbour, then out along the windswept pier and filled our lungs with gulps of fresh air.
