Yesterday my family and I got up really early and took a trip down to the Jurassic Coast. It was a lovely journey, very sunny and hazy and we stopped off at a sweet little tea room to have some breakfast.
We decided to spend the day at the little coastal town of East Lulworth. We parked the car at Lulworth cove and wandered around the museum and heritage centre, before walking down to the cove and exploring the rock pools.
After we finished our ice creams (caramel fudge clotted cream - I know) it was time to climb the incredibly steep hill that lead to the cliffs. I resented that hill too much to take a photo of it, but I can assure you it was very steep!
It didn't matter though, because when we reached the top we were met with the following views:
This last picture is of Durdle Door which is a natural limestone arch. On the opposite side there was a stretch of cliff leading out to the sea, still fully intact. At the bottom of the cliff was a tiny, miniature version of this arch, which will apparently look the same as this one in some thousands of years time.
While we were walking along the cliffs edge, we spotted some old people having a breakfast picnic and reading the newspaper. It must be such a peaceful and lovely place to spend the weekend :)
