The Jurassic Coast

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 :)

A funeral for a worm

Yesterday was a tragic day. My little brother Jack and our cute little helper, Katie stumbled upon a worm, breathing its very last breaths, abandoned by the side of our driveway. The worm had no friends. She was dying all alone, frying slightly in the evening sun. 

Rushing into my bedroom, the worm tenderly wrapped up in a bit of tissue paper, Katie presented the tragedy to me, asking if I could save the poor thing. There was a dramatic wail of sorrow as I announced the worms time of death. 

A brief, but touching funeral was held. The inscription on the memorial rock above reads, ''I'm sorry you died Kelly''. 

Feel free to hold a minute of silence at your leisure.

Simple pleasures - cake for lunch

My little brother is starting at his new school tomorrow. His tummy has been full of teeny butterflies all day so we decided to bake a cake to take his mind off of his nerves. ♥
