As Promised - more holiday pictures....



My Other Half staring over the cliffs near Stair Hole. I couldn't resist taking this as he hates heights. I suspect that he is clinging onto the railing out of shot - the sign says it all!


My Other Half having a surrealist moment.

Armillary Sphere in the grounds of Kingston Lacey House.



Part of the Fernery at Kingston Lacey House



Temple at Stourhead




Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens



Abutilon flowers in Abbotsbury



Chesil Beach as seen from the viewing point in Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens. Another steep climb (oh, my aching knees!) but well worth it.




Lulworth Cove seen from the rocks above Stair Hole


Part of the coastal footpath leading to Durdle Door. I really am very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of Britain.



I am going to leave it at that for now as I am in danger of becoming one of those people who insist on boring everyone with their holiday photos. No one is interested but they are too polite to say so!
