Messing About on Sennen Beach

      No Comments on Messing About on Sennen Beach

A glorious day, and time to mess about on the golden sands of Sennen beach. A game of rounders of sorts for Angus’ benefit, followed by coffee at the beach side cafe, where they were kind enough to lay on a pod of about 25 dolphins who came to fish in the bay, regularly breaking the surface as the rounded… Read more »

SWCP – Studland Heath and Bay

      No Comments on SWCP – Studland Heath and Bay

A beautiful day for a walk. March is off to a good start at least, after the last couple of days of wintery showers, it’s now more like summer. But of a nip to the breeze, but lovely out of it. After a peaceful night of wildcamping on the outskirts of town, we had breakfast on the seafront in Swanage…. Read more »

Bamburgh to Seahouses

      No Comments on Bamburgh to Seahouses

A find day throughout, so we made the most and set out along the lovely sandy beach, past the impressive Bamburgh Castle, towards the town of Seahouses. Bamburgh is gentrified, whereas Seahouses is more kiss me quick, but not too bad. Fortunately there was coffee and cake, rejected at the first establishment, but welcomed at the second, a whopping great… Read more »

Back to the coast again for the evening and the town of Dunbar. A pretty little harbour and people lot surfing the waves rolling into Belhaven Bay and the lovely sandy beach. We walked out along the beach and back, and around the town, harbour and cliffs, as well as the obligatory coffee and cake stop. At the harbour is… Read more »

The One With The Towering Inferno

The nice thing about living in a Motorhome is that you get an unlimited supply of other ‘gardens’ to enjoy, whether they are part of a campsite or somewhere nearby, like the beach at St. Andries Bay, just below our current campsite. Last night we invited some chums over for a BBQ, and given that there were 6 of us,… Read more »

The End of the (Coast) Line

      No Comments on The End of the (Coast) Line

Out for a cycle today, as it was a bright if slightly crisp one. We cycled from the north side of Biarritz where the van was parked, down the coast to St-Jean-de-Luz, a much more quaint town with a small harbour, and only a stones throw from the Pyrenees. We enjoyed a delightful little lunch in the sunshine before returning… Read more »

Biarritz Still Has That Sparkle

      No Comments on Biarritz Still Has That Sparkle

Finally made it to one of those, for me, ‘must get to at some time in the life places’. I guess Biarritz’s reputation for glitz and glamour has been eclipsed thanks to the accessibility of long distance and cheap flights, but you can see why it was once very much ‘the place’ to be. Dramatic coastline and grand architecture dominate… Read more »
