A Day Out,,,

Tuesday was a beautiful day, after the fog lifted,,, particularly in the South-west of England. My DH and I took a drive out to Lyme Regis,,,, I have never been there before,, and it is Lovely!!
 The car park we parked in is at the top,,,but is one of the cheapest,,, at £1.70 for 24 hours!!!
 When I first saw these steps,,, I was a bit daunted,,, but there weren't as many as I thought.
Nice empty beach,, so, so quiet!! And the sky,, it was so blue,,,
 I have been told that the area hasn't changed much over the years,,,
 We stopped for a coffee, as you do,, in a small place called Aroma,, very friendly.
 Taking the above picture made me want to get out a sketch book,,
This little shop was closed due to a powercut,,, shame,, I would have liked a look around.
 This wall is in 'The French Lieutenants Woman',, never seen the film myself, but I have seen the scene.

 This little thing was sunbathing near to us on the beach.

 DH bought me lunch,,, lovely Fish and Chips,,, have to when you are at the seaside,,,couldn't eat it all though!!!
This photo is of the 'ugly' fabrics I was sent in the Ugly Fabric swap on the Popular Patchwork site,,
I have made something using them,, but am keeping it under wraps for now.
I have been hard at work on my Hexie quilt,, I need to get it finished,,, It is 5 foot wide, not sure of the length yet.



  1. Thank you for the trip out. It looks a lovely day. Hope you kept your left over fish and chips and had them cold for breakfast the next day!!
    Love from Mum

  2. Those fish n chips look so appetizing, haven't had my dinner yet, and my tum is growling!! Looks as though you definitely made the most of the lovely weather, and Lyme Regis was a very good choice. I'm intrigued to see what you are doing with those ugly fabrics.

  3. Lovely photos of Lyme Regis,I don't think we have ever been there but it looks lovely Caz and you had such a lovely day! Hope you enjoyed your birthday. We are like you gotta have fish and chips and eat in the fresh air too,even if the seagulls are nearby. that is part of the fun!!

  4. What a nice get away with DH - it is so nice to spend time together isn't it! Great photos thank you for sharing.

  7. It's surprising how ugly fabric can cheer up when introduced to a bit of fluff, say a bit of velvet or silk, lol
    Your day out looked wonderful, not many people about, just how I like it.
