Bluebell Woods and Family Fun

This weekend I headed back down to Dorset/Devon for a wonderful weekend in the sunshine. On Saturday morning I headed straight out to Coney’s Castle to enjoy this year’s Bluebell woods spectacle. Later on in the morning my parents and I headed over to Honiton where we joined David and Yvonne in working on their garden. A couple of hours of work saw the garden beginning to take shape. After lunch we headed back to Fishpond where I spent a glorious afternoon sunbathing in the garden. After tea I headed down to the recently reopened Bottle Inn in Marshwood for a couple of pints of San Miguel before making my way back home along the lanes. I am very pleased that the bottle inn has reopened; visiting it when home is more than just a tradition, it’s a¬†necessity!

On returning to the pond I gathered up my newly acquired Swag and made my way up to Lambert’s Castle where I spent the night. I had the most beautiful nights sleep and awoke to the Dawn chorus ringing out over the Marshwood Vale.

On Sunday morning I went with my parents to Uplyme before walking on to Lyme Regis and then along the beach to Charmouth where I went for a swim. I then headed inland to Champernhayes Forest for yet more Bluebells. Sunday afternoon was spent in the garden before returning to Swindon on the train after what was a glorious weekend.

Below are a small selection of photographs from the weekend.
