Back to the Pond

Last Weekend I headed down for a long weekend in Fishpond Bottom to visit my parents and my brother’s family.
On Sunday I went down to Lyme Regis to have a look at the land stabilisation works and new sea wall along East Cliff. There is a pleasant view from the path along the top of the sea wall out towards Charmouth and Golden Cap an additional benefit is that the beach at the end of the sea wall is now accessible. I walked along the beach all the way to Charmouth to have another look at the Mouth of the Char which had previously shifted eastwards during a major storm. Although the outflow was now directly in front of the mouth again, the beachfront Cafe looked to be in a perilous situation requiring urgent remedial attention. After spending a couple of hours in light winds on Charmouth Beach I walked back inland to Fishpond Bottom. I returned to London on the Monday.
