A few weeks ago I booked us a short, 4 day break in a caravan at West Bay in Dorset. Many of you won’t know where West Bay is, but it is the small port attached to the west Dorset town of Bridport, and in recent times is better known as Broadchurch from the TV detective series of the same name. Chris and the dogs had never stayed in a caravan before, so I was hoping that they were going to like it.
We were told check in was from 4pm so we were in no hurry. We packed during the morning and loaded the car after lunch – in the pouring rain. The rain continued throughout the hour-long drive down to West Bay. We arrived at 3pm and fortunately were able to check into the caravan early. By the time we had unpacked the rain had just about stopped, so we took the dogs for a walk down the beach. As you can see, it was a little bit bleak, but those cliffs in the background are easily recognisable if you watched the TV series.
As you can see, Chris wasn’t too sure about the weather, but the dogs were really happy to be there.
After a short walk it was back to the caravan, where Chris and the dogs settled down for the evening.
Unfortunately rain is forecast for most of the week, but I’m hoping to get out and about with the camera.

My Sunday morning baking resulted in a batch of egg custard tarts.
