Our Home-from-Home

We have one more day to go  in our visit to or 'home-from -home' in Weymouth ( our 11th visit) . Today has been very blustery, the para surfers out in the force taking advantage of the winds. We abandoned the idea of  going to the sculpture park on Portland and  walked along to West Weares ( the Portland end of Chesil Beach ) before retreating to the Cove Inn  for a delicious fishy lunch. 

On our first day we also visited  Chesil, meeting up with  local friend Liz Drake at the visitor centre overlooking the Fleet Lagoon . Coffee  lead to lunch as we talked textiles. 

I managed to fit a bit of sketching in at Smallmouth Cove in the late afternoon light. 

We were in Weymouth very early  the next day  to catch a trundly train to Castle Cary  changing there for Taunton, catching up with old friends in Wellington.

 Day 3  was spent walking the Rodwell Trail into Weymouth, birdwatching at RSPB Radipole Lake  then lunch at the Ship overlooking Weymouth Harbour

 Yesterday  we  went to the Octoberfest Beer Festival in the Pavilion  tasting a variety of beers, our favourites having an orange theme. We finished off with a walk along the beach and an ice cream !

Tomorrow it's Sunday lunch at the  New Inn, Easton. Other than eating, we  have been catching up on sleep, reading and in my case stitching. Feeling very relaxed
