Blowing Away the Cobwebs

A couple of weekends ago we decided to take a jaunt down to our favourite seaside resort, lovely Lyme Regis. On the way we may have made a very tiny detour into Axminster to partake of some lovely breakfast at the River Cottage Canteen. A bacon butty is a very necessary start to the weekend.
Unfortunately, when we arrived in Lyme it was raining. We sat in the car for a few minutes debating whether to just turn around and go home but then we decided we needed to be British about things and not let a little inclement weather spoil our visit to the seaside. 
As luck would have it, after about 20 minutes the rain clouds toddled off and left us with some lovely blue skies and autumn sunshine. Perfect weather for crabbing; although if you're DC any weather is perfect weather for crabbing.


This was the only critter we caught

Lovely view from the end of the Cobb with Jurassic Coast cliffs in the distance
Oh, Lyme Regis, you are so pretty 
After all that crabbing, it was time for a pit stop in the amusement arcade; hours of fun to be had bashing rubber sharks.
 Before a little stroll along the prom prom prom (alas there was no brass band playing tiddly om pom pom).
 It looks positively tropical, don't you think?!?
