Seaside Town, Lyme Regis, West Dorset

Lyme Regis, the ‘Pearl of Dorset’  This post is a collection of three years worth of visits, at different times of the year.  It’s a bit late now to do separate posts of each year and it doesn’t really change much over the years, which is one of the attractions of visiting.

Situated at the heart of the world famous Jurassic Coast, Lyme Regis is an historic seaside resort and fishing port.  Lyme’s existence depended upon the Cobb, a small artificial harbour dating from the time of Edward I.  Lyme is exposed to south-westerly gales, and the Cobb acts as both a harbour and a breakwater.  This is really a postcard to tempt you to visit, if you haven’t already discovered this amazing little seaside town.


Good Afternoon Munich, Bavaria, Southern Germany

We have had two weeks of very hot weather, in the late 20’s every day.  I thought I would never say this…..even too hot to garden.  We have had visitors from Switzerland and they have loved the weather and enjoyed every minute of their sunny stay…… we on the other hand, kept a lot in the shade.  I am not moaning about it, I love to see it, but I think it it was all the time, you would have to change your life style, learn how to keep cool and invest in some air conditioning 🙂  Anyway back to the post, we are going to Munich in September to the Oktoberfest and have made our minds up to go on to Switzerland again, go up a few more mountains.  As I still have loads of photos of Munich from 2017,  I have had some fun, in the cool, changing them to mono.  These photos were taken in the afternoon on a walk around this beautiful and interesting city.

A Bite To Eat

I am sorting through some photos of Munich, Bavaria, that I want to change to black & white, when I came across this photo.  We were at the train station waiting for a train, when I just spotted these two young men and thought, if they carry on snacking, they will need some help later on 🙂  

Views From A Train Window

We travelled by train to Venice in 2016, I did post a lot of photos taken from the train windows at the time, but there were a few views that I couldn’t find out where they were.  But there were some wonderful castles, churches and villages that we passed going through Germany, Switzerland and Italy that I would have loved to have visited, but maybe one day I will get to see some of them.  So for now, these photos are of where I would have loved to have jumped off and explored.  


Back Streets of Venice, Italy

Sorting through some photos, I came across some Venice 2106 photos, that I had for some reason not use, mostly likely because I took way too many.  So I thought I would change these to mono and see how they looked.  I like photos that have that timeless feel to them, which you can achieve by changing them to black & white.  Hopefully some of these have that feel, anyway it was fun to do and I hate wasting photos 🙂
