Beer and Lyme Regis, seaside towns in Dorset

It was all happening on the day we went to Beer (the name of a town by the beach, not the beverage). It was like being on a film set of a movie. There were rows and rows of beach boxes – some were occupied but most were not. Colourful striped beach chairs lined the pebbled beach. There was a group of men getting their boats set-up for a day out sailing. Beach stalls were having a good busy day of business selling food and drinks. It was a fantastic day for people watching.

On another day, we visited Lyme Regis. We were lucky that it was hot (yes, HOT!). It was busy with loads of people there enjoying the day out in the sun. We had a lazy afternoon; walked around the built-up beach area, took loads of photos, sat on the grass, had lunch and sat on the grass some more.

Lots to take in. This artist is busy recording the scene on the beach.
