Sandy Toes ...

Guess where we spent Easter?

Camping in beautiful Dorset!

It was very spontaneous; decided on Thursday, went on Friday.  We didn't book anything, simply packed the car and went.  It was absolutely GLORIOUS!

We've come home with sun burnt shoulders, handfuls of beach treasure (I have a little project in mind), 300 photos and a hootling pile of dirty washing but so completely refreshed and recharged.

Hope you all had a fabulous Easter.



  1. Looks lovely, how wonderful just to pack and go on the spur of the moment!

  15. Aw, I have a pang of homesickness from looking at these. What a lovely place. Those houses are so pretty and I love the castle ruins and the perfect gate. I think you captured the magic of this place so well. x
