We managed to slip away for a mini holiday of two days in Charmouth .
Sunny and sheltered from the north wind on the beach here , fossil hunting and my husband was very lucky this time , to find a little Ichthyosaur vertebra .
I gathered driftwood and firewood to bring home with us .
We popped into Groves Nursery Bridport where I filled brown paper bags with bean seeds and onions .
Lyme Regis for sharing a portion of fish,n,chips from the kiosk along the far end of the seafront near where the yachts are . A very generous portion , steaming hot , vinegary and salty on our fingers ..racing back to enjoy them in the car before the snow began .
The snow was lovely to see , sadly it didn't last .
Then off to Axminster to rummage in our favourite antique shop which also has a fabulous selection of secondhand books , Coffee and cake in The River Cottage Cafe .
Driving home we cut across Dartmoor, to see more snow on the hills .
I took lots of photos of trees and ... er ....pink sheep .
Sigh ....it was good to get away , even just for these two days .
Today I sowed three pots of Cherokee Purple Tomato seeds and put them on the kitchen windowsill to germinate .
Tired but happy ....over and out :)
