On the road again...

Finally I am getting down to sorting through the photos and sharing with you our holiday last month!    In fact I think that we have been back for a month now.  Shocking.  I will get there though and spreading it out makes it more interesting doesn't it.

Today just a few pictures from our journey back to the house after our visit to Abbotsbury.  I took a lot more than this and these were all shot from the car and mostly through the windows.  I deleted way more pictures than I have here.

Hope you enjoy the journey and seeing the countryside!


Beautiful cottages in the Dorset sun.  What could be prettier.






It is lovely to see the countryside and the sea at the same time isn't it.  The clouds were beautiful too.






These sheep were paying no attention to the beautiful view they had.



We came across some sheep crossing the road, it was nice to stop for a moment and watch them pass.
 

I love windblown trees like this, they are amazing.



Then I put the camera away and just enjoyed the view!

More to come another day.

Amy

  2. A great view indeed. Did you know I actually live in a coastal village and yet rarely walk down to the beach, you never appreciate what is on your doorstep.

  7. Dorset is such a pretty place - combines all the best of the sea and the countryside. Have you seen "Far from the Madding Crowd" yet? A lot of it was shot around Dorset. Judy.

  8. Great photos, I will not be going away this summer, I feel as though I am on holiday all the time living here. I will have a couple of nights away at the quilt show in August and possibly a few days with Francesca in October. There will be a trip to Oz for my Nephews wedding to look forward to, and that will mean up to a month away. Luckily their summer is our winter so the garden will not suffer from neglect.

  9. We drove that road on the last day of our holiday to West Bay last year. It was a sunny morning and simply stunning. Thank you for the return visit :0)

  10. Wonderful pictures. It's so good to enjoy the views. Sometimes we travel without noticing and appreciating the details.

  11. Oh it's such a beautiful part of the world isn't it. It looks like you had a wonderful time. The sort of place it is hard to leave. I shall look forward to seeing more of it soon. CJ xx

  12. I've just discovered your blog - your photos are stunning. Dorset is just gorgeous - funnily enough we were there yesterday. At this time of year it's extra-gorgeous, I think. Glad you had a good holiday and I love the pretty things you make :)

  13. Oh, what a fantastic place. So different from my neck of the woods. ;) I have to really smile at the one of the cars stopped for the sheep crossing.

    Oh, I took up crocheting over the winter! I'm completely crazy for it. I think I will be able to tear myself away from it for the gardening season though. I taught myself by watching Youtube videos!

  15. The first picture is my favourite! Those old English cottages are stunning, full of charm and beauty! It was a joy to look at your wonderful pics, you must have spent some special time there. The combination of the countryside and the sea is always the perfect choice to make!

  17. Beautiful photos, such gorgeous views and those cottages are so pretty. The windblown trees always fascinate me.

  18. Amy, some great shots, and your are right about the cottages. Beautiful. It is interesting to see how the wind can change the shape of a tree.

  19. I did much the same last week - I was stopping and jumping out of the car for photo ops every few minutes! And yes, sorting through all those holiday pictures is such a laborious task...
    Glad you enjoyed your holiday and those lovely views.

  20. An old stone thatched cottage is always pleasing to see and especially when they have been so well cared for. They all sit along a very pretty road.

  21. Beautiful pictures, Amy. I really love Dorset, and I agree with you that it is lovely to see the countryside and the seaside at the same time....such stunning views.
    Have a great week.

  24. Lovely pics as always, Amy. The British countryside is just always so pretty, isn't it - and those stone cottages...sigh... they're beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your pics too,
    have a happy week,
    xx

  25. Oh I just want to jump and "Be there"!! So charming and absolutely beautiful - like out of a travel book. Someday maybe I'll see some places like that for myself...::sigh::

    Thanks for letting me live a little of it through your adventures. xoxo

  26. Oh, my goodness!! You will NEVER believe this - we were in that 'sheep rush hour' hold up. We were behind the blue car, on our way to Abbotsbury!! I was driving and my Canadian friend was busy taking photos!!! It was so funny, further back a motorcyclist had his feet trampled on by most of the sheep, heaven only knows what state his boots were in!!! What a small world!! I love that road! The view down the hill to Abbotsbury is the best view in the world!!! X

  27. Those cottages are so very pretty, Amy. I have never visited Dorset. It looks lovely. X

  28. I also enjoy seeing other bloggers images from my neck of the woods, they always capture something different! I hoped you waved in my direction you can see glimpses of part of the coast road you have captured from our lounge!. Sarah x

  29. Beautiful pictures Amy, I still get a thrill when I see the sea appearing on the horizon even though we live right by the coast now. Dorset is lovely, i used to have childhood holidays there xx

  30. How do you take photos through the car window? If I did that they'd all look like a misty day (but that might just be the mould I have growing on my windscreen inside)
    You're going to tell me you have a motorbike and sidecar, aren't you? Do you have leathers?

  36. Oh my I could just take all of this beauty in any time of the day! The rolling landscape is just breath taking Amy! I'm glad you were able to slow down and take in the view buddy! Nicole xoxo

  37. Lovely photos, Amy! This kind of views we often admire in English films and TV series.
    For some reason, the photo number 10 is my favorite. It seems to bring back (forgotten) memories, even though I have never visited the area. :)
    Thank you for sharing and have a great day!

  38. YES, I did enjoy the journey but I do find your very narrow roads kind of scary. :))

  39. that windblown tree is brilliant!

  40. Great views!! What a pretty place to visit. Love those cliffs against the sea ... silly sheep, not appreciating that view.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great photos, Amy. Loved the one of the sheep leisurely crossing the road, making those strange beasts, cars, sit patiently and wait.
