To the River Lyme

          We were told that the river walk from Uplyme down to Lyme Regis takes about 45 mins, I’m guessing that would be without the camera though.

          Our starting point from just behind the Talbot Arms, heading along a few secluded lanes gave me another opportunity to peer over walls and behind bushes, imagine sitting out on the decking here on a summer’s evening …

          And who would have thought that enormous garden was hiding behind such a pretty face ?

          The few puddles we encountered along the lanes as we went suggested it was definitely going to be a “wellie walk” but even the recent rains didn’t dampen the spirits with such wonderful views.

          The postman was saved a few extra yards on his travels by this post box on the fence next to the gate.  The walk from the little red door past the spring flowers each morning would almost make William’s letters worth collecting ( … Bill’s).

          Peering deep into the next garden confirmed we were almost at the river.  The bench hidden away at the bottom of the garden seemed the perfect place to watch the water go by.

           More from before: our weeek in “Lyme Regis” in April 2012.

  1. What a beautiful walk! I love the bench in that first shot. And I can well understand how a walk with a camera takes longer than any guide book can anticipate/suggest. 🙂

    • I’m more than happy to spend the extra time it takes to walk with the camera. Half of the places I’ve been I probably wouldn’t have even seen if it hadn’t been for the camera. It’s one of my favourite toys. 😀
