Memory jog

I was trying to remember the name of the camp site we stayed at in Uplyme, a short walk away from Lyme Regis. I could remember a little about the week we spent there, but the name escaped me until a visit to the blog and a few taps and clicks on the keyboard brought me to “Hook Farm” and a few other posts which helped the memories to return.

46. The Cob & beach.

          I remembered walking along the prom and around the high wall of “The Cob“, which in turn led me to remember the visit to Lyme Regis in Jane Austin’s book, Persuasion.

85. Tide out.

          It also reminded me how much I enjoy a harbour, the sights, smells and sounds are quite different from the seaside.

88. Lobster cages.

          The bright colours in these nets make the stone and seagulls behind look almost black and white in comparison..

89. Nets.

          And, of course these weren’t the steps where one of the young ladies in the film threw herself (literally) at our hero, but again, they’ve reminded me I haven’t seen a Jane Austin film in a while, I’ll have to rectify that this weekend, starting I think with Persuasion.

82. Three people.

… and the boats

          Well, after all the posts I’ve done about the actual getting to Lyme Regis, it would be a bit mad not to show you the boats and the sea wouldn’t it.  I’d like to think my pictures are a little more than holiday snaps, but at the end of the day they are supposed to be for, and most certainly will trigger memories when I look back at them.  At the risk of you getting fed up of Lyme Regis I’m going to just add this one last look the harbour and beyond.

Which way to go ?

          This way maybe ?

          Through here ?

          Or maybe over here ?

           No hurry, take your time, see you in Lyme.
