Even though i had seen photos before, and had well quite voluntarily decided to come here, it had to convince myself that this really was the english coast. maybe it was the balmy weather, the rock formations or might have been the moderately bearable temperature of the water, but it sure felt like an island off the mediterranean
the jurassic coast is a beautiful piece of coastline that stretches from east devon to studland on the south coast of the uk. i was lucky enough to explore the area from weymouth to lulworth, and that too with the sun shining brightly for the most part, and sometimes too brightly i say! it can get surprisingly (and frustratingly) hot here – i don’t mean to be tempting fate though, so all the weather gods listening in … no this is not an invitation for rain!
the jurassic coast in dorset is a walker’s delight. walking the green arable hills along the coast with the blue sea on one side and green grass with large farms on the other. the area between durdle and lulworth is particularly beautiful, and is a geological goldmine. the erosion and the rock formations through the different ages are quite visible in the bare rock structures that follow you all along the coast. can’t wait to go back – if you’re in london or are visiting the uk and want a good weekend getaway – i’d highly recommend the south coast – walk from swanage to weymouth and you’ll want to set up camp permanently. ah and don’t forget to try the local purbeck cider and he conker gin when you do visit . . .
