Dorset Summer Break

We had a fabulous break in Dorset, staying in Uplyme (Devon) near Lyme Regis. Most days we walked down to the town, following the river Lyme through a meadow and past an old water mill – beautiful! I had booked up for a Fossil Walk with Brandon Lennon and we had an amazing 3 hours on the beach being educated about fossils and the local geography. We came home with a bucket load of rocks with ammonites and belemnites!! Highly recommended!! If you are not familiar with the area, it is a World Heritage Site and known as the Jurassic Coast. The museum celebrates the life of Mary Anning one of the first fossil collectors in the country.

On the way home we stopped at Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre. The weather was not great, so unfortunately I didn’t get many good photos, but it was a wonderful day all the same! Our hearts were captured by a tiny baby orangutang…..
