It’s amazing how much rain seems to fall out of the UK skies at the moment! Most of you will know from the news that there is massive flooding throughout the south coast, including the whole of Dorset. The picture below is typical of Dorset footpaths at the moment – impassable!
A combination of this and also a hospital visit for a minor op has somewhat curtailed my activities over the last month or so……but not entirely :)! There is always somewhere to walk and I have a few places that usually manage to stay dry enough and one of these is the Dorset sea front where the prom kind of stays dry. It is often covered in thick sand from the storms and/or sea spray from the howling winds and high tides, but at least there is no MUD :)!!
High tide breeches the sea wall!
In fact it is quite civilised and makes a change from the countryside as there are no hills to climb, food and drinks on tap all along the route, and dry seats to sit on in the various cafes etc that stay open in winter :)! And you can walk for miles! It’s not necessarily a walk that makes for an interesting blog entry but I thought I would put up a series of pictures taken on my various wanders over recent weeks………a sort of pictorial blog!
I hope you enjoyed this brief visit to the sea front with me………and I am really hoping that normal service will be resumed in the very near future. Now where did I leave my umbrella!
Thanks for reading.
Until next time,

We enjoyed your photos Terry. Hope you are up and running again soon and that the weather becomes kinder to us all.
Hopefully, we may get a long warm, beautiful summer 🙂

Hi John and Liz
Good to hear from you. Hope you are both keeping well. Yes, I think we deserve a long, dry summer 🙂
Thank you ALS 🙂
Love your photos. My favourite is the person on the bench in the rain. Hopefully the weather improves for you soon.
Thanks Linny 🙂
Thanks for an interesting post with good pictures, I hope you are recovering well. I have always enjoyed walking along the prom near Bournemouth whatever the weather.
Down here in Devon we have also been forced to look for different walks that are not saturated. This has made us explore parts of the Coast Path around Torquay and around Dawlish (before the sea wall went) that we would not have considered previously. We have found some lovely new walks because of this!
Thanks Philip 🙂 They say every cloud has a silver lining. I think for me, it makes me appreciate the countryside even more when the drier weather finally comes and I am able to get out again :).
