The continued adventures Of Jeni , Bill and Millie……..
Being based in Salisbury for the next few months means that we have a whole host of wild spaces right on our doorsteps; from chalke downs rolling for miles, to bubbling streams flowing through picturesque villages, as well as the ancient oaks and expansive heathlands of the New Forest. Those are all easily within a 30minute drive, and for others no carbon footprint is required. It also means that if we hop in the van and head on down to the coast, we can be immersed in the spectacular Jurassic Coast within an hour. So that’s what we did last weekend.
Before we lived in the van full time, we regularly frequented places such as Swanage, Kimmeridge, Weymouth and Portland. They were easy for us to get to and they had plenty to offer. Whether we wanted to relax by the sea, walk the rugged coast path, get lost in lush countryside or head for coffee in a quirky café (plus there’s usually some pretty decent fish and chip shops).
The weather was sunny, but with a chill in the air and a stiff breeze kicking up leaves and tangling my hair – it was a woolly hat kind of day. The perfect day for a trip to Portland for a cup of tea with a dramatic seascape view, and possibly a portion of chips in the old harbour at Weymouth later on (it would be rude not to!).
