A Sunny Day In Dorset

The weekend before last we had some friends to stay, and is our usual haunt on a sunny weekend we nipped over to my favourite county, Dorset.

Catching the Sandbanks ferry, a drive through Studland down to Swanage where we caught the train to Corfe Castle.

It was a diesel train up, but a proper grit in your eye steam affair back to Swanage.
The castle itself I've only ever seen from a distance, I've never actually climbed over its decaying bits before. But it's truly lovely on a sunny day as you can see for miles, well over to Poole in the distance.

As always the entrance fee to the castle entails a sharp intake of breath, but then that's nothing new. Corfe village is equally as pretty, made more famous recently by Mary Portas doing her make over thing of the local village shop. When I had a nose in there it looked as busy as it was during the show. I'm sure the owners feel their licence fee is worth it now!

Here's a few more snaps to enjoy.
