Back from a long weekend away

Standard

On Friday we drove to Weymouth on the south coast and stayed in a delightful B and B run by a lovely couple Sue and Grant,they made us so welcome. We had never been to Weymouth before but found it to be a charming little seaside town,many shops in the town were small independant traders which I like as well as the usual high street stores. The harbour is lovely and we spent a few days sitting having a meal and a drink in the harbour watching the boats come and go after our long walks. We needed a break because we hadn’t been away since John had lost his business which is why we booked into a B and B rather than a hotel and we are so glad we did. We took a walk each evening along the beach and the sea front was spotless the bars and restaurants we went to were really nice,we found a (tacky I know but I love it) karaoke bar and we had such a laugh listening to the crooners until way past midnight.
We checked out of our B and B on Tuesday and drove to the Cathederal City of Exeter which I like, we stayed just one night in another B and B, it was five minutes from the Cathederal and it was a 3 story Georgain house that was full of charm and original features.Yesterday afternoon we drove home via Weston Super Mare,another seaside town, we used to take our three boys when they were younger and were upset to hear a few years ago that the pier had burned down, we were keen to see the new pier, we were sadly dissapointed,the pier is full of fair rides and slot machines and a cafe, there is an Edwardian style tea room but the charm of the old pier has been replaced by a modern building and lacks any of the old charm,the town is really shabby looking full of discount stores and cheap bars.We won’t be going back.Sad to leave but relaxed after our short break away, John is back at work on Monday.
So today I am doing laundry,catching up with paperwork and e-mails, I have a few blogs I want to catch up with too.

  1. Sounds like a lovely break, Dawn. Weymouth is a fab little place, isn’t it? We have friends who have a static caravan there, and always enjoy going to visit.
