On the way to Morrison’s

I realise I’m very lucky to live where I do. Today I felt especially privileged on a misty summer’s morning, when I stopped three times on the way to do my weekly shop to take stock of my surroundings.

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.William Henry Davies

Starting with the view from the bottom of my garden, while I was hanging out the washing … that striking conical tree is actually two – one behind the other. I thought I hadn’t seen it before!

Pinhay mist

Next stop, the car park at the top of Charmouth Road in Lyme Regis – a good spot to enjoy the view east. Amazingly delicate colours in the clouds and mist.

And halfway there – a quick excursion up Quarry Hill in Chideock to admire the view north over the Marshwood Vale.

I had to tear myself away and focus on the mundane necessities of life after that!
