Tuesday August 11th: Poole, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door

Today we spent our entire day photographing along the Jurasic Coast, visiting Poole and Lulworth Cove this morning and then onto Durdle Door in the afternoon. This region also has many beautiful thatched roofs. 

After lunch we visited the small village of Lulworth and then a little further along the coast to hike the trail to Durdle Door. Durdle Door is a giant arch that has eroded over time. A beautiful hike and rewarding images.

Tomorrow we head even further south towards Cornwall photographing various regions along the coast then ending up in Plymouth for the next three night. Enjoy todays selection of photographs.

Today is the first chance I have had to check out your blog. I am totally envious of your trip. Beautiful pictures. I am certain there were some members that did not cross that glass section on the bridge a couple of days back. Enjoy the B & W's.

Thanks for bringing back some great memories for me to this area of England. I enjoyed lunch at the Lord Nelson with my Girl Guides! We then headed to Brownsea Island, the founding place of Boy Scouts/Girl Guides.
