On Wednesday, my early morning reading meant I finished ‘Promise Me’, so I wrote the review ready to post here on our return. I make a point of staying free of internet activity when away from home, as a way of taking a break from the constant demands of the online life.
After breakfast, we tried to contact Jim and Linda with a view to making another visit, but, unbeknown to us, Jim’s mobile was playing up, so he couldn’t respond; we assumed they were visiting friends in the area.
We visited the small supermarket for more fresh food and returned to the house for a spot of lunch. In the afternoon, when a second call to Jim proved equally unsuccessful, we set out across the fields behind the house, crossing the river at the bottom and exploring some of the hills surrounding the town, among them Dragon Hill.
It wasn’t a long walk, but it showed us some of the area and we enjoyed the peace and the simple beauty.
Our evening was spent reading and watching some telly.
Thursday was our last full day and we tidied up before taking our planned walk.
This took us past parts of Uplyme and then through the countryside and some small villages in a circular walk that included some really pretty scenery.
Again, it was peaceful. And, with the sun shining, we thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
Off along the riverside to Antonio’s again. Another splendid meal – it’s no surprise you need to book to eat here.
Then a walk back the same way. We were in time to see the second half of the Women’s World Cup match between England and Norway, which ended the evening well.
Friday we did the final tidy-up and packed, returned the keys to the agency, and set off back home.
Our week in Lyme Regis was relaxing and enjoyable, but, as is so often the case, we were glad to be back home. Naturally, we had a walk in the forest once we’d unpacked!
