Dorset days

A month since we were in Venice and we’re still enjoying the memories…

But there have been some lovely moments back home in Dorset. We went to the thought provoking and moving production by Wimborne Community Theatre “What They Left Behind”. Based on stories around objects left behind by those involved in the First World War, and the effect it has on Wimborne families. It was set in four different settings all,within earshot of the Quaterjack bell in the Minster. Sobering and sad, with touches of humour.

We have also enjoyed travelling Dorset lanes edged with drifts of cow parsley, to visit artists studios taking part in Dorset Art Weeks. Potters, painters, textile artists, glass makers, wood workers and more. Many work quietly in studios in their own homes for most of the year, hidden away in beautiful rural settings, but open their doors to the public for two wonderful weeks. Find out more here…

And then we have the wonderful Dorset coastline, which was especially beautiful in the sunshine this week. Yes, we did have a few hours when the clouds parted!

We love Dorset! 😍
