Here are a few random pictures of Lyme Regis. I just loved the harbour and the buildings around the town.
Here you can just see the Cobb along the shoreline
This boat is called a "gig" and Lyme Regis has a very active gig racing club. It was great to watch the boats out in the bay.
Colourful fishing nets around the harbour
These pink cottages are on many a postcard. You can imagine Jane Austen walking through the door of one. However they were built after her visit to Lyme so sadly it's not likely to have been a reality.
Seen from the promenade below.
Pink is clearly a popular colour for houses along te promenade! This house had quite unusual architectural features - not least the rather elaborate drain pipes!
Below is a picture of the apartment block we stayed in. If you're looking to stay in the town I do recommend Lyme Bay Holiday company.
Right - now time to drag my mind from the memory of warm sunshine to the cool autumnal weather in Orkney!
