A Trip to the South Coast, Highcliffe, Dorset - 20th September 2019

We're away for the sixth weekend on the trot - this time to Uncle Neil's wedding in Bransgore. We're staying for a couple of nights at the nearby-ish Premier Inn in Highcliffe - one of our more regular hunts - and have a bit of time to walk down to the beach for a mess about looking for fossils in the clay slumps along the shore

We stop off for a wee at the upgraded Fleet Services on the M3

Spiky seed heads on the cliff top

Aiieeee! Times four

Fred stands on the mud hills

On the beach

The boys on the top of the cliff

The closed shelter is being re-opened in the middle of winter

The literal sign says it like it is
