Well, it was sunny for about 3 days and now it is rainy and grey again. But we will cherish the memories of those few summer like days! Dan and I have been relatively busy the past weekend/week. I took the train to Bristol Saturday morning for a friend’s hen do. Had an amazing time, there was vintage hair fascinator making, cream tea, cocktail making course, a private karaoke room, and lots of other awesome things! I got back Sunday evening and the next day Dan and I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and went on a little adventure.
Tyneham was evacuated during WWII to be used as a firing range for training troops and although it was supposed to be a temporary measure, it is still owned by the military and is still used for training today.
There are still buildings standing, houses, a school house, church, and a farmyard that is being restored.
After a wander around the abandoned village and through the farmyard (I was hoping there would be lambs after seeing all the spring lambs playing in the field, but apparently historic farmyards don’t keep livestock), we trekked through the forest to the beach.
After Tyneham, we went to a little pub for some late lunch and a pint in the beer garden, you could definitely tell it was a busy bank holiday because they had run out of fish and chips and Dan got the last pint of cider!
It’s Dan’s birthday today and he is out trying to catch some wind kite surfing (he got a new board for his birthday so it needs breaking in!). We have the rest of the week off of work so we are enjoying a bit of relaxation although it looks like the sun may have left us for the rest of our holiday! x
