'Ere d'be greetans vrom wold Darzet m'dears


We are, as you can see, in the depths of Dorset. Learning the language has been somewhat taxing but fortunately they do actually speak English which we can understand in most places. On the other hand the countryside around here is very beautiful with lovely villages dotted around all over the area. We are staying with a friend in the town of Wimbourne which is very near Poole. In our guided tours which Brian has taken us on we have seen Poole and the quayside, been to the beach at Sandbanks, crossed over the mouth of the Poole harbour on the 'chain ferry' to visit Lulwoth, an old fishing village, before walking over the headland to look at Durdle Door - a hole in the rock. We've also visited Kingston Lacey, an old family estate now belonging to the National Trust, and done some lovely countryside walks, on which we've seen some of the local flora and fauna. Thanks, Brian, for sharing your local knowledge and being a wonderful tour guide!
