    I know it's taken me a while to get these pics up, but I've finally got round to it:

    Here's a selection of pics from when a friend and I ventured down to the Purbecks (well, I kinda made him) for a nice jolly:

    This pic is from the Sandbanks/Studland ferry, looking towards Bournemouth.

    And here's arriving at Studland:

    On the drive from Studland down to Lulworth Cove (via the beautiful Corfe Castle) there was an awesome shot that could have been taken overlooking Poole Harbour. Naturally, I couldn't be bothered to stop the car and get one. Silly me.

    Anyway, the next few are in Lulworth Cove:

    This next one is looking back inland from the Cove towards the South Dorset countryside:

    Then I climbed out of the Cove to get shots of it and surroundings:

    These next 2 are of Stair Hole, which will look like Lulworth Cove in a few thousand years due to the natural coastal erosion.

    Now a couple of shots looking back at Lulworth when we started walking to Durdle Door:

    Here's a shot of the lovely coastline to the west:

    Here's another lovely looking bit of the coast we passed:

    And here is Durdle Door itself:

    Yes, so is this:

    I'm hoping to get a lot more pics from Dorset (and Bournemouth and Poole) over the summer, just with my trusty little digital camera!

    Anyhow, the full album is here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=2332...mp;id=591331836

    Hope these pics are enjoyed by anyone reading!

    Hoping to get there myself this year. Did you do any fossil hunting?

    That's nice! No, I didn't, I bought a really short parking ticket in the car park and had to get back to Nottingham that evening! I've not been fossil hunting since I was little in Lyme Regis - I shall have to add that as a destination this summer.
