Portland, Weymouth and Swanage

Good weekend saw us travel to Dorset visiting places such as Portland, Weymouth and Swanage.

The main reason for this trip was because I came across some photographs for a place called Pulpit Rock in Portland just off Portland Bill. I also read about Portland Bill Lighthouse and I wanted to take photographs of both.

Portland was used for competing in sailing events of 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. I have taken some pictures of the area surrounding the Olympic Rings. 

Here are some of the pictures taken over the weekend.

Portland Castle not one of our better trips

Sold :(

Now we are back from the United States and Florida I have sadly sold Bess, she will leave us at the begining of next week.

I am wondering whether to change the name of the website and find a Photography template, though looking I do not see one.

Wednesday and Thursday nights we took Bess out for the last mini meet we will be attending and I have taken these pictures.
