the last bank holiday of the year is upon us, heralding the end of the long school holidays and the last hurrah of summer.
Considering the torrential downpours and seemingly never ending rain at the start of the season, it’s not been a bad one after all.
In June and early July when the brollies were out every day, we were starting to regret booking a ‘staycation’ in Dorset.
Friends heading off on foreign holidays gave me pitying looks when I told them our destination.
But our faith was rewarded with glorious sunshine and time spent on some of the most beautiful beaches we have visited, either here or abroad.
