Easter Weekend...

Happy Easter folks...!

I hope you've been making the most of the long weekend & the fabulous weather.

As it is rare, that I have a weekend like this to spend with Mr Red Bird we decided to jump in the car and made our first camping trip of 2014 with a little expedition to the beautiful coastal town of Lyme Regis. It being bank holiday did mean that the trip took us a little longer than we liked, but just over 2 hours to be by the coast was pretty good!

We've made this trip once before and have been longing to go back ever since. Great scenery, coffee, restaurants & fish and chips...need I say more?

We camped at Cummins Farm Campsite which was situated nearby the town centre. A walk of about 40 minute through the fields of sheep & newborn lamb was gorgeous whereby you follow the River Lym right into the centre of the town.

With lots to explore, this busy place is ideal for people of all ages and great for families with children too!

Our favourite places to visit were:
Town Mill Bakery for freshly baked sourdough toast, hot cross buns, cakes, hot lunches & amazing Origin Coffee.
Lyme Regis Antique & Craft Centre for an array of all things vintage.
The Millside Restaurant for great quality fresh seasonal ingredients locally sourced.
Herbies for great Pollock and chips by the seaside.

Today we found ourselves soaking up the sun back in Bristol.
We simply couldn't resist the breakfast on offer at The Lido, and were both temped by the Turkish Eggs on Sourdough. This is a favourite haunt of ours on a weekend as it's tucked away from the busy streets and having a poolside breakfast in the sun...well, it's almost like being on holiday!
After a much relaxed breakfast, a couple of coffees and a read of all the papers a walk was in order. We are lucky enough to have the beautiful sights such as the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and a leisurely walk around Clifton Village in the sunshine is just perfect.

  1. I'v never visited lyme Regis but I really fancy it now! I love having tapas at the lido - especially on a sunny day! Looks like a great weekend!

    1. Ah Kate, I'd definitely recommend a visit, there's such a great beach too. Half's pebbly & the rest is sand with lots of fossils to be found if you look hard enough! Wishing for me more warm weather now...

  2. That Lido breakfast just made me really hungry and sent me running to my fridge for left overs :)
    Did you take the upper pictures with a lomo camera? I love the vintage touch they have.
    Hope you had a blast in Thailand!
