From the Cobb


A small harbour at Lyme Regis, in the UK.  Taken at the end of the day as the sun was sinking behind the cliffs, throwing a shadow across the gathering of boats.  A popular town with tourists, it’s main draw is it’s location in the length of coastline known as the ‘Jurassic Coast’, renown for the fossils that are found on the beaches and in the cliffs.

  1. Lyme Regis – I always want to like it, but really it’s rather disappointing. I admit it’s better now than say 10 years back – but somehow a few fossils isn’t enough to endear me to the place.

    • It’s the first time that I’ve spent any time down in that neck of the woods for 15 years or more, so it’s difficult to make any comparisons. I found it pleasant enough. I think there is a realisation that to keep people coming back they have to offer something other than a few shops and a harbour – so their expenditure on improving ‘the front’ is worthwhile.
