The Etches Collection, Kimmeridge, Dorset

Etches Collection

Living on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, my kids are keen fossil hunters and love nothing more than chipping away at rocks and stones in the hope that they will find some prehistoric treasure.

We were invited to visit The Etches… Continue Reading “The Etches Collection, Kimmeridge, Dorset”

Airbourne, Eastbourne’s International Airshow!

#bmthairfest

My favourite childhood memory is being stood on the seafront watching the Red Arrows roaring across the sky in front of me with their colours of red, white and blue trailing behind them and my love of aircraft has stayed with me ever since. Without fail, every year we make sure we see the Red Arrows displaying if they are local, from Lyme Regis to Lymington and we ensure we get there early to get the best spots, but it… Continue Reading “Airbourne, Eastbourne’s International Airshow!”
