The plan had been to go walking on Dartmoor but the heavy rain put paid to that so instead we went to Lyme Regis.
The sandy beach was created for tourists with sand from France. The rest of the beach to the east is shingle and has been replenished with stone from the Isle of Wight. The huge granite rocks which form part of the sea defences came from Norway.
All rather odd for a place in the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
