Lyme Regis in December

The plan had been to go walking on Dartmoor but the heavy rain put paid to that so instead we went to Lyme Regis.

Lyme Regis 1
It was high tide and the sea was lumpy – the Cobb looked rather spectacular from the top of the hill

Lyme Regis 3Some people seemed to like the idea of getting soaked

Lyme Regis 2The habour was flat

Lyme Regis 4Back to Lyme Regis and the famous Undercliffs beyond

Lyme Regis 5It stopped raining and the sun made an effort

Lyme Regis 6The 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.
