Got out of the county at last after the not too bad weather to see a my friends in Dorset for a few days. Spring is earlier down there – daffs, snowdrops, crocuses and blossom in bloom. Saw egrets, pheasants, swans, ducks etc. but yet to see a deer in the area. Everyone else has!
They live in a most beautiful village with no shops, no bus service, no street lighting and a Post Office two mornings a week. I loved it. Plenty of good walks in the area, both long and short. The Sunday Service was very meaningful and challenging, with delightful people attending.
Eight hours was a long train journey, but well worth it to see my friends. The train fares were strange. For just £1 more I came back First Class. I quite enjoyed that.
