I mentioned at the beginning of the week that I was going to post one photograph every day, well FORGET IT, I’ve got too many to show you to choose just one, plus the sun has come out so I’m all carefree and doing whatever I fancy!
So here is how my day panned out today.
Antiques on every corner
The Mermaid shop and B&B including a female ghost who is very well behaved, I think even if you have a small trace of being artistic inside you, you will find it magical.
This is a description of the Mermaid shop from their web site. The Mermaid Shop is situated in the former Tudor Hotel – one of the oldest buildings in Lyme Regis – in the area that used to be known as the Butter Market.
It is a Tudor house, built in the early 17th century. The building is constructed from local Blue Lias stone and timbers salvaged from the many ships wrecked off Lyme Bay, particularly those of the Spanish Armada. A traditional staircase encircles a smugglers’ hide-out.
In the cellar below the shop there is a magical well, where the Mermaid of Lyme is said to sometimes rest. A pirates’ treasure chest is hidden in the boards of the shop floor.
The owner has a beautiful artist’s studio where she creates all sorts of wonderful things.
A visit to Lyme Regis can never be without a trip to Town Mill Bakery for delicious laid back food.
A very lovely warm sunny day spent at Lyme Regis.
