along the towpath in Wareham and in town this wonderful shop, run by a fabulous Mother & Daughter team,

(who incidentally love DH).

The shop is stuffed full with current & vintage clothes and fabrics, also Daisy Mae makes lovely drawstring lounging trousers and messenger bags, stupidly I didn’t take any pictures, however I will be popping back soon as we venture further East on our days out. They do sell online so take a look at the website.

Then onto Swanage, possibly not the “ picturesque” scene you may expect from me, however this lovely Deco building has been allowed to fall into disrepair, but what great trompe l’oiel

I am a one for timeworn and battered!

Onto the Victorian pier, which like the one at Clevedon, are the only to in the country that have to self fund their restoration, (this makes me very cross, however no ranting today).

They had already raised about seventy thousand pounds and spent it on restoration, only for it all to be wrecked by a massive storm earlier in this year!
