It's located a few miles out to sea (via the road along Chesil beach) from Weymouth. The picture of the sunset was taken on our last night there.
It was glorious; the weather was amazing, we were so lucky! No visit to Portland is complete without a trip to Portland Bill lighthouse! It used to be manned (I managed to bump into the original lighthouse keeper, who I could have chatted to for hours) but now it's modern day technology and automated! The view was epic and the coastline just glorious.
When we climbed to the top I managed to snap this photo through the lighthouse window. If you head to Portland I highly recommend a bite to eat at the Lobster Pot tea room/restaurant, just next door to the lighthouse. We ate there most days. They make the most delicious food and their legendary scones, which haven't changed since I was a child, are out of this world!!!
We spent most days taking in the views and walking for miles (although I think the perimeter of Portland is only around 12 miles or so!) On our last day I was thrilled with this photo of poppies which I've printed and sent to Mum. She loves her poppies!
I came back to QVC on Monday with 170 emails to open. It makes me sound very popular but most of them were 'group emails' so only around 6 or 7 were directed to me :-) I have a busy schedule ahead of me. I'm looking after a Liz Earle show this Saturday afternoon and on Sunday afternoon watch out for a very special Charlie Bears show!
Take care and see you soon
Ps. Quick question – wasn't there once a children's TV show about Portland Bill or is it my imagination??
