01 May My Greatest Admiration for Dorset Beaches
My greatest admiration for Dorset beaches shall unfold with this post. As we enter May (spring), and for the summer months, I am going to share my passion for Dorset beaches. There are about 55 beaches in Dorset. I know, right now you are like; “…WHAT!!!???…”. Yes, I know. They are that many and I aim to explore and share every beach I will get to visit.
The Dorset County
Dorset is jam-packed with the World Heritage including essential key places such as the Jurassic Coast shores and Lulworth Coves. There are historical tourist walk paths from Lyme Regis to Studland Bay. Views obviously captivate the eye with every step. Likewise, I will cover places such as Wareham, Bridport, Christchurch and the beautiful Bournemouth. I am extremely proud to call Bournemouth home. I will be honoured “Duchess of Dorset Beaches” by the time I finish writing,
The other day I was talking to my friend. She kept nagging about not going anywhere for the summer holidays. Her workplace could not allow annual leave during this period of the year. It was like her world had come to an end. She kept talking about her boring life that had no fascinating things to do besides work, work, work. I had no choice but had to remind her that were we not living in the beautiful county of Dorset. A blessed county with over-pouring naturabilia for example forests, parks, beaches, heathlands, valleys, coves, to name a few. By the way, I made up the word “…naturabilia…” from memorabilia. It works sometimes. Ha ha ha … ♥
What Makes Dorset Great
I want to share with people what so much joy and pleasure can be achieved from appreciating natural resources. They are easily accessible and most of all, are free of charge. Dorset Beaches is one most significant example. Even people who don’t live in Dorset can identify resources next to them that can be of great amusement.
Back to my main topic, most of my future blogs will detail my beaches of interest. I will cover the actual locations of known and unknown places and the most highlights of those areas. It could be small things such as what is next to that particular beach. For example Theatres or merely the ‘Big Wheel’.
I have been to some beaches which some have their famous walking circles as their main attractive features. Durdle Door in West Lulworth is renown for such activities. Again I will share in depth when I get to revisit Lulworth.
Some beaches are merely famous because of their exceptional or colourful ‘Beach Huts’. Inseparable. Like ‘strawberry and cream’ or ‘salt and pepper’ or ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to say the least? I am sure you can about add your favourite inseparable on the list. How about the actual type of the beach for example ‘pebble beach’ or sand beach’? Usually, people are drawn to a beach mainly because of its kind. I cannot wait to embark on my journeys and gladly pinpoint, which is what and where exactly.
Significant Images Found at Beaches
If you are like me, ‘The Pier’ is a fascinating thing to see on a beach.
Other beaches, however, do not have piers. Some beaches, on the other hand, have a dock for the status quo. I am sure you know what exactly what I am talking about. I have seen it all and will be spilling out the beans in the tell-tale. Or should I say I cannot wait to write all about it?
The point often overlooked is the various activities that are held from beaches? A fresh example that sprung into my head is none other than the ‘Air Festival Show’. The Air Show is popularly held by the Bournemouth beach every summer time. Thousand and thousands of people worldwide flock to the Bournemouth beach to witness the joyous displays.
Some people appreciate beaches as an exclusive venue for gatherings or celebrations (weddings or birthday venue). Sometimes people just select beaches as a perfect spot for their favourite hobbies. Speedboats and divers cannot be forgotten.
The majority of beaches expressively host various form of water-sports or competitions such as swimming. Nearby rivers are famous for kayaking, canoeing competitions or community clubs. That is many things to do. People do not precisely have to pack their bags and fly to an abroad destination? There are so many WOW things that are equivalent if not better enjoyed locally. It is not all about flying for hours in pursuit of a trendy time away. I firmly believe happiness is within us. Individuals choose to use what is already in or around them to produce a by-product called ‘HAPPINESS’.
Being Open Minded
Ok, I hear some of you right now saying, it is not everyone blessed with beaches on their doorsteps. Of course, that is definitely true but remember ‘variety is the spice of life’. It is equally important to realise that instead of having beaches around, other options can be an alternative. An open mind towards life is healthy. On the positive side, it could be the admiration of forests, mountainous places, Towns centres, galleries, etc. There are hundreds of amusements out there that people need to invest an interest in. Nevertheless, if one does not live near a beach, rather substitute a beach with an alternative amusing ‘naturabilia’. Love life the way you can possibly imagine.
Wherever you live, there is a way somehow to come face to face with historic nature-turned into amusement. In other words, appreciating things like wildlife in Zoos, landmark house or museums must not be forgotten. Most noteworthy, I once lived in the great capital city of London. London is renown for having many different types of museums and galleries. Similarly is where you live or at least near where you live. The Russell Cotes Gallery and Museum tops the list for me.
To all those of you feeling my burning passion, how about we stay in touch by all means. I will reveal to you especially the mighty wonders of Dorset in pockets full of my blog post. Sightseeing in various beaches will include rocks, fossils and features that make Dorset a place of global importance.
