Home At Last

I can’t believe we are home in Canada. It feels very surreal and bizarre so I won’t write about that yet!

Given the -30 weather we’ve come back to I prefer to talk about our last lovely few days in the UK. We finally got down to Dorset to visit Lady Fia’s cousins. We stayed in Corfe one night which was absolutely lovely. The National Trust castle dates back to William the Conqueror…

Fia’s Aunty and Uncle live further towards the coast and we had the perfect two day visit.

Another day we spent some time on the coast at a lovely town called Lyme Regis. If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that this is where I found Town Mill Bakery and died over their Eccles cakes…

On Sunday, our last full day in the UK, we went to their local beach and had a beautiful walk in the sunshine. Everyone was out in their wellies walking dogs…
