Our holiday in Dorset – West Bay, Durdle door and Corfe castle

Now, we are talking about the last part of our Dorset holiday.

On the fifth day, we went to West Bay to experience “Broadchurch”.

さて、ドーセットホリデーも終わりに近づいてきました。5日目はウェストベイへ、ドラマ「Broadchurch」で有名な絶壁を見に。

We got out of the car and wandered around the harbour and then we finally saw this!!

じゃーん! テレビで見るのとおんなじ~。

It was the same as the one we’d watched on the telly.  Of course, we had to pose for daddy.

Then, we decided to walk up to the top.  It was quite steep, you see.  Daddy and Silky went up easily but mummy is scared of heights so I had to look after her not to fall.

で、やはり登れるところには登っておかなくてはということでチャレンジ。これが結構急で、高所恐怖症の私は四つ這い+小走りで。母は足を手術したので下で見学。下の方の黒い点、母です。

Here we are!! We are on top of the world!!

そして頂上。絶景。鳥が目の前を飛んでました。

We saw the house where Alex lives.   In the drama the house is located somewhere very quiet but in the real life it was by some busy road.

On the last day, we said bye-bye to our lovely cottage and headed to Durdle Door which is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast.

最終日、コテージにバイバイしてまずはダードゥルドアへ。これはドーセットのジュラシックコースト沿いにある自然に出来たアーチ。

The view from there was breathtakingly wonderful.  You just have to see them for yourself but not everyone can go there so we will show daddy’s photos.

どこから見ても景色は素晴らしかったです。言葉では表現出来ないのでダディの写真をどうぞ見てください。

The last place to visit was Corfe castle.
Daddy parked his BMW in a parking space where you can park only two hours.
Can we come back in 2 hours, daddy?

その後はコーフ城遺跡を見に。駐車情が一杯なので道路沿いにあったパーキングスペースに。でもこれ、二時間まで。

We had a lunch-lunch at a cafe and then visited this pretty model village.
We visited the real size of this little church later,

違反取られるかどうか、運試しということでまずはランチを食べてモデルビレッジ見学。後ろ側の建物は教会の模型。家路に付く前に立ち寄りました。

and this is the miniature Corfe castle.

そしてこれはコーフ城の原型。こんな形だったんだぁ。

Mummy enjoyed torturing me, and then

中世の拷問を経験して、さてコーフ城遺跡へ。

we walked towards the real Corfe castle to feel its history.
Yes, we are feeling it!!  We are the kings of the castle!

IMG_0347 (800x641)

威厳あるわぁ~。11世紀に建てられたそうです。

The castle was built in 11th century.  The scale and the strength of the castle….woof….it was amazing.

Silly daddy told mummy to support the wall to protect from further damage.

DSCF8421 (800x533)

こーんなに斜めになっても頑張ってる。スケールと言い強さと言い、凄すぎる。

From the castle you can see the whole village.

DSCF8436 (800x533)

お城は小さな町を見下ろしていたのですね。詳しい歴史を読むと面白いです。興味ある方は文中のCorfe Casleをクリックしてみてください。

We fully enjoyed the castle and then came back to daddy’s car.
Oops….daddy got a parking ticket.  Dammit!!

IMG_0359 (600x800)

いや~、楽しかったなぁと戻ってくると、駐車違反のチケットが。あーあー。でも楽しかったからいいや~。ドーセットはとても良かったです。もっと見たいところがあるからまた行こうね、Coco、シルキー。

Still, Dorset was fun.  We love Dorset.
We will go to Dorset again, won’t we, daddy?  Please, daddy.

Coco and Silky
