We paid a flying visit to Swanage today. We didn’t do much more that just sit in the car and watch the sea. But, we were absolutely fine with that. You might think what a waste of a trip, why didn’t you go and look and around, and even worse, why didn’t you take any pictures? I would normally expect to at least see the seaside.
To be honest, I never even thought about taking any pictures. It kind of demonstrates our familiarity with this wonderful seaside town, we have literally spent years there. It was just so nice to revisit, and sit and contemplate without rushing around taking pictures.
We had lunch in a pub called The Silent Woman in Wareham Forest. It’s been quite a few years since I was last there. The name is a variation of the name given to the pub “The Quiet Lady” in the Thomas Hardy novel The Return of the Native. Before then, it was called The Angel. It seems to me that it was entirely sensible to change the name.
I had the smoked belly pork. It was quite simply delicious. It’s always nice to have a good pub lunch.
