Last Thursday in Weymouth ( a week ago now!) we got the bus across the causeway to Portland to have lunch at the Cove House Inn - special of hake with chorizo, spinach and mushrooms was delicious. Rather more tranquil scenes to when we visited in February (below)!
A few days after we visited in February there were monumental waves that engulfed the pub ( below image from news item). As it happened during our visit this time the pub was covered in scaffolding and they were just putting the finishing touches to new storm shutters.
beer festival - lovely to see the tall ship 'Pelican' in the harbour. Our favourite was GIPA from Gyle 59.
Then after lunch at the Ship we caught the 5pm train home - a bit tiring but it meant I could go to the Quilters Guild Regional day in Vauxhall the following day ( talks by Linda Seward and Liz Trenow about their books )
