We were stuck queues leaving Ladram Bay and it was only after 10 minutes or so did we see the reason for the hold-up. A mobile home on a low-loader coming the other way.
As we drove back to Durdle Door along the A35 we came to Tolpuddle. We diverted off the main road and went into the village so that we could see the martyr’s tree. This site was where the six labourers met to protest at yet another cut in their pay. But in 1834 this lead to their sentencing and subsequent deportation to Australia.
We then rejoined the main road and headed back to the caravan site at Durdle Door.
Evening down by the coast
We relaxed at the camp’s bar before having something to eat.
After 8 pm we walked down to the cliff top overlooking Durdle Door.
My efforts went into trying to capture the grasses at the side of path and have them illuminated by the setting sun.
We were not the only ones taking advantage of the glorious evening light.
Then the sun set and and the moon was high in the sky.
German camping ‘bus’
As we walked back to our caravan we spotted this unusual coach We chatted top the lady sat outside. She told us that the coach had sleeping pods and comfortable seats at the front when it went to a new place to camp.
I looked Rotel up and they have been providing tours like this since 1946!
