I am always very relieved when the clocks go forward and the past couple of days the Hosier Clan have been enjoying the weather forecast being wrong and the bright sunshine we have had rather than the predicted rain. Last night we had our first sundowners at Evening Hill. This is a beautiful viewpoint overlooking Poole Harbour and a great place to sit and drink hot chocolate as the sun dips below the hills.
Today we had a fantastic walk from Swanage to Dancing Ledge. We saw three adders out enjoying the sun. Two of them were at Tilly Whim caves, which is a well known snake-spotting-spot. The third was further along the coast path, and I managed to pick him up, which amused the children (although not my wife). Everything had that "first really sunny day of spring" feel about it, with life practically oozing out of every plant. The smell of the freshly sprouting nettles was so intoxicating that all the kids tried eating some, and didn't even get too stung in the process!
We have also had the perverse pleasure of getting into conversation with holiday makers and, to their question of where we are from, smugly responding with "We live here."
Its tough in Dorset!
