Invasion of the Caterpillars

We went for a stroll this afternoon and found a number of exciting things in the garden. Firstly a whole heap of wild strawberries


Wimbledon would be proud of us. Definitely enough for a pavlova, perhaps not enough for a jar of jam. If we were making caterpillar jam, though, we’d probably have enough for a whole cupboard full. Everywhere we looked we saw stripy caterpillars. Gazillions of them
 I hope they are pretty once they hatch.

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside…

oh we do like to be beside the sea. Which is exactly where we were today.

We went for a stroll along Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast starting at Nstionsl Trust site Burton Bradstock. I climbed the cliff for a good view


Then I closely studied one of the thousands of hairy caterpillars that were crawling around


And then I went  for a play on the beach and in the very cold sea
