Awesome old area!! So steep!!! Nice shot!!
My roots are from the UK, and I just live and love every moment when I am there.To me, this is the sort of scenery that I would die for….And I just love thatching.
Wonderful shot, that would keep you fit walking that hill everyday !
Your not wrong.
ooo such a lovely place to live! great capture Larry! (big smile)
Thank you my sweet sis.It’s one of my favourite places on the planet.
Wow Larry, thanks for uploading it for me and for the link. It is a beautiful scene and the Dorset countryside is glorious. I’m so looking forward to going back there soon. Don’t think I could walk up and down that hill every day though. lol
Oh how pretty, what a lovely street, a great shot Larry! :D
I’m loving it!! My roots go back to England and I would love to visit there to do further research – awesome shot Lar and yes, KERPLUNK!!!! :))
Oh wow Larry a great shot – I can see the little old man riding his bread bike up the hill with the Hovis in the basket on the front of it and screaming out loud on his way back down again. Whooooooo Hooooooooo or perhaps it would be; Sshhiitttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt. LOL
Ha Ha….When I was growing up in the early 50’s, I can remember we had no refrigeration, just the ice chest.And every day you had the ice man coming down the street selling blocks of ice.And also, once a week you would have the man selling freshly killed rabbits, yelling out Rabbitoooooooo Rabbitoooooooo.Those were the days my friend…..
