Last week I went on a day trip to Swanage with some friends. We enjoyed a lovely day in the sunshine! a long walk around the bays and then an icecream on the seaside.
Swanage is a small coastal town in the south east of Dorset, England and is approximately 10 km south of Poole and 40 km east of Dorchester.
The town, originally a small port and fishing village flourished in the Victorian era, when it first became a significant quarrying port and later a seaside resort for the rich of the day. Today the town remains a popular tourist resort, this being the town's primary industry, with many thousands of visitors coming to the town during the peak summer season, drawn by the bay's sandy beaches and other attractions.
So my theme this week is 'By the seaside' and these are some of the lovely items I have chosen from my fellow Folksy shops.
