Photographer's Note

Time for a conventional land- (or sea-)scape. Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England. It is privately owned by the Welds, a family who owns 12,000 acres in Dorset in the name of the Lulworth Estate. It is open to the public.

As you can see, the day was so calm, we had motor-sailed from Weymouth, and decided to drop anchor for an early lunch in the bay just out of shot to the right. Not something (or somewhere) I would normally consider safe, as prevailing winds bring up some big waves here, despite Portland Bill offering a bit of shelter from the south-west. There was hardly a ripple today, though, so we rowed ashore and sat on the beach for a picnic, had a swim and rowed back to the boat. The wind got up nicely in the afternoon to take us round to Poole. It's a tough life.
