When on holiday after Easter, staying in Tolpuddle in Dorset, we decided one day to drive down to the coast to the famous Lulworth Cove, which according to Wikipedia is “one of the world’s finest examples” of a cove.
I have been there only once before - on my honeymoon almost 25 years ago - and my memory was certainly of seeing something quite spectacular. This time we were greeted by a cove shrouded in sea mist which was perhaps initially a little disappointing, but actually added something rather special to the atmosphere. It was perfectly calm (but then I would expect that within a cove as enclosed as this one), and quite eerie, with several boats anchored in the cove just visible, along with some birds and a few rocks.
After lunch the mist cleared somewhat, giving a more familiar “picture postcard” view, but to be honest, I preferred the mist!
