To celebrate mothers day and a rare blanket of blue sky we headed to the picturesque seaside town of Lyme Regis in Dorset. Famous for it's jurassic coast line, Lyme Regis provides more than just glorious ocean views and irresistible fish and chips on the beach. It is also home to a thriving hub of unique, one-of-a-kind shops. I have been buying crystals from one particular shop since I was a child, and along with it's million year old fossils it's the perfect place to pick up a real treasure of a souvenir. Further along the narrow paths lined with pastel pink and blue houses live the most charming antique shops, local art and crafts studios and chocolate box boutiques that sell everything from nautical apparel to precious trinkets that leave you feeling blessed to have stumbled upon them.
