J achieved on the A-Z #ntfamilychallenge – J is for JURASSIC COAST. After a few busy weekends with football presentations and such like, we were finally able to get going on furthering our A-Z Family Challenge. Keeping with our intention of the challenge being a real mix of National Trust locations with a good spread across the UK, this time it was ‘down South’ to Devon and to the coastline.
The boys and I jumped in the car and headed for Branscombe on the Jurassic Coast. 2 hours later and we arrived. Had a mooch around the Blacksmiths in the village and then off to Branscombe Beach. And what a lovely beach and fascinating coastline it is. Gently shelving towards the sea with a myriad of pebbles and stones, the beach and the light was lovely. We spent a great couple of hours playing footie, exploring the beach, having a paddle and of course, the obligatory ice cream!
The Jurassic Coast is world renowned for a reason – it was actually tricky to decide exactly where to visit with many spectacular views to choose from. But we opted for Branscombe and a great choice it was. This was our first visit to this area of Devon and like Arnie, we will definitely be back!
