Views into the English Channel
Jurassic Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Southwestern part of England. It spans for 95 miles from East Devon to Dorset. We can view rock formation from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous times. People can sometimes find fossilised remains of various creatures in the rocks. . . This part of Jurassic Coast is known as Durdle Door. Durdle comes from the Old English word "thirl" (to pierce/to drill) which originated from "thyrel" (hole). The "Door" part seems to originate from the modern word, referring to the shape of the rock here - basically looks like a door made of a hole in the rock. . . Durdle Door is only about 35mnts walk from Lulworth Cove - as long as you don't stop every 5mnts to take photo.. which is highly likely thanks to the beautiful view 😄 #jurassiccoast #durdledoor #dorset #visitdorset #england #englishchannel #englishcoastline #gadisgeeksUKadventure #wheninUK #nofilter #instabritain
I was talking to someone about the campaign last week and as she said the word ‘endometriosis’, she lowered her voice. I smiled and pointed this out to her. She smiled back in realisation. But it’s true. So many things are hushed words. I certainly wasn’t hushing when I was walking the streets. At this busy crossing, a lady to my left asked me what this was about, as well as pointing out I must be cold. I reassured her that I was not cold and told her about endometriosis and gave her a paper slip with the campaign details. It was a busy noisy street so I definitely didn’t hush. And in my campaign, I’ve realised how totally un-embarrassed I’ve become about talking about it. Importantly, I am unashamed. Because there is nothing to be ashamed of. Absolutely nothing. Nothing in talking about endometriosis. Nothing about how I look. And nothing about donning a swimsuit and going to the water. So if something isn’t quite right with your health, whatever it is, please speak to someone about it. There is no shame in looking after yourself. It is something to celebrate. It’s been a busy couple of weeks at work so I haven’t been around as much but I can confirm, we’re still hoping and #waitingforthecall...
