After an epic 9 hour journey down to Dorset, that included the worst queues I've ever seen on the A303 and an overheated and smoking van, we collapsed at our favourite B&B overlooking Chesil Beach!
The next morning we began the task of hauling all our boxes and furniture up the stairs onto the 2nd floor of the gorgeous old building.
After a lot of unpacking and deciding what goes where, everything is now in place and awaiting some eager customers!!!
Here is rather a lot of pictures to show you our set-up!
|Finally arrived at wonderful West Bay!|
|The ArtPix Battlebus, that didn't like the lengthy queues on the A303!!|
