On the Cob


“It is only when our characters and events begin to disobey us that they begin to live.” John Fowles.

It was a cold, grey, October morning in Lyme Regis harbour,


but the dogs and I strolled along anyway.


They weren’t too sure about these wobbly steps


but we enjoyed the hazy view from the top


This is the famous Cob at Lyme Regis, as seen in the movie The French Lieutenant’s Woman,  from the book by John Fowles. I’ve been up there in much worse weather and it isn’t for the faint hearted, I definitely wouldn’t want a long heavy cloak swirling around my ankles in the wind as Meryl Streep did!

Jackie at A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales invited me to join in a share of three favourite quotes. This is one of the ones I had over my desk, to inspire me, when I was studying creative writing.

I’m not going to ask anyone to take part, just anyone who wants to!


The Sunday Post: Famous Movies

Jake this is so hard this week!

You haven’t quite beat me though, my photo was taken on the Cobb at Lyme Regis in Dorset where in the film, The French Lieutenants Woman, played by Meryl Streep is seen standing in her cloak. I love Lyme but I’m afraid my photo doesn’t have the same romance.

Jake requested an article about the chosen film so here is quite an amusing one. Sharon if you haven’t read the book you  might enjoy!
