Situated along the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Weymouth is a large resort town in Dorset. It took us about 3 hours from Bristol to reach the place. From Weymouth town centre we made our way to Nothe Park. Once there, we scanned the park for a suitable picnic spot.
We were lucky to find a secluded spot, with ample shade and a scenic view.

We immediately set up camp. Sebenarnya kat park ni tak boleh camping (Kui! Kui! Kui!) but our argument was: as a precaution in case it rains. Showers were predicted that day ... honest!

Alhamdulillah, there wasn't a single raindrop. The weather was perfect and the kids especially, had a good time. Bersukaria sebelum puasa ... :)
Later in the afternoon, we were joined by 3 more families. I guess everybody wanted to spend the last weekend we had before fasting, somewhere :).
Nothe Park would have made a great camp site. Nothe Fort, the beach and the pier were just within walking distance. Other facilities include parking space, a WOC, barbecue pits and a few food stalls.
Squirrels roamed the area freely and 'lovebirds' unabashingly making out in the open air :)!

Flora and fauna beckoned the discerning photographer....
Verdict: The beauty of the place is worth the trip! (Crabbing tah ke mana ... Kui!Kui!Kui!). Hope to visit this place again, some day! :D
