Mummy took me to the Cornerstones Writing Workshop at The Seaside Boarding House in Burton Bradstock.Simple sophistication with a maritime theme
This is the restaurant that serves really nice food. Dogs are to be seated only in the bar area but they made an exception for me!It’s cold sitting on the patio but when the sun comes out, it’s absolutely gorgeous! I really wanted to go down to the beach and play, but we had a rather busy day. Mummy, really wants to go on a whale watching california holiday soon and hopefully then I’ll have my chance to splash about!
On cold winter days, there’s a quiet library where you can sit and read.The bedrooms have views of the neighbouring fields and the seaThe bathtub was particularly useful for rinsing my muddy paws after running on the fieldsAnd where Mummy enjoyed sitting in her warm bath and looked out the window.
It’s only a short walk down to the beachOr you can walk along the cliff side (not too close to the edge)If we decide not to go to the beach, we have the nearby fields for a lovely runAnd to meet some localsWe watched the sunriseAnd the sunsets
Mummy thought it was particularly beautiful walking out into the night, listening to the waves and looking at the stars in the sky. It was an absolutely beautiful place. We will definitely return for a more relaxed stay.
During the two days we were there, I listened in on what the humans were talking about and got some tips about writing. I even met a real author! Lee Weatherly has published over 50 Young Adults/children’s books!
At day’s end, I was all tired out from the day’s events.While we took this journey so Mummy could attend Cornerstones Writing Workshop, let’s not forget that I, too am a writer. 🙂 OK, maybe just a blogger.
Thank you Cornerstones for letting me join the sessions. Actually, thank you to all the other attendees who didn’t mind having me there. I had a lot of fussing over. 🙂May’s comment: An inspiring two days. So much talent, so many stories to tell. Writing is not easy, it is pure hard work and commitment. It was also good to know you are not the only trying. It helped to meet like-minded people.
So, inspired, rejuvenated and a long list of books to read – because writers should also be readers.
Thank you to Cornerstones! You’ve been amazing in being good listeners, providing constructive comments, and most of all for taking us seriously. I cannot imagine how many people you have nurtured and helped along their journeys, probably thousands – all with a desire to write and to be published.
And as for The Seaside Boarding House, they accommodated us well. They broke their own rules for Darcy. We were allowed to dine with the rest of the group every morning and dinner.A fab place to return to – dog friendly in many sense.
