A Guide to the Jurassic Coast

After taking a little road trip down to the Jurassic Coast last weekend, I'm quite convinced that either a) England's Ministry of Tourism is really dropping the ball in the marketing department  or b) the entire country is purposefully keeping this place a secret so they can have it to themselves. I can't say I blame them. However, I am so pleased a visiting friend discovered the Jurassic Coast on an official inventory of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty during some pre-travel Googling and proposed that we go. About a three hour car trip from London, the Jurassic Coast is a stunning ninety-five mile stretch of the craggy southern edge of England. We made the jaunt down and, after lunch at a local farm shop, enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the pebbly beaches of Durdle Door. As evening fell we stumbled upon Lulworth Cove, with it's picture-perfect sailboats and thatched roofed cottages. The perfect day ended with an obligatory ice cream/sorbet  stop in a nearby village and plans for our next coastal getaway.
