The melancholy of the Fleet Lagoon
When we want a peaceful walk close to our ArtPix/Arcane HQ, we head to the village of Langton Herring and its surroundings. You get some nice views over the hills towards the Hardy monument and West Dorset.
Our favourite bit is the South West Coast Path which follows the banks of the Fleet Lagoon behind Chesil Beach. It is a refuge for many species of birds and there never are many humans around.
It is a place full of quiet beauty and a pervading sense of melancholy; it suits us just fine!
The sky was quite spectacular in places and we encountered a couple of sleet showers!
The landscape at this time of year still feels wintery compared to previous years, and the rapeseed, gorse and hawthorn flowers add some welcome touches of colour.
