Going fossil crazy in Lyme Regis

We had passed through Lyme Regis (on the Jurassic coast in Dorset) last year and the boys enjoyed the day there immensely. It helped that there was a dinosaur museum, that the area is fossil collection crazy, and that the ice cream was good too.  If you want more official info, this is what the […]
