岩石拱門 Durdle Door


上次被老公抓去 Dorset 玩了幾天,出門前因未完成的工作太多,起程時不免有點心不在焉。

也算他瞭解,找了間向海,在燈塔附近的酒店停留。然後每天所到之處,都是令我迷戀的海邊和小城村鎮。到後來,不願離去的人,竟是我!

今天與大家分享這個自侏羅紀至今有1.4億年老的海灘,名字是 Durdle Door 岩石拱門。這是一個世界著名的地理奇景,它巨大的拱門形岩石, 立於侏羅紀海岸的 Swanage 和 Weymouth 之間,在 Lulworth Cove 沿岸。




海灘前泊好車後,要走好長的一段被海風括得飛沙走石的山徑下坡。



先令我屏息入目的是一個傾斜的沙灘,碧玉般翠綠的海水,世外桃園似的澄清。



再前行便隱約可見岩石拱門的外形,要步下多級石階,才到達另一邊的海灘,從那裡可以清楚看見這大自然的奇觀。




這塊在海中佇立的石頭拱門之形成,主要是由於在石灰石背後較軟的岩石被經年累月的海水侵蝕而成多個洞穴,然後小洞穴逐漸擴大而成中空拱門形岩塊。





在英國居住或訪英的朋友,有興趣去拜訪這美麗的海灘和欣賞這奇景的話,在這連結有提供一切相關的詳細資料。

海邊的週年紀念 Anniversary by the sea


 最近為了寫書和攝影的工作忙得不知時日。那天老公竟突然説要帶我去海邊玩幾天,我還以為他跟我開玩笑!


I’ve been that busy writing the book and doing photography work lately that I hadn't really been keeping track of the date. My husband suggested a trip to the seaside for a little break the other day and at first I thought he was joking!

Our children came home early to celebrate a Dragon Boat Festival dinner with us. Our son came with his girlfriend, and our daughter with her boyfriend. The four big kids all wanted to come home for the celebration food: rice dumplings, and they particularly requested the square parcel shaped one!

簡單美味清湯牛肉河粉 Simple and Delicious Beef Rice Noodles


我們大家都愛吃麵。如果你想吃得健康卻沒有很多時間下廚的話,煮麵就是最理想不過的選擇了。

可是很多時候,當肚子餓了,需要一頓簡易、美味而富營養的快餐那一刻,也不是每個人會下意識地想起要下些麵來充飢。

但為甚麼不會呢?

We're all wild about noodles. They are perfect if you are trying to eat a little more healthily but don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

However, it seems that noodles are not the first thing many people think of when they are hungry and are in need of a tasty and quick meal.

But why not?
