Next stop was Portland. A little "island" off the coast. At one time it was only connected to the mainland by Chesil beach, a long sandbar of sorts. The way to get back from Portland to the mainland was through ferry, but a road is built there now. We drove to the southernmost tip where there was a lighthouse and the stunning coastline. (The tiny blue dot in the centre of the pic is a child running around the large rocks)

Portland harbor between Portland and the main coast is one of the largest man-made harbors in the world, and will be used for the 2012 Olympics, as sailing will take place in this area.


  1. This is awesome. It's like one of those places that looks just like you'd imagine the coast should look.
