Have not actually been to Seatown before, which is located on the coast between Lyme Regis and West Bay, near Chideock. It was quite busy, being a bank holiday Sunday but the pub managed to serve food and ales fairly promptly and the quality seemed very good. I decided to switch the Ricoh GR to aperture priority as program mode seemed to err on the side of a wider aperture than I would have chosen. R0000285 For example in this sort of weather I would typically select f/11 @ 1/250s or f/8 @ 1/500s but the GR tended to favour approx f/5.6 @ 1/1000s or thereabouts. I though selecting f/8 and letting the GR select the shutter speed would make more sense. R0000286 Seatown has some good walks starting from the pub, and parking is free if you spend £20 or more at the pub, or £4 otherwise. R0000296 The coast path goes right next to the cliff, which looks in danger of collapse in places R0000318 R0000330 R0000339 R0000341 R0000343 R0000362 R0000364
