My Trip to Southwest Britain

I visited Dorset, United Kingdom in July to August 2009. I went to various towns and villages along the coast, including Swansea, Weymouth, Portland, Cerne Abbas, Lyme Regis, Dorchester, Lymington and many more. I never thought there was so much to see around the countryside. Though the weather was not perfect on many days during the trip, the coastal scenery still impressed me.

An interesting plant
Another interesting flower, I think it looked like the face of a clock. Anyone knows what this flower is called?
Ducklings resting on the road
This really shocked me. The white pillar towards the right under the tree marked one end of the river, then the river flowed onto the road onto the other end, which was under the bridge.Why did they not build a bridge for cars to cross the river?
The imposing magnificence of Corfe Castle
