We walked up to the top of the windswept East Cliff and looked around us, my blonde little girl covering her eyes because she didn't want her photo taken. It was wonderful, and I fell in love with the place immediately.
It's a love affair that has continued ever since. I was privileged through my job to get to know the place and its people very well. I even wrote a book about it, which became a bestseller, if only in the local area.
Even now, living in the hinterland, I get anxiety attacks if I don't have a Bridport fix every now and then. It's My Kind of Town.
So I was thrilled to see this film posted on YouTube by a young Twitter friend, who obviously feels the same. Stand up and take a bow, Stephen Banks, you've captured the magical spirit of Bridport beautifully.
It's taken the local Twitter and Facebook world by storm. So I thought I'd share it with you.
That's about it.
Love Maddie x
