I have just returned from 2 weeks in the lovely seaside town of Exmouth, spent with Mark and my family and I can honestly say it was lovely. it wasn't anything fancy but I have returned refreshed and rejuvenated from my
enforced ban break from the internet and some rather yummy food! I didn't do much but potter around [I am a young granny after all!] but I did manage to snap a few pictures! I know seaside holidays aren't to everybody's taste but I was raised on them and I don't think they can be beaten. The weather was lovely and I was able to potter around town in the charity shops and then down to the beach for a quick swim too...bliss!
Georgian rose tea in Topsham.
Fish Medley Platter.
Chocolate and strawberry roulade.
The gorgeous Georgian tearooms in Topsham.
A charity fete at a local nursing home [yes I'm cool] with fresh fruit, jams and flowers.
Feast ice-creams, classic holiday fare.
Exmouth Marina and a future holiday home?
Posing in the park after having my hair cut.
Colourful beach-huts and moody skies.
Footprints in the sand.
A colourful signpost.
The tearooms again!
A giant papier mache lion at the nursing home (I don't know why either but I wanted to bring him home...)
A cheesy pose from Mark.
Exmouth clock tower.
Unfortunately it was over far too quickly and I am already missing the smell of the sea and all of that clotted cream... I dread to think how much weight I have put on but if you can't enjoy yourself on holiday, when can you?! I was a little sad and nostalgic as it reminded me of all of the holidays we used to go on as children with my grandparents but this will probably be one of the last times we all go together as a family. At least I have the memories and the sand in my shoes to remind me!
Do you like seaside holidays? What would your perfect holiday entail?
P.S. I am looking for people to guest post towards the end of the month as I am off to Italy for a week to celebrate my parent's 25th wedding anniversary, so if you are interested, PLEASE give me a shout! :)
