We came back from holiday and shortly after went off to the South coast of England for a couple of days. The way there on the road was pretty boring. It was only when we got nearer the coast in the late afternoon that the scenery became more interesting.If you look closely, there’s a little windmill on the hill to the left of centre. I absolutely love the UK countryside!Gris de Tourterelle Lindy 30 was the perfect travel and walking everywhere bag. I took the straw hat (ASOS) with high hopes. I’ve had it for a while unused because the last couple of Summers have been a total wash out. Travel outfit. Seaside bound. I tried to think about something other than white but in the end the Gap 1969 legging jeans still won. The plimsoles are by H&M Girls. I pack my lingerie inside a bag and them there – makes the ‘smalls’ much easier to find whether you bother to unpack or not at your destination.I also packed a quilted jackt with hood, the black pair of linen mix pants, skirt, a couple of dresses, tees, jumpers plus sandals and a few bits of jewellery. You never know with British weather and the seaside.I assumed these were bf jeans but got a shock when I read the label on the inside waistband: Leggings. They’re over a year old and I’m making up for not wearing them last year. The light Gap Petite top was perfect with them. This old stripe knitted jacket by Banana Republic has proved increasingly useful every year at home and for this quick get away. It’s made me appreciate all the more when something fits so well.
This was the ambience of the bar/lounge/restaurant/dining area.My Tween remarked that she thought it felt like Ikea …I changed into the Mango textured dress from here.Lindy tried her best to nestle on the sofa.Our first dinner at the hotel starting with pain-beurre! I would have been most happy with this as my supper although my waistline would not!Caesar salad. I always ask for the dressing on the side so as to avoid being served drowned salad 🙂Toasted sandwich served with crisps. Tuna mayo with cheese baguette.A selection of 3 mini pies with fries. A classic burger. Chocolate fondue fruit salad. Their version of an Eaton Mess. Tween (in the background) loved it.
The standard room was so small it was just as well we weren’t any taller or wider 🙂
More next week – thanks for reading!
