spontaneous day out!

A lovely day out!

(sorry, that's my finger in the way!)

Em and i decided to pop down to Bournemouth last week - i can't remember the last time i went there - probably a few years ago! the reason why? well Em wanted to drive down with me in the car with her as she was going to a concert - the Prodigy- and was worried about finding her way! So we did a dummy run - good excuse really! I don't know why we don't go there more often - out of season its just lovely - easy to park, whole beach to ourselves - as you can see!

To say that it was windy was an understatement - bracing, certainly! But it was fantastic, just to listen to the waves and smell the salt air - however it was freezing!! Definitely blew the cobwebs away!!

We then had a bit of retail therapy and a lovely lunch! It was only a short break but definitely just what was needed!

Oh Maria, you've brought back lots of lovely memories for me. Bournemouth is where we used to spend our holidays when I was a little girl!!! Course, it was a lot warmer when we went he he he.

The beach is wonter is absolutely magical - as long as you have the right clothes! My parents live near Eastbourne and I'm sure we'll be blowing away the cobwebs sometime over half term.
