oh I do like to be beside the seaside

My family have an annual get together in the summer over a weekend and the favorite meeting point is the seaside, suits everyone of every age, which is a pretty big acheivement as we are quite a large clan. So, having hired a very nice beach hut for the occasion, we all turned up with more provisions to see us through at least a week and the hope and prayers that the sun would shine. There is something very comforting about the Bristish seaside, it doesn't matter that the sun isn't shining or that it's blowing a force 6 gale we still get the deck chairs out, some of us still put the swim suits on and venture into the muddy looking ocean and kites are flown. All this was done and more, sausages were cooked, tea was drunk, cake was eaten and we all took to the beach for a game of cricket when the sun finally made an appearance. A day at the seaside, who needs St Tropez, Ibizia or the likes, give me Frinton on Sea anytime.

I'm dreaming of having a small house on the beach of the ocean. Being together with Nature is the most wonderful thing.
