Top 10 Thursday!

I have been spending most weekends at the beach and have decided that today’s Top 10 should be inspired by things I love about the beach or seaside!  As usual these are in no particular order

·         Sea salted air

·         Sand between my toes

·         The sound of the waves

·         Finding treasures like seashells, pebbles and sea glass

·         Ice-cream

·         Walks on the beach

·         Paddling

·         Watching the sunset

·         Reconnecting with nature

·         Fish and chips on the way home

Over the past month, my partner and I have been spending many of our weekends in Brean.  Our friends have a static caravan down there and we have been going down to spend time with them as well as to have some time away from the house.  We have been staying in Pontins, which, if you look on-line has quite a few bad reviews regarding cleanliness and other issues.  We haven’t had a bad experience there, and though the complex is dated (like something straight out of the 70’s or Hi-De-Hi!) it has been clean and tidy.  We don’t spend much time at the complex, its really just a place to sleep and have a quick shower in the morning as there are so many things to do in Brean itself.

Brean is a typical seaside town, with lots of gift shops selling holiday reminders such as magnets, postcards and sticks of rock, beach accessories like buckets, spades and inflatables,  several static caravan sites, pubs, restaurants and gaming arcades, not to mention a fairground and, of course, the beach itself.  There is also a market over the weekend with a lovely selection of stalls selling all manner of things.

Over the time we have been going to Brean we have spent days on the beach having bbq’s or going for walks, days in the arcades playing games, spent time at our friends van, having food in the restaurants or being out in the bars.  Every time we have been down we have had a completely different experience and a different kind of holiday which has kept each weekend feeling like a totally different holiday!

What have you all been up to?
