Last Sunday to escape London I jumped on the c2c for an hour to Thorpe Bay to meet my mum and her partner as they had been to a party there the night before. We are hoping to move to that area in the summer so it was a good opportunity to explore. Despite growing up in London, I am drawn to beaches and water so I felt quite relaxed walking along the seafront, even if the wind did play havoc with my hair!
It was a bright, sunny day which helped and lots of people were out; walking, running and riding bikes. We then walked around some of the streets which were much cleaner and quieter than where I live in London and finally enjoyed a late Sunday lunch in a traditional country pub called The Angel Inn, which structurally, dates back to 1650.
Moving there will probably be a big adjustment but I am looking forward to getting away from the stress and crowds of London and starting a new life.
