Escape to the Coast

Sunday, 29 July 2012




We decided to take a break from all the Olympic madness and scoot down to the coast for a day. Time to slow down, breathe some sea air and enjoy the fact that summer is finally with us.  So off we went down to Camber Sands and Rye...


A picnic on the sand, then a long walk on the beach...bliss!


Watching some pretty hardcore kite flying.  I think this was the first stages of learning to kiteboard.


Then into the nearby town of Rye for a wander.
All cobbled streets and pretty cottages...



There's a small castle too.  This is 1066 country you know!


Enjoying a bit of live music...


I spotted a letter box from Victorian times - you don't often see them.








There are some pretty shops in Rye. 
I picked up a pair of lovely silver and garnet earrings for a very reasonable price.


We finished the day with tubs of locally produced ice-cream - delicious and the perfect end to the day. Forgot to take a picture, so busy was I eating it!
