The Great British Seaside

Last year one of my favourite things I did was launch the Seaside Series on my blog. Not only did it encapsulate everything I love about British summer, but also meant that I truly made the most of longer days, and if I was lucky, warmer weather too.

As much as I love foreign travel, there really is something about the comfort of travelling at home- and a visit to the seaside in summer encapsulates that perfectly (rain, wind, seagulls and all).

Ticking off Rye, Penzance and St Ives (as well as some other favourites)- Joe and I were lucky enough to see a few of the U.K’s prettiest corners last summer- proving you really don’t need a passport to travel somewhere beautiful.

Unfortunately, this year we’ve been a little less hot off the mark in terms of travel (still plotting a summer get away if we can)- but jumped at the chance to visit one of our favourite spots along the Kent coast when Barbour got in touch about their #BarbourSummer series.

Now, I won’t spoil too much here (as we’ve already popped together a little post for the Barbour site which you can see here)- but wanted to share some of the pictures from our visit, as they just so happen to be some of my favourites we’ve taken. Arriving at 6pm, we couldn’t have been luckier with the early evening sunshine and balmy warm evening- and spent the next 3 hours (before Love Island, naturally) snapping away alongside the sea and waiting for the final golden moments of sunset.

Walking along the coast with Maggie watching the sun go down already goes down as one of my favourite summer memories- and it’s only encouraged us to properly sit down and map out some of our future visits across the country- so all suggestions come welcomed. I hope you love these pictures as much as we loved taking them- they truly captured the essence of an evening at the sea- I just wish you could capture the smell of fish and chips too!

Thank you Barbour for a gorgeous trip! Head here for more…
