The Beginning

Spring is full of new beginnings. The sun has woken up after its long Winter sleep, daffodils are blooming, there are fluffy ducklings gliding down the rivers and woolly lambs playing in the fields.  All in all, it feels like the perfect time to start a brand new blog!

I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I always seem to get itchy feet around this time of year. As the world around me opens up and blossoms, I start to feel this overwhelming urge to get out there and explore it.

Recently, my husband Mike and I decided to do just that, and so we jumped into the car and took a drive down to the Kent coast, not far from where we live. As is often the case with these drives of ours, we had no fixed destination in mind. Sometimes, half the fun of a Sunday outing is in the drive. With the sun warming your face through the windscreen, the radio on and your loved one by your side, what more do you need?

Well, of course, after a while, you start to need coffee, and this is generally when we stop.

On this occasion, we ended up in a little spot called St Margaret's Bay, where we were greeted by this rather lovely view.
As we later discovered, these white chalk cliffs are the first place in England to be hit by the sun as it rises each morning. How romantic is that?

We found a pub called The Coastguard nearby. It has a pretty terrace overlooking the bay, so we chose a sunny spot and sat sipping coffee to our hearts' content, watching the sun sparkling on the water.

We hadn't been to this area before, but we will certainly go back. Here's hoping there's plenty more sunshine and alfresco coffees to come over the next few months, and lots more adventures too.
