We’re lucky that we’re not far from the coast, just over an hour’s drive in several different directions will get us to a variety of lovely South East Sea sides. Our favourites though are definitely Hastings or Camber Sands way. I personally really love Whitstable because I’m all about the fish market and the cupcake shop! But it’s not really Finley friendly as it’s not a sandy beach for splashing, although he does like to see the boats.
Anyway here’s what we’ve been up to…
So we chose a few typical Tourist Spots, grabbed some lunch and then did a couple of the free museums. I’d say all in all including trains tickets (we went off peak and drove 3 stations up saving us over 20 quid) the day cost us £60 – including a couple of sneaky lagers! We also bought back some space food from the Science Museum for the kiddo.
On a sunny Monday we took Finley with my parents on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. We travelled along from Hythe to Dymchurch about 15 mins each way and he loved it. We took a picnic onto the sandy beach, went to the Funfair and played in the amusements. The weather was brilliant.

Another Sunny Day, another Sunny Beach
After Bexhill we popped along to Hastings to use up some tokens from earlier in the year. We also took some chips up on the cliffs – I love it up there. I can’t wait till Finley’s old enough and we can take him to the Smugglers Caves.
|We were lucky enough to attend a screening of Land Girls hosted by the Director David Leland. I’ve always loved this film, its so British!|
|My sister found her wedding dress and we drove like lunatics into to London to get the last one. Its gorgeous and that’s all I’m allowed to say about it!|
|We made the invitations for Finley’s 2nd birthday. Its a Gruffalo party because he is obsessed, I am so excited.|

|One weekend we actually had to get our wellies out. We jumped in muddy puddles just like ‘eppa and org ig’.|
