The husband came home from travelling for work  late last night, and we decided that today needed to be a making the most of time together sort of day.  Sunshine and warmth led to us craving sea air, so we drove the hour or so to Bracklesham bay, just outside Chichester.  It’s a pebbly beach, so perhaps not ideal for sandcastles, but there’s an excellent (though busy… Please remember to book – we didn’t and ended up having fish and chips for lunch at 2.45 in the afternoon…!) cafe called Billy’s on the Beach, serving tea, cakes, beer, coffee, sandwiches and of course fish and chips.

We had a lovely time – there’s definitely plenty of English seaside charm to be had…

Of course, Small and I couldn’t resist the chance to get our Saltwaters wet with actual salt water… Her soggy sandals are just out of shot!

She spent plenty of time choosing the perfect pebbles to bring home, and D and I were able to chill out while she played.


We’ve been to the Witterings a few times this summer, and whilst they’re beautiful, I do rather like the quieter, less crowded vibe at Bracklesham.  Where is your favourite seaside place?
