Seaside Bliss

On the way back from Latitude on Monday, my partner suggested we stopped at Southwold to see the sea. It sounded infinitely preferable to risking getting stuck in traffic – and I rarely miss an opportunity to see the sea.

Upon arrival, I was instantly charmed by the row of brightly coloured beach huts.

The golden sands cried out for sandcastles so I made a rare plastic purchase in the form of a turreted bucket.

I was more excited by my castle than an adult perhaps should be…

Better yet, my partner helped me fill the moat.

We spread the Latitude love to Southwold.

Then, it was time for fish and chips overlooking the sea

We were joined by a duck, which set a suitably surreal air for the art that was to follow on Southwold pier.

We watched the clock celebrate ‘pee-time‘ and were amused and impressed by the artist’s skill in equal measure.

I enjoyed pressing a coin and having a go on the Quick Fit Exercise Machine – a relaxing and funny experience that brough to mind Southpark with added kitsch and comfort. Sadly, the pier was closing so I couldn’t try the rest of the under the pier attractions.

If you want an idyllic seaside break, visit Southwold. It’s seaside as it used to be.
