A Brilliant Summer and One Final Treat

This Summer really has been one of the best. We’ve  enjoyed fantastic walking weekends in the Peak District, the Lake District and  the Cotswolds (mostly in glorious sunshine). We’ve stayed at some great  campsites and explored some of England’s loveliest countryside.

Away from walking, we had a super relaxing week in  Crete, followed by a super raucous weekend at my parents’ smallholding in  Normandy celebrating my Mum’s 50th Birthday. We’ve had a christening  and a couple of weddings and spent far too much time in too many pubs. It’s been  brilliant!

But now the summer is drawing to a close and you  can feel the change in the air. The nights are drawing in and the mornings are a  little chilly. I personally love Autumn but after such a great Summer I can’t  help feeling a little bit deflated. So we decided that we needed something to  look forward to.

For a while we’ve talked about doing a coastal  walk, however living in landlocked Northampton doesn’t make it very easy to  escape to the sea! After much deliberating we’ve decided to head to Southwold in  a couple of weeks. As it’s a bit cooler now, and we’re wimps, we’re leaving our  trusty tent behind and treating ourselves to a couple of nights in a B&B.  We’re hoping to combine our love of walking with good ales and fine food  (especially fish and seafood). I can’t wait, it seems very fitting to be seeing  2013 out with one final treat before we start planning next year’s  adventures!
