The first full day we were here I was in a jumpy, non-beachy mood so I concentrated my efforts on cleaning out The Beach House kitchen cupboards. We had not been out here much last summer (as we had the big NYC trip) and hence the pantry had a few interesting surprises of the vintage spice/aged curry powder type. Needless to say, once I had expended all my excess energy and made enough order at The Beach House for my type A personality, I was able to relax into holiday mode. We had a gorgeous beachy morning with The Farmkids yesterday. So much easier now they can both swim!
One of my favourite things about life in a little coastal town is the "town" bit. Living on a farm our friends and neighbours are usually a decent drive away. We are lucky enough to have close friends with a beach house in the same street here and lots of other friends just a short walk away. This results in lots of wandering around drinking coffee or wine depending on the hour. Having a local fish and chip shop seems like a luxury coming from The Farm! (Although one meal of fish and chips always seems enough for a few weeks...)

So - enough smug beachiness from me for now. I will try and pop up the odd blog post whilst out here as I will hopefully have a bit more time.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Once again no huge New year's resolutions for me.
Take care wherever you are.
