On Friday we packed up the car and headed up the Coast - just a short car journey away, to a spot that truly takes your breath away once you navigate your way over gravel roads and winding hills.
We borrowed a friends retro caravan for the weekend, a Birthday getaway for me and my family.
The weather was beautiful, and we started each day with a swim before breakfast. The rest of the day was just spent lazing in the sun. walks along the beach, swimming, eating and running around after the boys. There were no showers and a smelly long drop loo, but when you looked at where we were and the stunning landscape around us it didn't matter at all.
The best thing is that Mr H is now a caravan convert so it looks like my dream of having a retro caravan will one day become a reality. We can't wait to go again, and hopefully next summer we will be in our own caravan in this little slice of paradise by the sea.
