As it is cold, grey and raining hard today, I thought I would post some photos of holidays when the sun was always shining!
This is my Mother, sister and me, on a beach in East Anglia, in 1949! We all wore bathing hats then, and swimming costumes tended to be navy blue and robust!
This one must be about the same sort of time, but it is at Cromer, in Norfolk. Holidaymakers then had to return to their Boarding Houses for lunch, so there was a huge exodus from the beach round about 12.30. Cromer has fairly high cliffs, so there was a long trudge up a sloping path to the top. You can see the old fashioned dresses, and prams. I don't know if it will enlarge if you click it.
This is Cromer again, only in February, about 10 or so years ago. There was a lovely pier with a theatre at the end, where typical seaside shows were put on.
Up to the more or less present, Moel-y-don, on Anglesey, Wales, overlooking the Menai Straits.
One of my favourite places - Humphrey Head, on the Lake District side of Moreover Bay.
Menorca, one of the Balearic Islands belonging to Spain. Lovely place, warm and friendly
And lastly, Rudyard Lake, near Leek, in Staffordshire. Not very far from us, and we really must go again when Spring comes. There are lovely walks along the lake, in the woods, boats to watch and a cafe that does gorgeous bacon baps!
