SHINGLE STREET

I’ve ‘officially’ found my favourite place in the world. I’ve heard so many people speak of theirs that I always felt a little left out, not having a place to turn to that would guarantee a delighted Emily. This all changed recently when Rich and I took Fleur to Shingle Street, a teeny tiny hamlet which is quite literally a street of houses built on the shingle beach. It’s so isolated and quiet with only the odd fisherman dotted in the distance to remind you you’re not at the edge of the world. Every time we’ve visited it’s been so warm, with the sea calm beneath our toes and not a hint of a breeze. The first time I visited I was so in awe of the serenity and calm; I knew it was definitely my favourite place in all the world.

We went back today; with a picnic in tow. It was warm for hours (as per usual) and I danced around in my gingham dress in the shingle having kicked off my boots. A playlist of my favourite songs playing from my phone and tea and scones at the ready. It did sadly get a little chilly as the day went on, luckily my gloves were safely tucked in to my pocket just in case. Now we’re home, I feel on top of the world and as if I’ve had enough time away to have my faith restored in the world and all my stresses melted away. I’ll leave you today with the saccharine message etched on my flask; I’m a sucker for quotes so I hope it’ll will touch you as much as it does me every time I read it out over my lidful of tea.

‘Freedom, Harmony, Discipline. Seek Sweetness and Wisdom; Something to Love and Something to Hope For. Have Mercy, Give, Be Curious, Be Playful, Keep Looking Upwards. Let the Sun Shine in. There is Nobody like You. Be Magnificient. Everything in Moderation, including Moderation. Never Stop Learning, Co-operate and Collaborate; GROW’
