Rambling on . . . Time to Relax . . .

At last our final break of the year has arrived.  We head off to the coast tomorrow, and to be quite frank, I feel I really need a holiday.  I have been feeling tired and weary and a little rest and recuperation is just what the doctor ordered.

Time to relax and breathe in the bracing salty air

Brancaster Staithe

Long walks across the salt marshes

Crispy bacon, egg mayonnaise and tomato jam sandwich

Dropping in for a delicious pub lunch of crispy bacon, egg mayo and tomato jam sandwiches.


Sitting on the quayside and watching the tide come in


And maybe a spot of blackberry picking along the way.

Oh yes – definitely time for a holiday.  The weatherman says it could be a good week – let’s hope so.

As Leo Babauta says ‘It’s time to shut down’.  No computer, no household chores, no gardening – just being.  Sounds good to me.


  1. The weather does look to be picking up, you chose a good week! Relax and enjoy.

  2. That looks an idyllic spot and those sandwiches look delicious. Have a wonderful holiday.

  3. Those pub sandwiches look absolutely amazing. I hope you have a much-deserved relazing holiday :)

  11. Ah yes, just what the doctor ordered I think! Sounds divine....I'm off to the lakes for a week as well and like you could do with the fresh air to blow away away a few cobwebs. Enjoy and may the sun shine on you!xxxx

  13. Sea air and relaxation sounds wonderful. Hope you have a good break!

  14. We took a break last week. We didn't go anywhere or do much, but there was a lovely break in the routine and that was restorative. Have a great vacation Elaine!
    P.S. Tomato jam? I have heard of it before, but never tasted it. It sounds delicious!
