Today as the weather is still warm, my boyfriend and I decided to take a trip to the seaside! Does anyone else get the song “Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside” playing in their head when they hear the seaside? Just me? Today we went to Sheerness on Sea which is 1 hour 30 mins from London (plenty of time to read and blog) and only cost £15 for a return ticket. My boyfriend is a bit of a train enthusiast (more than I think he will ever admit!) so he was excited to go on the High Speed One train to Sittingbourne before changing to a “normal” train to Sheerness on Sea.
When we first arrived, of course, we headed straight to the beach! It was your typical British stone filled beach. Perfect for walking but not so great if you were hoping to sunbathe or build sandcastles! The sea looked beautiful as it shimmered in the sun. As you can see from the photo below there were also people sailing.
Of course, no beach trip is complete without discovering some pretty shells and rocks! See what I discovered in the following photos.
After we then walked through a small park with a children’s play park and lots of trees. There was this interesting painting below with a slightly grumpy looking mermaid!
Along the side of the pathway was these rocks with a carved scene on.
No day in a life post of mine is complete without a building surrounded by trees!
The high street was very quiet today being a Sunday but it is a perfect beach town. Below is the Queen Elizabeth Jubilee celebration statue covered in colourful bunting which covered the town.
There are so many stunning flowers covering the city as well.
Sheerness on Sea is a quaint little seaside town, perfect to spend a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of London.
What did you get up to this weekend?
