Gone Fishin’

Having moved house last week (i’m sure some of you will know how stressful that can be)…I was more than happy to leave London behind for the weekend and head to West Mersea an island near Colchester for a bit of clean living to celebrate a friends birthday!

We headed down on the Friday night after work, we blasted some absolute tunes in the car, think Dance Wiv Me – Dizzee Rascal and had a small panic about a potential flat tire!

But when we arrived we went straight to The Victory pub on the seafront and had about 8 packets of crisps for our dinner (no photos of that I am afraid)!

Saturday was pretty special though….

First of all none of us woke up till 11am, which was so nice but even better a cooked English Breakfast was already on the way…

Next on the agenda was the beach, but we couldn’t help but stop for another coffee and scone on the way 🙂

There was a delightful little antique shop next door that I couldn’t resist popping into to…

Finally we hit the beach…

We skimmed stones, breathed in the salty fresh air and bathed in the glorious English sunshine…before heading home for a typically British spot of croquet!

But the best was yet to come…earlier in the day a couple of us had gone to The Cow Shed to ironically pick up some amazing seafood…

We had a little minion in our midst too…

The night continued with Grapefruit Gin & Tonics and charade Cards Against Humanity…

I will tell you a little more about what we did on Sunday tomorrow, as I’m sure this post is getting a little too long!
