A breath of sea air

A flying visit to the coast today to wave goodbye to my sister in law who has been on an extended stay from Canada. We had a very quick walk across the salt marshes in Norfolk, in a bracing wind. The skies were mean and moody, but there is always something wonderful about the east coast, even in the bleakest weather.

My sister in law collected some samphire to eat for lunch, and there were so many shells on the shore - a beachcomber's paradise! Then it was back to my other sister-in-law's holiday home, which is lovely.

She has decorated it very simply, and it's not overly beachy or coastal. She bought it as a rather unattractive pebble dashed bungalow with swirly brown carpets and she has transformed it into a beautiful house, with old fashioned roses blooming in the garden.
