Being near water is relaxing and good for our souls, the benefit of living on a narrowboat affords this luxury ever day. You can’t beat the beach for some real positive vibes. There’s nothing like the wind blasting away the cobwebs as you walk along the damp spongy sand with the clouds streaking the blue skies above. To celebrate the 84th birthday of Mr F’s Mum, we had a family day out to the lovely northern coastal town of Lytham St Annes and hired a beach hut for the day. Chips, tea, cake, sand inbetween our toes. Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.
