Summer is starting to feel a bit autumn-around-the-edges over here. If you haven’t made it to the coast, now is probably the time to do it!
Last month we visited Wells-Next-the-Sea with some friends. (The wind was relentless, so all of these were snapped from my phone…) It claims to be distinct for its colorful beach huts, but I have never visited another place with such vast expanses of sand! (The tide is very dramatic in these parts, it seems.)
The water in the small river that cuts through the beach is Oh! so cold, but a two-year-old won’t admit it. No matter how miserable he looks playing in it.
It’s quite a schlep to get to that pool of water from the boardwalk. A stroller is pointless, a pack mule may be essential.
The beach is located about a mile from the town. A miniature railway parallel the walkway between the two. Guess how our two-year-old preferred to get there? The town offers all the ice cream, fish & chips and crabbing supplies you need – plus, a very fun pirate ship playground! – to make it a lovely
9and exhausting!) day at the seaside.
