Last month, we had a very special invitation to join friends at their beach hut at beautiful Wrabness on the Essex coast. The day couldn’t have been more perfect with peerless blue skies and endless sunshine. The perfect day to venture out onto the water. This was my first time in a canoe and I loved it! Being surrounded by the heavenly blue of the water and the sky was something I’ll never forget.
Back on dry land, we took a walk along the coast path to Grayson Perry’s extraordinary ‘House for Essex’ and we all fell in love with the wildflower meadow surrounding it and loved how the colours of the house perfectly mirrored those of the summer countryside.
I love that we are all wearing hats for our expedition!
Walking through the fields along the coast, I felt like a character from a Rosamunde Pilcher novel.
These are the sort of days summer is made for: eating, drinking, walking and talking with friends and kicking your shoes off and just being.
