I don't know what it is about being by the sea, but it makes me calm. Last week, I headed up to North Wales to visit my sisters in a setting which used to be one of my favourite places to spend my weekends. It's funny how something can go from being a weekly routine, to something you barely remember, isn't it?
We stopped for ice cream, as is tradition, although this wasn't our usual place and it was a little disappointing, so I should have opted for coffee instead. Mint chocolate chip flavour can't be beaten, in my opinion, but this was a little grainy and I didn't really enjoy it.
A wander along the seafront in Beaumaris saw the weather take a turn for the much more sunny than I'd expected, and it was nice to wander with no real purpose. We pootled in and out of some of the shops around and snapped some photos and I think it's safe to say that I prefer seaside towns in the off-season.

I'm pretty lucky that I don't live that many hours away from the coast - an easy day trip for me. And I've no doubt I'll be there again before the year is out: nothing like a walk by the sea to clear the cobwebs from my brain.
