Sutton on Sea

I was lucky enough to have a lovely long weekend in Sutton early May BH .   It was a very sunny but windy weekend.   Joe and I spent a great few days there.  We met up with friends on the Saturday at Anderby Creek where we sat quietly in garden have a few beers, soft drinks and lots of chat.  In the evening we joined Lyn & Tony in Skegness for an Italian meal. 



Beach Huts on the sea front at Sutton on Sea where we had many a good summer holiday when Samantha and Matthew were growing up as my mum always used to hire one as her base.


The Beach Huts at Sutton on Sea are featured in this book by Kathryn Ferry.

’Behind the enduring popularity of beach huts lies a story of classic British eccentricity. Immensely photogenic and appealing, these colourful seaside buildings are direct successors of the Georgian bathing machine, which first appeared in the 1730s as a peculiar device to protect the modesty of rich and fashionable bathe


On the Sunday Sam and Ash came for the day and we spent a few hours in Skegness as Ash had never been to this coast before.

I’ve not been blogging recently as I’ve had the most horrendous episode of tonsillitis that has lasted for what seems like forever!!! It’s been so physically debilitating.  I’m slowly on the mend now but it has left me feeling tired all the time by 2 in the afternoon I’m ready for a sleep!!!

Hope everyone else is well?

thanks for stopping by to read my blog & leaving comments

Hi Lesley
Hope you recover soon. Never been to SOS but been to Skeggy & Mablethorpe many times. Paul spent all his hold at the Miners camp when he was little. The fish and chips always taste better by the sea!
