Some vitamin Sea


Clevedon. Our first long trip out. This was a 160 miles round trip. The closest seaside to us landlocked Cotswoldians.

We didn’t take the motorhome as it is cheaper and greener to go by car. Quicker too. We were there in just under 2 hours. The tide was in which was a treat. We packed a picnic and ate it in the car park.
There were quite a few people strolling along the esplanade. We made our way up to Poets walk where it was quieter. It was hazy. In the distance we could see the Welsh coastline. When the tide is in, it looks further away.

It was very pleasant in the warm sunshine. 
On the way home we decided to ditch the M5 and came took the scenic route. We went up into the hills of South Gloucestershire and the towns Wotton on Edge and Tetbury. We stopped in Cirencester for some bits in Lidl. Then through the  Cotswold water park, Fairford Lechlade and home.  It felt a little strange having such a long journey. Staying local has been our new normal.. It was strangely exciting to go so far in one  day.


  1. I really like Clevedon. Before all the lockdowns we went a few times whilst visiting eldest Daughter at university in Bristol. I don't know poets walk though so that will be something to find next time. It's the perfect weather at the moment for a trip out and a picnic.

  2. What lovely views of the sea. Thank you for sharing the pictures with us all.

    God bless.

  3. I shall be going on a journey in two hours time. Tuesday is my shopping day, and I shall make a very exciting 40 Km round trip. I shall see fields, one or two buildings, and lots of tins on shelves. Life doesn't get much more exciting than that!

  4. Freedom is great, doing normal things seeing the sea, it's all good for us.
