Last weekend I took myself off to Bournemouth for the weekend to spend some time with one of my best friends and her little boy.
In short, I had an amazing couple of days in the sunshine and ate and drank a bit too much (sorry slimming world!!)
On the Saturday we visited Upton Country Park, where my friends little boy could run around and let off some steam, cause boy does this little lad have some energy!
Whilst we were there we stopped at the little tea rooms and had some lunch and cake!!
The gardens were so lovely, with all the flowers starting to show themselves and the smells that were coming from some of them were divine!
There was a wedding just about to take place, with guests arriving whilst we were there, and what a lovely venue and day to get married.
Once we were all puffed out, we headed back to the house to sit in the garden and enjoy the rest of the sunshine, which may have involved a bottle of wine and some chips and dips!!
On Sunday, we decided to hit the beach. The wind was quite strong, so our original plan of going to Hengistbury Head were put on the back burner, and instead we headed to Southbourne.
It was fairly lively down there, with people trying to make the most of the glorious sunshine. I love the beach here, and these beach huts are just beautiful!
Having strolled along the beach and collected various shells for, oh all of about 10 minutes, lunch decided to call. We stopped off at Cafe Riva, which is always my go to cafe when I am in Southbourne. Right on the top of the zig zag which takes you down to the beach, it offers great food and some amazing views.
It was nearing the end of the day and time for me to head back to Birmingham. I don’t know why I don’t visit more often, and will definitely be going down again in the School Holidays.
Where is your favourite place for a weekend away?
