"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life" - Samuel Johnson
It'll take a lot for me to be bored of London, even after living here for just shy of 5 years, there's still a lot for me to see. I plan on continuing this for a long time yet. It's always really lovely to look back at my London adventures that I've written about, and that is why I'm grateful I started my blog.
Sometimes however it is necessary to escape the hustle and bustle in search for something a little bit different. Fresh sea air. We decided to visit Worthing, on the West Sussex coast. We've done Brighton a few times before, and although BlueBird Tea is calling my name I will save that for another time. Worthing is a 1.5 hour - 2 hour journey from London by car.
I've got this thing for the seaside. I completely forget about it until I arrive at a beach and I get that warm fuzzy feeling. In particular when the sky is so blue, the sea is beautiful and the sun is shining. I grew up just 10 miles from the sea so I suppose I took my local seaside town for granted.
Anyway back to Worthing.. Imagine parking the car and walking down to a beach as stunning as this...
We sat and sunbathed on the beach for a little bit before heading to the shops to find somewhere to eat lunch. Just a short walk from the beach is the main shopping precinct with lots of shops and little cafes. We found a little sunny spot to each lunch, and were told to watch out for the seagulls. We were even given spare plates to cover our food should they swoop down, eeeek! I had my whits about me.. no seagull was getting in between my lunch and I.
We then wandered back to the pier and bought a '99. What would a trip to the seaside be without an ice cream?
Until next time sunny friends.
