I asked if she would be kind enough to guest post for me, and as so many ex-pat Brits (but not me this year) make a hasty exit from Cyprus during August I thought I'd see if she could find me a little bit of my old home.
I'll hand you over to Photopuddle.....
When Emma asked me to do a guest post for her I was thrilled as I love reading her blog. She’s asked me to show you a picture which says “English Summer”.
I wanted to use one of my own photos and it was actually really hard to decide on which one. I was very close to using one I took of tea and scones but I thought that might be a little stereotypical. I also thought about using one I’d taken in
Brighton as I just love taking photos there. And of course I could have used one of my little girl splashing in puddles as this summer has seen rather too much rain for my liking. England
In the end I opted for this one. It’s one I took on the beach at
West Wittering in last summer and I love it. I think it really does say English summer. You don’t get beach huts quite like that anywhere else and this one is so pretty. The beach is beautiful too. So many beaches in the South East are pebbly so it’s lovely to discover one that’s sandy. It’s not that pebbly beaches aren’t beautiful because they are, but it’s just the nicest feeling being barefoot on a sandy beach. Sussex
And what I think most sums up the British summer here is that it doesn’t look like it’s a blistering hot day – it’s just a nice, pleasant day. So many British summers are simply warm rather than hot, hot, hot. And you know what, that’s just perfect.
