Our family holidays were nearly always to the South coast. The four of us would cram into an old Mini Traveller, no seatbelts, black vinyl seats that got burningly hot and stuck to your legs. My sister and I would play i-spy, sing, bicker and eat travel sweets from a tin. The highlight of the journey was being the first person to glimpse the sea.
I still get a huge amount of pleasure from this, even now. The incredible teal green of the horizon and shimmering surface of the water building anticipation and excitement of the holiday ahead. In my memory the weather was always good ...and so it should be.
