Catching my breath

I'm sorry, I know I've not posted for a while. I had one day between getting home from holiday before I had to sprint off to Oxford for a course for two days. We had a fab week away, we did some Christmas shopping at Clacton shopping village and at the designer outlet village near Stansted. We went metal detecting on the beach at Walton-on-the-Naze. We played bingo on Clacton pier with the caller dressed as a monk. We climbed to the top of the tower at Orford and walked around the walls of Framlingham Castle. We went swimming in the pool at the caravan site (indoor). We visited Frinton and went bird watching from the sea walls at Point Clear. We played scrabble, did jigsaws and laughed a lot.
In short we had a great time. What do you like doing best on holiday, and where is your ideal spot?

My holidays tend to be the summer visit I make to the States, so I spend my time there doing the following:
Meeting friends and family.
Vegging out watching TV.
Indulging in the snack foods/junk foods I can't find in Italy.
Working out to reduce the effects of said junk food. LOL!

I have fun, though. Glad you had a great time on your holiday - and I can't wait to see you! Ack! Just a couple of weeks, now!

I like to relax when on holiday and my ideal spot would be somewhere that had interesting attractions around to visit. Not been on one for ages, not counting the conferences.

I love being by the seaside, and my fave places are St Ives and Gwithian Towans in Cornwall. I also love the Lakes but not when it's like The Flood as it is today!

Glad you had a really lovely family time, Nell.
