Being 16 again

A few snaps from my trip to Polzeath over the bank holiday. I used to come here in the summer when I was younger and it felt strange but lovely to be back again. The view from the house was beautiful...

And it wasn't long before we all ventured down to the beach for a blustery walk

Awkward windblown selfie at the top! It was testament to a great weekend that my camera didn't make it out of the bag after the first day but there were many more beach trips and boozy dinners around this table (courtesy of a completely legitimate wine competition win - cheers Majestic!)

A wonderful weekend away from London - salty hair, sandy feet and lots of friends - always a winning combination!
