A seaside dream

Last weekend my family and I went on a little trip away to the North East coast, staying in a little coastal town called Runswick Bay.  We wanted a few days away to de-stress and relax as life in our world revolves a lot around doctors appointments and hospital visits so we deserved it! When I think about relaxing, I immediately think about being near the sea. It might be quite stereotypical to say, but I do believe that the sounds of the sea have a huge calming effect on me. It's an escape from the noise of reality into something more pure and tranquil, nobodies in a hurry and everyones simply there. 

On our trip we visited the coastal town of Staithes which is one of my Mums favourite places in the world and slowly becoming one of mine. We ambled through the Main Street passing the rows of vibrant houses that carve the way through the town. My favourite thing about Staithes is the matching bright doors and window frames that have been painted on all the houses, they add so much colour to the streets and it always makes me smile. We ate dinner in The Crab & Lobster which I would highly recommend, it's the snuggest little pub with beautiful views especially on a sunny day! We spent the afternoon wandering down the beach, taking in the stunning scenery and feeling so content with that moment. Being there made me feel quite normal again which may seem odd to hear if you don't know a lot about me. I felt less anxiety than I ever had and was so SO happy for the first time in a while. A highlight of the day was playing fetch with a pretty little Border Collie, last time we visited Staithes we had Bonnie (our dog) and it did make me feel sad that she wasn't there as she loved visiting new places. Overall the day was spent being busy doing nothing and that was perfect.

It's the days like this with the people you love the most and who love you the most that you have to cherish forever. I'm lucky to have an amazing family who I adore to spend time with no matter how old I am. This day felt like a seaside dream but I will keep the memory of how I felt for a long long time...

  1. Beautiful post Lucy, it was a joy to read your words and view your photographs. I live in the North East but don’t think I’ve been to Runswick Bay, not recently anyway. You’ve inspired me to visit for myself! It looks scenic, and very similar to Whitby. Your outfits are so lovely too. Thanks for sharing. :-) xx

  6. Sounds like such a dreamy getaway, I agree that being by the sea is the calmest place. My mum says its because "long views" give you perspective and openness (who knows if thats actually true haha). The pictures are beautiful, so vibrant and, as always, your outfit is stunning. The fact that you documented this day really encapsulates your happiness and you can look back on it on darker days :)

  7. Such cute pictures, it looks such a lovely place! I'm glad you were able to de-stress, sometimes you just need to physically get away from it all.
