Beside the Seaside

It was my birthday at the weekend and I decided I would like to go to the beach for the day. Luckily the weather was warmish but a little bit windy, so we packed buckets and spades and the kids enjoyed choosing pebbles and shells and making sandcastles, whilst we sat with cups of coffee, huddling for warmth behind the windbreak! It would have been warm if it weren't so windy.

We then went for lunch at the East Beach Cafe in Rustington, which was right on the edge of the beach, about a minute's walk away. This cafe is fantastic - we discovered it last summer and it is the ideal place to stop for lunch on a day trip down to the coast. For more details, check their website on www.eastbeachcafe.co.uk Above is a photo of the inside of the cafe - notice the sculpted shape of the walls - well look at the outside below.

It is an amazing structure and the chairs inside are fab too. The food was delicious - I had grilled seafood with chips and then lemon posset for pudding, which was to die for - I got the recipe and will be making it this coming Friday for a family get together. We had a fantastic day but we were all pooped by the time we got home - must be the sea air. It was a much needed break away from the building site which is our home - not for much longer though as the builders are finishing up today and then it is down to us to decorate, pull the carpet up, clean the floor and get the furniture back in. I get the feeling this weekend will be very busy...
