Lifestyle: Seaside at Sunset

There’s few things I love more in life than a stroll by the sea. Despite living as far away from the coast as is physically possible in the UK, I love the peacefulness of it, the sound of the waves crashing in.

Opening towards the end of my second year, I finally managed to introduce Will to one of my favourite places. A bargain compared to London prices, they offer a large pork brioche roll, sauce, topping (black pudding for both of us!) and crackling for £5. Their scotch eggs look pretty awesome too!

Whitstable is a ten-drive drive from our house, it’s a lovely seaside town during the day. And turns out it’s stunning at night too. My housemates and I decided to head out and blow away the cobwebs for a few hours, managing to catch the sunset whilst we were at it.

We managed to pick such a perfect night to do this. It wasn’t too cold, the sunset was absolutely stunning, and the sea was so still. It was probably one of the last beautiful evenings of the year too, if the last few weeks is anything to go by.

It was the perfect antidote to a long day of studying – turns out I had definitely forgotten a lot of maths over my year out!

Are you a fan of the seaside? What do you do to relax after a hard day?

  • I’m getting homesick reading this haha, I miss Pork&Co and The Neptune is one of my favourite pubs to drink at in Whitstable! Your photos of the sunset are absolutely beautiful 🙂 xx

      Cheeky question – anywhere you really recommend in Canterbury? Wanting to go out for a nice meal around my birthday next week! x

      • Not cheeky at all haha, don’t worry! There’s a lovely Italian restaurant in Castle Street called Pinocchio’s – their food is delicious and I believe they make everything fresh, so they’d probably be good with your tomato allergy. They’ve always been very helpful with my brother’s allergies 🙂 xx
