Came to Camber

No blog yesterday as I was so busy.  I met my sister Abi and her family for lunch in the market and when I got home my wonderful friends from Leicestershire were here for the weekend.  That makes me very happy.

This morning I made a green smoothie which they dutifully tried but it did get a thumbs down – too avocadoey and bananaey apparently.  Oh, well, more for me.  So I had lots of green smoothie and my visitors had egg and bacon so we were all happy.

We then headed to Camber.  It was Patch’s first ever trip to the beach and he loved it.  He dug holes,

ran miles and splashed through the water.

So did Harvey and it really was not as warm as Harvey may make it appear!

Check out how warmly dressed everyone else is :-).

After collecting shells, playing with seaweed

and building sandcastles,

we clambered up the sand dunes.

Some clambered up and down. And up and down over and over again.

I preferred to stand and admire the view.  WOW, it is so beautiful here.

Hard to believe this amazing beach is just 35 minutes from my house.  How lucky I am.  Then we headed round the corner to Rye which is a delightful and very ancient town.  We had lunch in a cafe.  I had some chips, which is unusual for me but these ones were thin and crispy so worth it

followed by a very good Stilton and bacon salad.


We then walked over to the church

and climbed up the tower.  Along a narrow corridor

and up several ladders past the 8 large bells

and we came out on top of the tower where we could admire the stunning views.

Some of these building are 15th Century.  I suspect these beautiful rooves have been redone though since they were first built!

It is a long way down so not for the faint heated.

After a lovely afternoon in Rye we headed home for tea, brownies and the Grand National and then a dog walk.  In the evening the men were sent out foraging and have just returned with …… curry!  So we are relaxing, eating and knocking back slowly sipping the orange and damson gin which is most quaffable.  Have a good evening!


About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    What a lovely day you have had. I love your camber sands pics, will have to remember that as a location for a photo shoot xxxx

    • We should meet there one sunny day for a picnic and a play on the beach and in the dunes. Let’s go before May so the dogs can come too. It is perfect for photos, as is Dungeness, another place to meet at and amazing for photography.
