So we had the best New Year ever! My dad, step mum and her parents (and two dogs!) came for the weekend to celebrate new year. It’s also my step mum’s birthday on New Years Eve so double celebrations. SM has always wanted to go to Mersea island so I told dad about the Little Beach Hut Company on Mersea and we rented their cute little Bertie for New Year’s Day as a birthday surprise.
The hut was small but well equipped and we were able to make bacon sandwiches and tea for 6 as soon as we got there. The weather held all morning and we took a lesisurely stroll down the beach, past the old oyster beds and into mariner. The beach was the busiest we had ever seen it and it was lovely to take the dogs! We met so many Christmas puppies too!
Walking up the beach is obviously good for you because I was in bed by 9.30 last night and my legs are a bit achey this morning! Incidentally we received Little Beach Hut gift vouchers with afternoon tea for Christmas from M’s mum and dad! So we’ll be back soon!
We were also given an early wedding anniversary gift.. it’s a beautiful jar filled with pebbles and confetti from outside of the venue on our big day! Such a good idea and so beautiful!
