A weekend away in Clacton-On-Sea

It’s already been several months since our trip to Bluestone and my husband and I were wanting a little mini break. As my brother lives down in Clacton-On-Sea and had space to put us up, we decided we’d make a weekend of it and travel down late on Friday when Thomas finished work. I used to live near Clacton-On-Sea but I haven’t been back for quite a few years now, and so I wanted to see if it was still the same!

Anyway, these are my preferred ways of keeping Daisy happy on holiday!
