Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Joss Bay




Last week we had a family gathering in Broadstairs on the Kent coast. We stayed in this Lighthouse cottage which was ideal.

The lighthouse was surrounded by an acre of land. As it was  all fenced in and secure it was perfect for my 2yr old granddaughter to enjoy a sense of freedom.






Views of the sea and just a couple of minutes walk to the sandy beaches of Joss Bay.



With lots more to explore on the beach it was a wonderful few days away.

  6. It looks wonderful. I often hear of Broadstairs, seemingly punching over its weight for its size.

  9. The name reminds me a bit at the tv serie Broadchurch, is it in the same area? The lighthouse cottage looks wonderful and so nice close to the beach.

  14. What a very neat spot for a vacation! Would love to see the inside of that place.
    We are back from our two weeks in Europe. It was lovely. I've never felt so pampered as I was on that river cruise. If you do it ever, use AmaWaterways. They are superb. 6 days to the big move!
