I must admit I wasn’t fully anticipating the upcoming trip to Hastings’s earlier in the month. I had visions of it being cold, wet and a little drab and quickly running out of things to do and see.
I was, however looking forward to leaving my desk along with its horrible work behind for a few days and spend some quality time with the my in-laws. I ended up packing super last minute as things had caught up with me, this didn’t bode well for me as I’m quite an organised person. Not off to a great start...

When we arrives at Hastings it was so nice to be greeted with fair weather and lung full of clean, sea air.
Each morning was like summer! being greeted by bright blue and sunny skies each morning was bliss and made me feel like I really was on holiday for our little break.
Theres so much to see and do including lots of history all around which I always find interesting.

|Hastings has a lot of history but is also a large fishing town|

|Mmm fresh mussles|
|Original features still play a role in the shops keeping tradition|
I did manage to get a lovely bamboo tiki mug that didn't take up too much room to add to my collection.
