I think I would have felt a bit cheated if I’d spent two weeks in California and not gone to the beach; it’s kind of top of the list when in the Golden State. But having to use public transport for everything had the tendency to make things a little difficult. Nonetheless, we were determined, so Rosa came up with the idea of going to Land’s End and checking out the Sutro Baths.

Early in the month, G and I spent an afternoon at the North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival at Holkham Hall. It was such a fun day and we tried so much amazing food. We both agreed, though, that it was a drink that stole the show – Grey Seal Coffee, to be precise. When we discovered that Grey Seal has three cafes around the north Norfolk coast we immediately planned to go to one, so with just two weeks before I left for uni we took a drive up for lunch at the Glandford Art Cafe.

I’m back! My week off unexpectedly turned into – ahem – a three week break, but with the start of a busy September Lightly We Go is back up and running three times a week with the #PrettyHealthyProject, uni advice and support and budget-friendly tourism. More than anything, I’m super excited to finally blog last month’s trip to Cornwall with G, and that’s how I’m starting off: with a tour of our beautiful Cornish holiday cottage, the Hayloft.

Ironically enough, I count myself lucky that G lives down on the Norfolk-Suffolk border, a good 40 minute drive away from me. Although it’s a pain to get to, staying at his for a few days provides a golden opportunity to explore parts of my county that I’ve never seen before, and opens the door to Suffolk and even Essex for daytrips that might otherwise be just that bit too far. He took a day off on Friday and we spent the afternoon in the charming town of Southwold on the north Suffolk coast, once home to George Orwell.
