Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I hope you are starting to get in the mood and feel all festive. Incase you’re struggling then I thought I’d share with you some of Paul’s brilliant photography of our weekend by the seaside in the New Forest last week.

The New Forest is an absolutely stunning part of the world and I would recommend a visit to anyone, particularly at this time of year. This time we visited the quaint town of Lymington for their Christmas tree festival and to have a look around their shops. It’s absolutely perfect for Christmas shopping their; packed full of independent gifty shops and places where you can pick up something unique, as well as lovely cafes and a cute little harbour. It’s also really picturesque as you can see.


The next morning the sky cleared and we heading down to one of my favourite stretches of coastline in the UK; Friars Cliff (also called Avon Beach I think). For December is was unseasonably warm and the sun was so bright – we actually sat outside to drink our hot chocolates. We walked all the way along this gorgeous beach and got some lovely photographs. The pastel beach huts are my favourite part!


Beautiful! Well worth a visit. If you want to read more about what the New Forest has to offer click here.
