Just a few warmer days and already I'm thinking ahead, past Christmas, to another year at Yorke's. This will be our third in a row. It has to be one of the quietest and most beautiful parts of the world. It's not fancy; a rough and raw coastline, national park mostly, a bait shop and the one pub.
We booked a house for a week or so over new year. I'm going to up my beach game this year and invest in low deck chairs, for those afternoons in the last sunlight, my feet in the water. A week of cider and IPAs and lots of wine, some nice gin, lots of salads and of course ice creams. Early nights and early mornings, sand everywhere. Scrabble and the books we got for Christmas, yoga on the deck and twilight walks by the beach.
Just a few months now.
