Clacton-on-Sea

14055532_1259134280765544_1861691650Brīvdienas pie jūras ir daudzu, jo daudzu britu ģimeņu ikgadējais must do. Arī mums pēdējās vasaras ir izdevies pabūt šādās brīvdienās gan St Ives, Cornwall, gan šovasar Clacton on Sea, Essex. Kaut arī manu īpašo attieksmi pret Cornwall, šķiet, neviena Lielbritānijas pludmale nemainīs, tomēr šoreiz izvēlējāmies distances ziņā daudz tuvāko (3 hr brauciens ar mašīnu) un arī lētāku variantu- nedēļas nogali kempingā, bet tomēr jūras krastā. Bija gan jūras vējš un smarža, gan saulaina diena pludmalē un kempinga baseinā, gan arī apmākusies diena, kurā izmēģinājām uz vietas piedāvātās izklaides un arī atrakciju parku pilsētā. Absolūti puiku un ģimenes orientētas brīvdienas.

DSC_8949aBeach holidays are yearly Must Do for many, many British families. Last two summer we also have been one of the crowd which are aiming for holidays at the beach, near the sea. Last year we did go to St Ives, Cornwall and this year we discovered  Clacton-on-Sea, Essex . Of course, I love St Ives, I love Cornwall, seems, that it is my type of beach, my type of holiday makers around. Just love, even in the winter (we did go in 2015), but this time with baby Olivers distance and costs have been main reasons to choose something closer and cheaper, but still near the sea. Therefore Essex, therefore Clacton on Sea, which is 3 hours’ drive from us comparing with 6-8 hours on the way to St Ives depending on traffic near Bristol. Anyway, we got what we looked for – the wind, the sun and the smell of the sea, life in campsite, the good days at the beach or near the swimming pool and the grey day at the Pier Theme Park. Absolutely boys and family orientated holidays.
