Pagham, blowing away the cobwebs

There's nothing quite like a fresh sea breeze for blowing away the cobwebs is there? Last week Stuart and I gathered up his grandson (wellies, Shrek, teddy et al!) and set off to Pagham, just outside Chichester on the south coast. We'd booked a few days at a caravan park with the idea of enjoying the fresh air, before the Autumn chills made caravan living too impractical.

We haven't visited this area before so after a couple of hours' drive, it was a pleasant surprise to discover an immaculate park situated beside a peaceful nature reserve, complete with its own lagoon and close to a beautiful pebble beach! We spent a wonderful week in the great outdoors, walking, playing ball games and skimming stones during the day, then playing with jigsaw puzzles, snap cards and colouring books in the evenings ... who said kids need to be entertained with computer games and fancy electronics? It's so not true!

Needless to say, I've taken hundreds of photographs, far too many for the blog, so here are just a few to give you a taste of that tangy September sea air ...


  1. looks like it was a fabulous week , I can almost breathe the sea air from the photos :) Catherine x

  2. Looks like a great time was had by all. Don't you just love the English seaside when the weather behaves itself!

  3. Yeah I agree, there are some great areas of the UK to be found, especially near caravan parks it seems. There are without doubt more caravan parks popping up aswell, and I think with the credit crunch at the moment they are becoming ever more popular with people who want a great budget holiday. I've just recently come back from Kiln Park in Pembrokeshire. My husband and our 3 kids spent a week on the haven park in August and enjoyed every minute of it, right down from the caravan itself to the surrounding areas of coastline that you can sit or walk along for hours. Who needs to go abroad when you have something like this in the UK? Especially when the weather is stunning!

  4. Nothing like the sea air breeze to relax and make you feel good.

    Looks like you had a fabulous week away.

    Hugs Carolyn

  5. I'm so pleased you enjoyed sharing the photos of Pagham ... we had such a lovely time out in the fresh air with the little 'un. This week the weather has changed to dark grey skies and heavy rain here in Kent - looks like we chose exactly the right week to take our break! Melissa, as you say, England can be beautiful in the sunshine!
