Birthday at the beach...

As it was my birthday on Monday, the LAB and I decided to make a weekend of it after the wedding celebrations. After a wonderful brunch cooked by my son and new daughter-in-law we headed for Uppark in the South Downs of West Sussex - more on that later. The day was glorious, even though autumn is waiting in the wings.... I was craving salty air and sand between my toes (basically our Sydney life!) Teaser for Thursday - at which exotic beach destination do you think I took this? (We didn't get on any planes & don't forget we live in England!)

White powdery sand, sun drenched beach grasses and bleached to pale gorgeousness beach huts.......answer tomorrow!..........s


  1. Oh Susie, Happy belated Birthday, that gorgeous picture must have been taken somewhere on the West Sussex coast, however most of the beaches there are shingle, it looks more like Saunton Sands, I am stumped!

    Loved the previous post too, so glad you got to celebrate. All your hard work and running about paid off, the cake arrangement looked beautiful and scrumptious!

  2. Dearest Susie
    Happy Birthday for last Monday!!!!! Hope this year is filled with nothing but joy .. happiness.. and beach days!!!

    Spring here so I can't wait for the beach weather... Now I have no idea where this beach is but the white fluffy sand sure looks like Sydney..

    Have a great week!!!! xxxx Julie

  3. West Wittering! I may be wrong but it certainly sounds very similar! You probably know WW - it is our favourite place in the whole world and we have spent so many happy days there with the family and now even though they are all grown up they still consider a day there with us all together the most magical of times!

  4. Susie...Happy Birthday!! Your a Virgo!! Why am I not surprised??
    What a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday...your pictures are lovely. The weather has been fantastic this week!

    I finally posted my trip to Bath..thanks again, your suggestions made all the difference and we really and truly appreciated them!!

  5. I don't know where it is but it looks devine,
    I love white sand that squeeks when you walk on it.
    your Daughter in law is so beautiful and that dress, wow.

  6. Happy Birthday Susie!! Goodness, in between wedding celebrations and birthday's you've been a busy girl. I don't know where this beach is, but it looks just gorgeous. I thought it was a painting when I first saw it on my sidebar. Hope you are loving life in your cosy corner of the world. Meredy xo.
