We have had another grey washed out week here! I know what people say about England being rainy but this is super bad for a British Summertime! I literally have not been able to go out once this week to truly enjoy the outdoors because of the bad weather. Anyway, to try to give myself a lift I sifter through some pictures from early spring this year when my boyfriend and I and one of our dogs took a day trip to the coast on a wonderfully sunny day. We decided to go to Maldon on the Essex coast and work our way up to Mersey Island a little further north. The sun was warm and the beautiful colours of early spring made us truly optimistic for the seasons lying ahead after the long cold winter!
