Beautiful Camber Sands, but where’s my vitamin D?!
I love the British seaside in winter, a bracing walk along the beach always leaves my head feeling clear. We’re off to Camber Sands tomorrow, it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK and a beach we visit often, come rain or shine.
But here’s the thing; apart from a week’s trip to France earlier this year, we haven’t been on holiday abroad since before Ma Puce was born and I am starting to crave a proper holiday in the sunsheine (Sic – to be read in style of Liam Gallagher singing circa 1994).
The recent ice cold spell, part of which we spent in the depths of Northumberland, a place that seems to know no limits when it comes to plunging temperatures, has really got to me. And now, the subzero temperatures have lifted, we are left with more than generous amounts of rain and the kind of grey, lifeless skies that drain your energy like a toddler on Haribo.
And so my thoughts are turning once more to a deliciously sunny holiday abroad. And according to recent news stories about the rubbish British summer potentially leading to an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency, which can cause rickets and is linked to various other horrible diseases including the Big C, it would seem that booking a lil holiday in the sun would also be very good for our health!
I’ve started having a little browse to see what’s out there, checking to see if there are any cheap flights or bargain packages to be had – and do you know what, I think I might have to commission a mother.wife.me study into the benefits of staring endlessly at pictures of sunny beaches online, because I am sure it must give a teeny tiny little vitamin D boost.
