We celebrated the 4th of July by heading to the beach. Mr. Michie has never been to Brighton and it has been many, many moons, since I was last there myself. It’s only about an hour outside of London, so it’s a nice outing on the train. We went to the Royal Pavilion, which is such a fascinating building and lavishly decorated in Oriental decor. We did a spot of shopping in the Lanes and stopped to snack on a sausage and mustard roll.
We walked along the water, strolled to the end of the pier, ate scampi and chips, ice cream, played crazy golf, and visited the aquarium. Which is the world’s oldest operating aquarium and still retains it’s gorgeous victorian gothic structure inside.
We came home feeling like we had just been on a mini vacation. What a treat!
Just a bit of last minute pin-inspiration for the 4th tomorrow!
1. Fourth of July Ice-Cream Sandwiches, Say Yes

I hope you are eating with family and friends, munching on burgers, or BBQ with your Mom’s macaroni salad and there is a lot of homemade ice cream being churned on the front porch for dessert!

It was a lovely sunny 4th of July weekend here! I put on my new Cath Kidston skirt and the sweet little moccasins he surprised me with and went out on a date with Mr. Michie.
(P.S. My skirt was ironed, but I started doing things around the house and got it crinkly before we left, so please excuse the crinkles)
