I have been sat smiling quite goofily for a little bit. I've had Blogger open for a while now, with a page ready to write a post on. My mind has been wandering, thinking about one of my favourite places. It's one of my favourite places because of memories that have been made there, because I love the place in general and because of what the place stands for in my life. These happy thoughts have made a blogger smile like a toddler and feel happy in my smile's company.
Waves crashing or waves dancing, it's one of those places where I feel at home even though it's not home. With hotels dotted around in a Monopoly-map kind of way, rain or shine, it's one of those places that feels like summer. Busy or quiet, it's one of those places that makes my heart feel so fond.
It's just one of those places that oozes only good memories- and so many of them! I've been to a lot of places I have adored (and I feel so lucky for this) but that doesn't mean that they feel anything like home. And home is a feeling I cherish so much- not that I believe "home" can only mean a place or a physical building. But this is one of those places that makes my heart feel settled when I'm there.
Bars with smiley people and restaurants with families and couples and friends dining happily, it's one of those places I like being part of- but I like to observe it too. With seaside treats never too far away and a feeling of wanderlust in my veins (even if I don't have to travel far), it's one of those magical places that just feels like a holiday.
It's one of those places I always want to know and love and visit and be in. It's charming and homely and exciting and calming. It brings me only warmth when I think about it and it brings me hope, the good kind of nostalgia and a feeling of love too.
