Happy Holidays - a Memory of Thorpeness.

My Aunty had a house right on the dunes. We stayed with her every summer until I was about 16 or 17 and a lot of our time was spent on the beach. When the tide went out there was sand beyond the shingle and we used to spend hours building sand castles, and swimming. There were always family and friends there, everyone came to Aunty Vera's house. So there was often a big group of kids and we had a whale of a time playing on the beach, cricket, rounders, boules, hide and seek in the dunes it was a great time.
