Summer Doldrums #BriFri
Welcome to British Isles Friday! British Isles Friday is a weekly event for sharing all things British and Irish — reviews, photos, opinions, trip reports, guides, links, resources, personal stories, interviews, and research posts. Join us each Friday to link your British and Irish themed content and to see what others have to share. The link list is at the bottom of this post. Pour a cup of tea or lift a pint and join our link party!
Last week, I reported on the easing of travel restrictions from the US to the UK. Tina appreciated the stunning twist in Watch Her Fall by Erin Kelly. Heather enjoyed the plot of Playing the Duke’s Fiancée by Amanda McCabe.
I don’t have much to write about today, so I thought I’d share the live stream from Hastings Pier. A trip to the beach is a perfect cure to the summer doldrums — even if it’s cool and rainy. In fact, I wouldn’t mind some cooling breezes and gray waves given that we’re experiencing 90 degrees, humid, and high mold counts, right now.
Where would you go in the British Isles to cure the summer doldrums?
First off, thnak you for introducing me to Elizabeth Wein’s work. I plan to gte The Verity Code soon. Loved the The Enigma Game.
Our weather has been brutally hot and we have to stay insode most afternoons. Ugh. If I could escape to England I would land in James Herriot country in Yorkshire. We just picked up the first season of the newer series and the scenery is amazing.
Oh, is that why I haven’t blogged in the last two weeks? That makes sense! Summer doldrums! I would definitely pick a grey, cloudy seaside. Maybe some Scottish isles, that sounds good.
