Holiday Blog Party: Monday- The British Seaside

 Welcome to my Holiday Blog Party for the online launch of Postcards and Suntan Cream!
Today we're at the British seaside, Weston-super- Mare to be exact, famous for its low tides and wide expanses of sand and mud!
As you can see the sun is at least shining, although it's a bit windy. Never mind, let's go and have a coffee.
Two of my stories are set at the seaside: Love Me Do and the title story: Postcards and Suntan Cream. Funnily enough, they are both set in the Sixties, the heyday of the British seaside holiday.
These days, Weston is on the up with its brand new Grand Pier, which even has a covered walkway so you don't get wet on the way to the amusements!
Find out if Molly wrote this in the sand!

Each day I will be blogging about one of my favourite holiday destinations which form a backdrop to my stories.
All you have to do to join in is:

  • Leave a comment on my blog
  • Write about about a favourite holiday destination on your blog
  • Give link back to my blog
On Sunday, January 13th, 2013, at 6pm GMT, I will put all the Holiday Party Bloggers' names in my sun hat, and the first out will receive a signed copy of Postcards and Suntan Cream!

So get blogging, and watch out for tomorrow's destination!


  1. I like the sound of stories set in the 60s, Jean! I'm just about to do a blog post and I'll link to your blog.

  2. Hi Jean! What a super idea and a great way to brighten up a dull winter day here in Scotland. I'll get a blog post up on my blog asap and link back to your blog. Good luck with Postcards and Suntan Cream!

  3. Thanks Rosemary and Janice! I'm looking forward to reading them:)

  4. I remember seeing the pictures in the news of the pier in Weston-super-mare burning. I think I've even seen pictures of the new one.

    My favourite holiday destination? Well that would be Scotland. Can't get enough of the place. Have loads of family and friends there... and lots of spooky old castle ruins, standing stones, and stone circles.

    1. Yes, it was pretty spectacular! Thanks you for your favourite holiday destination. To be in with a chance to win a signed copy of Postcards and Suntan Cream, you need to put it on your blog and link it to mine, but then it was late last night when you left this comment!
