Five on Friday: Beach Reads

a walk on the cliffs

Now that we’re back from our holiday, Mr T and I are planning a few camping trips to explore more of the British coastline. If you’re heading to the beach this summer, here’s a few beach inspired reads that have made me pause for thought this month:

  • I’ve been reading “No More Plastic” by Martin Dorey (who also wrote the fabulous Campervan Cookbook). A practical guide to cutting your plastic use, it’s full of quick, achievable ideas.
  • Not reading, but watching, I caught the first episode of “Beach Live” on BBC4. Presented by Dan Snow, it’s a fascinating journey along the Jurassic coast. Definitely worth looking up on iPlayer.
  • This piece from the NY Times might get you off your lounger and heading off to do a “two minute beach clean”. Do you know what the most often found piece of plastic is on the average beach?
  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! No trip to the seaside is complete without a cone of soft, dripping ice cream (or even better, heading home for a bowl of fresh, home made gelato)! This new recipe book from La Grotta ices is full of delicious recipes and flavour combinations. There’s a great review on the Happy Foodie. Written by Kitty Travers, it’s a must for ice cream lovers, check out these “sneak peek” recipes from the book in this Guardian piece.
  • Finally, if you fancy discovering a new beach get away, the Great British Beach Guide is a good place to start.

Enjoy your summer x
