The Front Parlour | Burnham-on-Sea

We found this beach out of coincidence and thought it looked nice so we spent some time resting and enjoying the sun on the sandy beach. The sand was although different from the white sandy beaches I am used to from South East Asia, this, I thought was still better than pebbles on the beach. What was weird, was that it might have been low tide and was not much water in the sea but no one was actually near the water. P tried going close to the water but it was just muddy and odd so never ventured any further. Perhaps it was one of those beaches with sinking mud that we have seen throughout this road trip. 

After enough time spending soaking up the sun, we headed to The Front Parlour which we thought looked quaint with wafting smell of a great Sunday roast. Too bad we already had a big breakfast at Dr. Fox's Tearoom in Weston-super-Mare earlier so something small in the late afternoon would have sufficed. 

Afternoon tea of scones with clotted cream and jam.

The Sommerset afternoon tea the table behind us were having looked fabulous, I wanted one too. What a bliss to have afternoon tea on the seafront after a relaxing lie down on the sandy beach. Plus, this felt so authentic. Scones with proper clotted cream and jam with tea is one of the best ways of enjoying the sun on the English coast. It was a well spent afternoon in this charming family run tearoom. The next time I come back, it will be for their famous roast.
