Taking A Stroll Around Shotley Marina & OOTD

Do you have those places where you use to visit often when you were younger, and when you visit them now you have a flashback of memories?.
Well Shotley is one of those places for me. Many times I use to visit here with my family. Although theres not much to do, it's still a lovely place to visit.
It use to be a Royal Navy training establishment where my great grandad used to teach rigging to the trainee sailors.
We decided to take our 15 month old wolfhound Dodger for his first visit. It was his first car journey which lasted longer than 10 minutes. He did cry for a little bit, but mum was in the back feeding him treats and settling him down. We had to stop for a wee break (Dodger not us...) and got back in the car. All in all it took us half an hour to get there and Dodger was such a good boy.
Dodger loved being let of the lead and being able to run up and down, by the waters edge and smelling all the new smells.
He unexpectedly decided to take a dip in the water but I'll let him explain his version of events in another post.
Even though you've got the bustling Port Of Felixstowe just across the water, there was still a stillness in the air. That was until we were walking back. The weather decided to change and the wind picked up. Then the heavens opened and we got soaked. So what better way to stop and warm up, is with a hot chocolate topped with cream and marshmallows. I should of got a picture to show you but I was so excited to drink it, I forgot and drank it straight away. But after the crazy rain, it did leave a beautiful rainbow.

I have wanted a camel coloured coat like this for ages, so when I saw this one in a next outlet with my boyfriend I fell in love. He very kindly bought it for me as one of my Christmas presents and I haven't taken it off!
