Autumn Lovelist

Girl About Southsea

I always love being out in the sunshine in the summer, and the longer days mean you can explore and enjoy so much more in Southsea. Then September comes, it gets a little cooler, the days start to get shorter, and from October we’re firmly in my favourite season. 

There are many reasons why I love autumn, but here are my top 4.

1. Autumn Leaves

Probably at the top of everybody’s autumn lovelist are the beautiful leaves on the trees and covering the ground below like a blanket in warm golden tones. 

2. Comfort Food

I absolutely love food, and the autumn menu changes in the local restaurants always excites me. The cosy comfort food and seasonal recipes celebrated throughout autumn make me so happy. 

3. Walks on the Beach

The beach is somewhere we like to visit all year round and in the autumn you get the perfect balance. The weather is not bitter like in winter, and the beaches aren’t too busy like in the summer. Wrapping up and walking along the beach, stopping to throw stones whilst watching the waves crash with the kids, the dog, and some coffee is a great afternoon out that we all enjoy. 

4. Countdown to Christmas

Autumn means we’re getting closer to Christmas! The Southsea Christmas lights switch-on is always towards the start of November, and is a guaranteed exciting event for the kids.
