Beach Hut Desirability

Beach huts have always been desirable, and those who have them, often don’t let them go. I’ve started to get to know my neighbours and I’m loving the stories I’m hearing. So much so that I plan to write a book! The reasons for spending tie at the hut vary from person to person, but the sound of the sea tends to be something that we all love.

The list of stories about beach huts for sale is endless, but one thing is certain, I’m not selling my Red Beach Hut no matter what you offer me. The positive impact it’s had on my wellbeing, my mental health, and my recovery from losing my husband to alcoholism…. well you just can’t put a price on it.

Unfortunately, these high prices have made buying a beach hut even more out of reach for many families. That’s why I will continue to open my doors and share my happy place with you with my beach hut hire options. Make it your home away from home too. Everyone deserves the chance to create memories by the seaside. ❤️

The Red Beach Hut is a Tourist Attraction in Essex

I had my first experience of people debating the Red Beach Hut as a tourist attraction in Essex. ❤️

It made me smile. I’m so grateful for my little Red happy place on the Essex coast. 

A friend from my running group sent me a screenshot of a chat in a Facebook group. The question was posed if The Red Beach Hut was a tourist attraction. The person who created the post said in all his 30 years of living in Walton-On-the-Naze….

Our little red happy place was the topic of conversation and I wasn’t the one that started it! I was so chuffed. 
Our Google Business page has the hut categorised as a Tourist Attraction. I choose that category because it seemed the best suited to me. After all, Canadians have come to see The Red Beach Hut and that makes it a tourist attraction in my books.

What else could it be? 

Accommodation? Not really because you can’t sleep in it.
A leisure facility? Not really unless lifting a cuppa or a drink counts as exercise. 

Ask any Canadian, it’s a tourist attraction for sure, after all, there are no beach huts in Canada so Canadians want to see what all the fuss is about and they do travel a long way to see it.

We also have this amazing window and we are determined to make it the most instagramable window.

After the 12th of April 2021, Make sure to take your photo in front of our window, or in the window when you hire the Red Beach Hut for the day. Use the hashtags #theredbeachhut #happyplace ❤️

Picasso Moments

I’m feeling pretty happy right now, but it’s not always been this way. I’ve been noticing that I’m feeling happy because I was not really smiled very much for the past 15 years or longer. Through my husband’s recovery from alcoholism, then our separation, then our divorce, then all the challenges in that period of time leading up to his death. And then after his loss …I lost my smile.

It’s hard. It’s really hard loving an alcoholic because there’s that part of you that hopes deep inside that things will change. Mixed in with the anger, the regret – the bundle of emotions. And in that whole bundle, happiness and joy just gets devoured. It gets forgotten.

I forgot how to smile.

There were moments of happiness. I would call them Picasso Moments, those little, little pockets where just in the moment, you wanted to capture it and frame it because it was beautiful. The Picasso Moments. I grew to look for those and enjoy them. I think that was probably the first step that I took over all those years, just looking for little moments that could make me smile, making a conscious choice to look for them despite all of the chaos that was going on around me.

When all of the guilt, the doubt, the insecurities, the anger, the regret, the sadness. That was all bundled inside of me. But now I’m smiling. And this is a real smile. It’s not just one for the camera. This is real. And I’ve been feeling this way for weeks now. And that all happened during the pandemic, during the lockdown, when I was forced to slow down and all these things that I thought about doing, I actually started thinking and I started making some changes, making some different choices, things that I normally do.

I’m putting myself first and actually choosing to look for joy in life, bring it back into my life again.

Then somewhere along the way it all changed. And I can tell you exactly when that moment was. And it was at that moment where something happened to make me feel it was okay to let go, let go of the past, to let go of all those emotions, all those hard memories. They kept pulling me back. I was able to let go and move forward. Blossome has come from this is that desire to help more people feel this way and find that smile again because you can, and you will. It’s in there and through blossom bottle, through my blog, through my podcasts and hopefully my writings one day through a book. And through speaking, I hope to share with you my story and the things that I’ve done that I’ve learned to do along the way to find this smile again because you can too. You might not feel like it right now. You can. I promise you, you can. And I hope to be the one that’s able to help you because it’s wonderful. I hope to help people blossom again, open up to joy and get that smile back.

It can all start with taking a day to do noting at all, at The Red Beach Hut. Go on, hire the beach hut. ❤️

The Red Beach Hut Stories that make you smile

I’m rather excited to be writing this first article. More of a note really, a promise to myself. A promise to make time for the things that bring out this smile.

It’s during time spent at the beach hut that I listen more carefully to those inner callings, the whispers that evoke the tingle of something new.

I seem to hear them more clearly when I escape to The Red Beach Hut.

It is my little escape.

My happy place.

A place to switch off from the noise of life.

A place to close my eyes and remember my hopes and dreams.

A place where I can see my wishes come to life, in my thoughts.

A place where I can plan.

A place that lifts my spirits.

The place the helps me heal as I remember the lost love, the life that didn’t quite unfold the way I had hoped and planned for.

The beach hut is going to be play place to explore my inner callings, the desire to do something different, to write, to explore, and most importantly to find joy and express this joy through Red Beach Hut stories. Sounds simple enough. Certainly sounds enjoyable.

It’s time that I got started. Time to stop talking about it and to just do it. You can do it too, when you hire The Red Beach Hut.

I look forward to sharing some stories, memories, thoughts and discoveries, exploring the Walton On-the -Naze with you and opening up to joy.

It’s going to be fun. ❤️
