This was a real, true, bonafide, genuine adventure. We got in the car, drove to a town we've never visited before, and discovered a little gem. Leigh-On-Sea really isn't terribly far away from us, but yet I've never, in all my years of living in Essex, actually been to visit. Well not anymore. And we will definitely be popping back in the spring or summer, because it is such a charming place. We want to go back and enjoy the beach and the prom, it is all so lovely.
The weather didn't really want us to have an amazing outdoorsy adventure this week. It was blowing a gale and threatening rain and snow, but luckily I'd spotted somewhere in Leigh-On-Sea that seemed worthy of a visit, a cute little donut place called Los Donuts. So we put the postcode in the satnav and went off adventuring. And it didn't disappoint.
It was a simple adventure but a really fun one. We sat together in the window, munching on delicious donuts while watching buses and cars pass, admiring the shops and then also watching the most enormous snow flakes fall, much to the children's absolute delight. It was a charming way to spend a cold, wet afternoon. We'll definitely be going back, and if you are in the area I'd definitely recommend tracking down Los Donuts for a tasty treat.

This year we are embarking on a challenge to have an adventure every single week... 52 adventures!!! They may be big excited adventures or simple ones close to home, but we want to have a 2015 full of adventures and full of amazing memories.
