"My" beach is the same.  Well, smaller waves most of the time, but expansive white sandy beach of joy and spectacular views, ...  I love it here!

"Your" beach is fantastic.  And so are some of the other beaches around there.  We have lots of Sandy beaches around the south coast as well. 

Nan, what's different about these beaches?  We can solve your beach related problems here.

The West Scotland beaches are amazing.

It's the vibe. That goes with the beach communities. That are not on the beaches here. Or, rather, the towns that ARE near the beaches aren't quite it. (Cue the nagchampa, wind chimes, and Beach Boys)  ;)  There's more to the beach than the sand.  8) ;) ;) ;D

How about Brighton?  That does have a bit of a vibe going on.  Sort of like the Beach Boys, but if they were gayer. 

Cornwall is full of surfers and there's supposedly a laid back beach vibe there.  I never felt it cause the beaches are too crowded to buggy on.

I've never really caught that beach vibe in Bournemouth... There are nice beaches, but it's not overly laid back! My husband's family is down there and I always visit at the wrong time to take advantage of a quiet beach.

Bournemouth would be nice for a nice long retirement before a peaceful death.

  (But I do with the EU would lift the BVO ban so I can have real Mountain Dew!)

I am sure Brexit will take care of that for you.  Soon you can have BVO and chlorinated chicken!

Not so much a fan of the US's food production practices (I love my unrefrigerated eggs and "undercooked" beef!).  But BVO is a different thing altogether... the ban makes no sense compared to so many things that are permitted here.

I've just moved to the Northwest as well (Ulverston) and am definitely feeling that in limbo visitor/resident feeling. Before I moved permanently, I was visiting my fiancé every other month so I'd spent about 6 months in the town in total before actually moving here. Which has been a great help as I already know the place in a way, but I think it'll be awhile before I feel rooted here. Penrith is lovely by the way! We scoped out a few places there for our wedding but decided it was a touch too far from our home. We're putting the deposit on a venue in Newby Bridge this Saturday.  :D

My wife recently found an older half sister she never knew existed, adopted at birth in 1949, 3 years before my wife's parents met. My wife's father had obviously had a relationship with a 19 year old girl on the next street to where he lived, he was aged 24 at the time and fresh out of the Navy. This lady has had a wonderful life, has been married 49 years herself and has children. They all live in Cornwall but moved there 52 years ago from where she and her adoptive parents lived in Manchester. She says that even though it has been 52 years since they moved she and her children, who were born in Cornwall, have always been ribbed about being outsiders.

She was absolutely delighted to see that her father was a Cornishman and comes from a long line of Cornishmen going back hundreds of years, and her credentials as a "local" are very well documented.  They found one another through DNA testing and are both delighted to have found new family members. We should be meeting her and her husband next month as we will be in Cornwall for a couple of days on our way back from the Scilly Isles.
Dual USC/UKC living in the UK since May 2016
