My 'special' place is Caister just outside Gt Yarmouth, Norfolk.
As a baby/pre school Mum and me would spend all summer in a tiny 10 foot trailer there. Dad would come over after his working week. Mum couldn't drive so she would cycle everywhere with a baby seat on her bike. I/we had quite a few local friends there too - I still do.
Whenever I'm there now its like going home and even the locals there think my accent is 'local'.
I miss the sea and sand soooo much but since my girl left home I can find no one willing to breath the wonderful air with me, eat the freshest fish n chips and just enjoy the area that Nelson too loved so much!
Where is YOUR very special place?
