Britain’s diverse coastline, from the cliffs of Dover to the boardwalks of Brighton, will soon have a unifying element: the 2,800-mile England Coast Path. Developed in part by the governmental organization Natural England, the path aims to increase public access to the coast while also restoring landscapes, improving community connection and promoting sustainable travel. Trail segments that have opened include a 44-mile stretch in the northeast, from the River Tyne to the Northumberland coast, which is the epitome of rugged England: misty dunes, rocky headlands, wild beaches.

Our eating habits from the holidays haven’t exactly been as they should be, but we’re trying our best. On the weekend we had Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Brownie Party as well as a lot of other sweet things, so it’s not perfect, but the Châteauneuf-du-Pape has been replaced by elderflower pressé …
