Welcome to the latest blog from High Tide Online Gift Store – your one stop store for Nautical, Seaside, Christmas & Countryside gifts and Nyform Trolls.
It’s been an amazing week here in South Devon, with the High Tide 25% sale, and also the temperature records that have been falling as the mercury has been rising!
Temperatures hit 30 degrees celsius, smashing all previous records. On the 29th September, a high of 27.8 degrees celsius was recorded back in 1895.
Even Hawaii, Mexico and other global hot spots were no match for seaside and nautical seekers who flocked to the coasts.
Officially though, we haven’t had an Indian summer, as it is defined as “a warm calm spell in the autumn, especially in October and November”.
In Bournemouth, tourist officials had to hire extra beach wardens to cope with the number of seaside and nautical seekers that flocked to the beaches. Over 90% of the 16,000 hotel rooms in the town had been booked out for the weekend, with queues for ice creams at the seaside running as long as peak summer levels!
However temperatures are now set to drop again, as we head towards more seasonal averages, so as we start turning our attention to Christmas shopping, if you are stuck for gift ideas, be it nautical gifts, seaside gifts, or just those small christmas stocking fillers – why not take a look?
Our 25% sale on all items, excluding Nyform Trolls is still on, so please take a look at our site and enjoy FREE UK delivery for orders of £30+ and money off vouchers for future purchases too!
