On the beach at Weston
Yesterday I went on a jolly little outing to Weston Super Mare, a pleasant little spot some half an hour from Bristol, and probably the largest, nearest beach. It's a smart place and recently hit the headlines when its Pier burned down in about two hours in not entirely un-suspicious circumstances if you ask me.
This particular jolly was a church affair so it was me, one other chap and lots of church women, somewhat senior to me. The train was a fiver for a return ticket, so that was good, and all day long the rain held off (mostly). We walked about 4 miles which is not bad considering ages ranged from 36-81. Plenty of sea air and the obligatory lunch of fish and chips.
Here are some pics of the Pier and the sand.
And the wildlife. Wow!
