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!

Excellent! You not only managed to get a nice beach day in but that photo booth you tried was actually a time machine!

I know Weston is rather bathed in faded glory , a little behiind the times etc but surely it is a little further forward than the triasic period? Or were you 'walking with dinosaurs'?!
