We went to Burnham on Sea the other day, it's our nearest seaside resort (if you can call it that!). There's a big holiday camp there, so we don't often go during the holiday season - far too busy. Even at this time of year it's still quite busy.....a different type of holidaymaker though, no families or children, just pensioners.
Which probably explains this:-
We had the beach virtually to ourselves, despite it being a warm sunny day. The high street, however, was heaving....the holidaying pensioners obviously prefer shopping to walks on the beach. Fine with us! The tide was out, it goes out a very long way.....we didn't walk to the water's edge as it gets very boggy there and it's incredibly easy to get stuck in deep mud - every year, despite there being warning signs, a few holidaymakers have to be rescued by the lifeboat people.
It was nice to get out in the fresh air for a few hours, we really must make the effort to do it more often.
