Welcome to our beach

After a late start to the day and discovering the park was not heaving with tourists as we’d expected when we took Maggie for a walk, we ventured up to the beach.
The council has opened up the main car parks, one offering all day parking for Β£3, and whilst we haven’t walked along the High Street only driven through it, we are not sure what attractions of our small town are open.
Talking to some locals this morning they are at a loss as to why people are coming here.
We understand several cafes have opened now, but no public conveniences anywhere, especially not in shops. As for pubs, hotels and B&Bs? I don’t know.
We saw one of the biggest camper vans I’ve ever seen in the doctors surgery car park yesterday. As to whether they had been there all night is anyone’s guess, but a guy in the next road had been asked by visitors where they could pitch their tent, and a camper van has been on one of the side roads for a fortnight. By all accounts, they have permission as they live in it, though where they will be disposing their toilet waste doesn’t bear thinking about.

In all honestly, as we reached the top of the steep path up to the prom, we didn’t know what we would come across and Hubby was glad he’d taken the camera.
We were stunned.

This is a compilation of about four pictures Hubby took at 11.40 this morning.
Don’t know if it’s like that now of course………………….

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That photo is surreal. Not a soul out there. Of course as you say it may not be like that, but still …

  2. I’ve encountered similar situations here – only with traffic and a deserted Main Street instead of beautiful sand and ocean. What a lovely day you must have had enjoying the solitude in nature that way. Lucky! πŸ™‚

    That was unexpected. Definitely a camera was needed to believe what you were seeing.

    What a nice surprise! As I understand, the opening is purely economical and not based on science… Those of us cautious folks will remain distant and let the foolish run willy-nilly smack into illness. I can’t see opening the beach without opening facilities. That just invites a horrible situation!

    • The beach is open to everyone all year, but not the loos just now! I’m with you and still playing it safe. The rest can do what they like as long as they stay away from me!

    I’m so missing the beach! It was lovely to look at that picture though. I imaging our beaches are like that since you’d be arrested for putting a foot on one for the past 50 days.

    what a great shot! I wish I’m somewhere near the beach right now, I want to walk along the shore ❀
