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 £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………………….
