A little rain never hurt anyone...



Oh I do like to be beside the sea side... however yesterday was probably not the best day to insist on visiting the beach at Weston-super-mare, but I just had it in my head that I wanted to see the sea! When we arrived it was absolutely pouring with rain so we sheltered inside the Amusements at the end of the pier. Amusements is an understatement really, as they have a whole theme park, complete with proper rides in there! It was all a bit much and not really what we were in the mood for - although I was tempted to go on the Ghost Train. Luckily by the time we'd eaten some Fish & Chips in the car (that great British tradition) the rain had stopped and we were able to have a nice walk along the other side of the beach.

As everything was so grey and dreary anyway I thought it was a perfect time to play with the monochrome settings on my camera. I like that things don't seem to look so miserable in black & white. The tide was so far out yesterday, actually much further than than it appears in the photos, that in the end I didn't even get to see a single wave but we had a lovely time none the less.
