I do like to be beside the seaside......

I was surprised to see so few people on the beach today at Clevelys.
School is out & it was a really warm day 23deg with no wind, where are all the families? Is being on the beach too boring for today's kids?

Three good things:
1. We saw a great film today, The Assasins Bodyguard. It wasn't a film we had any desire to see but as sometimes happens it was a gripping, exciting sometimes funny rollacoaster chase through the streets of London & Amsterdam. Lots of use of the F word but you have to ignore that sometimes! A good mans film but we really enjoyed it.
2. Cathy has sent me some preprinted address labels for Jack, his address in Japanese & English is not easy!
3. Clean sheets.
Makes for a nice seascape shot

What a gorgeous view - and no one to see it (except us lucky 365 members!)
I remember waking up excited to go to the beach every morning all summer - the best place for kids to be!
A FAV!

Well they don't know what they missed out on... I went to the beach a few mornings ago and was surprised as to how many people were there.. horse trainers.. dog walkers.. runners .. and me photographer.. and z lone little seal playing in the surf.. and it's winter and only 8 deg then..

A lovely seaside view with all that golden sands -- I suppose families are not trusting this unsettled weather ! -- but I would love to be there shuffling my feet in the sand - I am off to Llandudno at the weekend -- si perhaps a chance there !

@farmreporter I agree Wendy, the seaside was the place of great adventure, waking up, rushing to the window to look out on the beach, wonderful times!

@julzmaioro you in NZ seem to use your beaches more than we do Julz. Our weather puts people off, they get out of the habit of using them I think.

@quietpurplehaze We are using linen sheets at the moment Hazel. Got them from Dunelm Mill. Dorma at half price & we absolutely love them, so comfortable & cool.

@beryl perhaps not Beryl but the weather forecast was really good today, I think perhaps Blackpool down the road is more popular. Have a wonderful time in Llandudno, I know you love it there.

@bkbinthecity Yes it was, just a quick iPhone shot.

A lovely image and a shame not to see more families there.

A lovely seaside view.

@dide @gijsje T was somwarm out there when we came out of the cinema, I was amazed not to se more families sitting enjoying a summer afternoon at the seaside. I think Blackpool probably had a much larger crowd.

I guess that people who are surrounded by beaches and water take them for granted while those of us that are inland spend $$ to vacation there.

@essiesue very true Sue!

super pic Pat, those skies look threatening , looks good in colour

Maybe the clouds made people think it was going to rain, so they didn't go to the beach! It's a beautiful beach!

Wonderful scene!
August 23rd, 2017

People too busy getting ready for school to start? They were here! Good to see this was a PP photo! I'll look out for that film - we love car chases too - and European ones are good to see!
August 23rd, 2017  
@maggiemae yes a really good car chase! Bit slow to get going. It really good. A fraction under two hours! Are you home?

Pat, very many thanks for your review on the book. Thought I had better just flag up that the predictive text has made 'survived' into 'survey' at the end of your post.....
August 23rd, 2017  
Good shot.
August 23rd, 2017  
@quietpurplehaze oh goodness how silly! Will alter it Hazel if I can!
August 23rd, 2017  
@quietpurplehaze I have altered it so we shall see how long it takes to change!
August 23rd, 2017  
@happypat

It's changed already Pat. Amazon are very quick off the mark and when Ian, the publisher, tells me something will be changed it's always done way before the time Amazon give.
August 23rd, 2017  
@quietpurplehaze oh good Hazel.....I should have checked it myself when they emailed me! You must have good relationships with the publisher obviously! 😀
