Weston-Super-Mare was very much as I had expected. It is a seaside holiday resort with a wide prom, a pier and funfairs. Fish and chips is the order of the day.
|A novel idea was to haul Thomas the Tank on the sand with a horse|
|The tide was out a long way and there is lots of mud on the beach as well as sand|
|The tide was coning in this afternoon|
|The funfair on the pier was very loud but many seemed to be enjoying it|
On the way back the railway managed a platform alteration - and there are only two platforms at Weston so there was a lot of last minute scurrying to cross over the footbridge to the other platform. The train was crowded, one woman had three small dogs with her which were fighting among themselves. She had one in a harness and she merely hauled it up off its feet out of the reach of the others.
We arrived back hot and tired but had had a great day.
