It was very busy there today, and I got a shock as its £5 per car to get on the beach.
I would suggest when you drive onto the beach turn left and keep going right up to the barriers where you cant go any further and claim that corner, you will not get a good speck if left too late :wink:

Oh toilets at the beach entrance and they are clean to start but minging by the end of the day.
There are burger vans and a mobile shop.
Strict rules apply for driving and speed and the Wardens patrol and the police are patrolling on quads :wink:

Got back at 20 past six - not bad, since we left at five to four and I stopped for fuel and later a McD and covered 104 miles. Sunburn is setting in though, - might regret it in the morning :oops:

I must say though chaps, it was great to have a casual chat with your all. Not a bad venue for a meet in the fresh air (just thankfull those RC's buggered off).

Image
Yes, we were at the seaside :D

Image
and the sun was shining.

Image
There was industry in the horizon

Image
and a pantomime dog on the beach

Image
although there was a normal, allbeit excitable, dog there as well.

Image

Gratuitous Pose #1

Image
Gratuitous Pose #2

Image
Gratuitous Pose #3

Poses #2 & #3, along with sensible dog, are available here, here and here in hi-res unwatermarked splender (I'll remove them next weekend though)

A cracking day out.

Cheers
Lawrence
