ACROSS THE BORDER
Where the banned are
But at least it's the seaside! Greetings from Llandudno.
Looks lovely! Where is it?
Pittenweem. Its a lovely little village with a thriving arts scene: something of an artists colony, with a great annual festival with open studios etc. Well worth timing a visit to coincide if you enjoy that sort of thing. Also has a ‘chocolate’ cafe on the High Street. Arguably the finest chocolate brownie I’ve ever had! The orange boat unloaded crates of huge langoustines after it moved into the inner harbour. I should be working for WelcomeToFife.com!
When I was a kid, I went to the beaches of the Baltic sea and the North sea, both with beautiful white sand. Just the weather wasn't clement a lot of the time 😏
This looks not dissimilar.....Stonehaven beach (not the best picture mind).
It does look very similar and looked even more so today with grey skies!
We do have sandy beaches as well!
Waiting for the rain to stop so we can go out!!!
AJ that looks so much like the beach at my hometown. I'll try to find a picture from a similar angle when I'm on the PC rather than my phone
Coming from a land of wide sandy beaches, those pebbly British ones are pretty funny. Still, I guess when you only have two days a year of beach weather, it doesn't really matter too much...
Ah but pebbles are so much more interesting...
I remember how horrified I was when I saw Brighton "beach" the first time! And how I admired the British for serenely settling among the pepples.
@berlintramp I remember how impressed I was when I visited the beaches of Berlin. And the forests as well.
That’s really gorgeous.
I had to go to Manchester this weekend so we rented a car and decided to spend the night and do some sightseeing. I was (morbidly) curious about Blackpool, so I thought I’d go see it with my own eyes. I was amazed at how delightfully decrepit, tacky and decadent it is. I need to go back with more time to take some pictures.
Llandudno looks very different!
Try Morcambe, it's even worse! I went to Blackpool every year when my son was between the ages of 7 and 12 - he really liked it. Llandudno is a little more refined!
