Well this is alright. Flat, sandy beach. Bottle of something cold, but not alcoholic. Plenty of factor 30 on. A typical sea breeze tempering the heat. If I close my eyes for long enough, it could be Majorca, The Canaries or Malta.
Other convenient bits about this little bit of beach. The railway station is only 500 yards away, and there’s a restaurant where I can have my afternoon meal about 200 yards away. All I need is a sun lounger and some lovely lady to apply some factor 30 to my back. No such luck I’m afraid.
But it’s heavenly, and relatively peaceful. Just the perfect way to spend a Friday, and it’s only 80 minutes on the train from London.
