To celebrate the warmest day of the year I thought I would give you the "Great British seaside." Taken on a spring day that may have been the warmest day of the year, but, warm it wasn't! Still the sun was shining and for the British to take over the seaside the only requirement is sun - we have no expectations when it comes to temperature! I have been meaning to try and grab a few candid shots with the SWC for a while, so was happy with this. It does kinda capture what the seaside is like here. Of course, my statement is something of a contradiction as this is Weston-super-Mare. Situated not on a real coast but that of the Bristol Channel which basically means it is the River Severn. The Severn has the second highest tide anywhere in the world - this means most of the time there is no sea for the seaside, just mud. I seem to have spend large parts of my childhood wondering when the sea might make an appearance!Here is an aerial view of Weston-Super-Mare.

I dream things that never were and say why not."

Has anyone here seen my friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
You know, he freed a lot of people
but the good, they die young, yeah.
I just looked around and he was gone.
