Yesterday was such a lovely day so we went down to the prom.
Most people were keeping their distance and we are now allowed to sit on a bench according to the policeman I spoke to the other day so we sat a we observed.
The sea was beautifully calm and several people were actually swimming.
I've never seen so many paddle boarders on the water at one time, it seems to be the new thing.
No kite surfers this time as there wasn't any wind.
A couple of swimmers just setting out and in the distance is HMS Severn a Royal Navy ship waiting offshore to sound its horns for VE day.
Apparently there were searchlights in the sky in the evening but we were not there to see them.
This picture might interest any Pink Floyd fans.
No not the old couple in pink in the foreground. lol
The building in construction in the background is being built for Dave Gilmour, him of the Pink Floyd.
A five bedroom mansion right on the seafront with soundproof rooms for playing music.
Apparently this is what it will look like when it's finished.
Who knows, I might just be able to get a snap of him sauntering along the prom one day. lol
Glad you got to enjoy such a beautiful day by the water.ReplyDelete
a lovely place to walk or sit and even more lovely to LIVE there with that viewReplyDelete
That will be some fancy mansion when completed. Nice you had a lovely visit near the water.ReplyDelete
Just another brick in the wall?ReplyDelete
It is so good to see you both, you look wonderful!!! Healthy and beautiful. We are HUGE Pink Floyd fans!! I showed this to Phil and he thought I was joking! Are you a fan? My fave is Wish You Were Here.ReplyDelete
That is a lovely photo of you both. I'm glad you were able to get out for a bit.ReplyDelete

I'm surprised to see people swimming! Is the water that warm or are they just extra-tough?!ReplyDelete
You and Tom both look great in pink.
Glad you had a chance to sit on the prom in the sunshine!ReplyDelete
They are brave swimming this early in the season.ReplyDelete
It's lovely to just sit and gaze at the sea isn't it such a simple pleasure but how we just took it for granted. xxReplyDelete
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside .... a lovely tonic, thanks for taking me along with you.ReplyDelete
The the of you are looking so good. The outdoors must have been agreeable. Nice that people are getting out and about but at a distance from each other.ReplyDelete
Pink Floyd songs have been on my mind a lot lately, especially the stuff right before Gilmore and Waters broke up. The Final Cut is my favorite album and of course The Wall. Both seem appropriate in this disturbing corona virus era. Or maybe Jimmy Buffet, wasting away in Coronaville.
Glad you are both doing well under the circumstances!
Lovely photo and you are sitting on one of my favourite seats along the seafront..although Im usually there filling my face with a choc mint ice cream from Morroccos!xxReplyDelete
They are still selling it Debi, with social distancing the queue is soooo long.Delete
Lovely smiley photo of you two.ReplyDelete
