Home of the Beach Hut....

Two Tiers of Beach Huts Here...
Bournemouth really is the home of the beach hut. 
It was here on Bournemouth's seafront way back in 1909, that the first municipal beach hut was built.
That particular beach hut number 2359 is still in use, all 7ft X 7ft of it. 
Over the years beach huts have become a bit of a British Institution with an estimated 20,000 situated along the British coastline. 
Nearly 2,000 of those can be found here in Bournemouth....

A Winters Walk on the Beach...


In my opinion one of the best times of year for a walk on the beach is the winter... The sands can be deserted and your walk might well allow you to walk along the waters edge without meeting another person at all......A walk along the beach on a dull day as in the picture here can actually brighten up your day....

To Sit Awhile.....


 A seat on any walk is an open invitation to sit awhile....time to sit in silent reflection.
