"Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play: "Tiddely-om-pom-pom!"
So last week we packed our egg sandwiches and filled a flask of tea and set off for the Bright lights on Clacton on Sea.
It's a place we would go for day trips as children and it is also a place I was thrilled to discover hasn't changed a bit.
The pier, the rides, the colours, the aroma...all exactly the same.
As if time has stood completely still.
The thrill of the 2p slot machines...
Still just as entising and as equally as exciting.
Big Bumps of Happy Fun
And sticky sweet sticks of Rock.
Collecting pretty seashells...
And building perfect sandcastles
Oh how we love to be beside the seaside...
Beside the sea.
What a jolly day was had by All.
as we spent a glorious day stepping back in time.
