Impromptu Day Trip

On Saturday, three flatmates and I decided to make the most of our new found freedom and the sun, and took a spontaneous trip to Weston-super-Mare, about an hour long bus journey from Bristol.

We spent the afternoon wandering along the pier, finding large amounts of rock (the sweet), lying on beach, playing with frisbees/ tennis balls, and building a tunnel in the sand (credit going to two of the group who could be bothered to move). I had such a nice time, and couldn’t help saying ‘I’m so happy’ all the time! Here are a few of my favourite pictures from the day.

The sea was surprisingly warm, we had a good paddling session

Having never been to Weston-super-Mare before, I can now say I would thoroughly recommend it. The beach is big enough that even on a very sunny Saturday in June we managed to get a decent spot. There is also so much more to do, on the pier and in the Grand Pier building, plus the town has lots of little shops and some really good fish and chips!
