A day trip to Burnham-on-Sea 1

Bucket and spade at the ready and we are off to the seaside. Ange and I went with Helen and Andy for a trip to Burnham on Sea.

Bill Phillips: Sand castles Peter but they fell down

Looks like the tide is out! I hope you like a long walk to the water's edge. Thanks for the Pugwash theme tune; it makes me home sick (he lied).
Bill Phillips: Who needs Oregon when you have Burnham on Sea?

Oh, de hemel is erg geweldig! A fine composition with all the diagonal ....lines! I hope the tide will soon come in!
Bill Phillips: When the tide comes in I think the beach disappears altogether

Look at the VASTNESS of it all: the sky, the concrete, your soaring talent. No wonder I'm worried...
Bill Phillips: And so you should be

Bill's chosen angle/perspective, shortly composition i s great! Chris seems to be a bit grumpy this morning, he should eat two eggs, then he may cheer up!
Bill Phillips: He is missing Astrid and Ginnie I expect
Excellent low angle Phillips
Bill Phillips: Thank you Trim

I wonder where you got that Pugwash tune from. It's quite likely that it's being played by a friend of mine, Brian Peters!
Bill Phillips: It was on youtube There were several versions as I recall

I think his record label is even 'Pugwash Records' or something like that. smile
Bill Phillips: It was a classic but wasn't that cabin boy a smug little git?

9/10 for this Bill (I never give 10). This is the finest photograph that I have ever seen of good old Burnham-on-river. Before we were married, Norma and I would go down there in my bubble car and camp at weekends. I went in the sea once (when it was in) and came out to discover my blue trunks had turned brown (no jokes please).
Bill Phillips: It isn't pretty but the fish and chips were very good.
Nothing beats a day trip to the coast, looks good Bill.
Bill Phillips: Burnham is nothing special but we went to Wells later which is!
Love that sky. We have sand on our beaches instead of cement.
Bill Phillips: This has sand too but it is rather mucky looking sand. The concrete keeps everything where it belongs!
Wonderful shot Bill and glad to see the blue
Bill Phillips: Thanks Janet smile

Great vanishing point Bill and enormous sky, I think Chris need not worry anymore!! smile
Bill Phillips: Let him carry on worrying it keeps him out of mischief
Wow, Bill, this is a real crackerjack of a shot.

Did you know that there is a place in Nova Scotia called 'Pugwash'?
Bill Phillips: LOL!!! That is wonderful, you have made my day tongue
I like the perspective Bill but I found that Burnham isn't the most inspiring of resorts, however I will follow your series with my usual avid interest.
Bill Phillips: How can you say that???? It inspired me wink
So we both have sky today, but yours has a lot of perspective. I love that view.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Sheila, I like skies
U get a sense of being pulled into the scene at some speed. Great perspective!
Bill Phillips: I see what you mean Sesan!

ADDITIONAL TRANSPORT COMMENT

The S&D used to have a a line from Highbridge to Burnham. It lost it's passenger service in the 1950s but I well remember freight trains using the line right up until the mid 60s. It features well in the film John Betjeman made circa 1963
Bill Phillips: I didn't know that, thank you for the information
Bumham is lovely! Excellent capture here! Looking forward to seeing the of your trio to Bumham on Sea. !!
Bill Phillips: Actually it isn't Sue tongue

The cricket ground seems a little unprepared, Bill...is this the secret to the Pom's recent successes...
Bill Phillips: No our secret is we finally have a decent team smile
