Bournemouth Beach Escapade

When Richard last week said he has a conference down in Bournemouth (he work as a photographer), he asked if I’d be interested in tagging along.  The deal breaker for me was how he did mention that it was right next to a beach. Well duh I’m not exactly one to turn down an invite to the beach. As I’m so use to Brighton, a stone cobble beach it was quite a contract to find a golden sandy beach.

With this photo above you can almost imagine you’re in Miami. This is the kind of sight that greet you down at the seafront – a bay of golden sand. When we arrived it was late afternoon and bitter cold so we did a quick walk along the beach and then went to the sea life aquarium as no trip to the beach would be complete without going to a sea life aquarium (it a little tradition of ours).  This is where I made a friend with an Otter.

And a crocodile, I like to call him Snappy.

As with any trip to the beach, it wouldn’t be complete without good old Fish – well sausage and chips, we don’t eat fish.

Anyway we then went to our hotel, and slept in such a cold room. It was so cold I slept in my jacket – that how bad it was. So the next morning while Richard had to get up early for his conference, I walked into town and went for a morning hot chocolate at Costa.

Trust me that was a very much needed hot chocolate, I was frozen by that point.

Anyway I spent the morning just sitting on the beach and walking around the bay:

Around the bay there isn’t much to do, a few cafe and one amusement. I suppose it a good thing in a way as it was more peaceful and calming.

I made friend with a dog (I’m making lots of animal-related friend here):

I then went home round lunchtime as Richard conference was a two day event and he’ll be all day working, I don’t like to get in the way.

So that was my Bournemouth Beach Escapade.

    I love all the little painted huts. Bournemouth is such a pretty, picturesque place. Your animal friends are so cute! Sorry to read is was so cold though.

    It was warm when there was no cloud but once it became overcast then it was freezing. xx

    I loved the little painted hut as well, I was trying to decide which one was my favorite. xx
