Different beach ......


Cold tootsies at the beach....

Me an' Joss at Bognor ....

It was a bit grey by the time we got to The Witterings....


But that didn't deter the great British spirit...

'It's the beginning of British Summertime ...I will enjoy myself at the beach' ...

Jim, Joss, John and I went to Bognor today and then to West Wittering, where Jim had a paddle in the sea ....How British !!..... it wasn't quite warm enough for the string vest and knotted handkerchief though ...x

Another day ...Another beach

This beach hut HAS to be mine ...!!!...I wish .... Russell Cotes Museum ...full of Victorian treasures.......... History bit ....The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum was founded by Sir Merton (1835-1921) and Lady (1835-1920) Russell-Cotes on Bournemouth’s East Cliff at the turn of the twentieth century. Apart from Sudley Art Gallery in Liverpool, the Russell-Cotes is a rare survivor as the residence of a Victorian private collector, which was purpose-designed and perpetuated as a permanent art museum. The Art Journal acknowledged that “Mr Russell-Cotes has devoted considerable time to the bringing together of probably the most notable collection of modern works of Art in the extreme south of England.” (1895, Art Journal, London: J.S Virtue & Co. Ltd., 83) These are a few of the sculptures on the railings outside the Art Gallery/Museum.... Went to Bornemouth today to the Folk Festival and had a walk along the beach and a quick scoot around Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum .......listened to Chris Wood at the Featival ...brilliant........x

Along the Prom...
