Summer at Weymouth

My wife’s birthday corresponded with one of the warm weather days in August. We took the train down to Weymouth to enjoy a seaside day.

The place was heaving with people. Weymouth looked like the photos of summer beaches that newspapers used to publish back in the 1950s.

Now if you are one of the travelling folk who go to remote places you might hate this sight. I prefer quiet and peaceful myself, but here we had thousands of people just enjoying sun, sea and sand. And, hopefully, some of them bought things and put some money into Weymouth’s coffers.

It looks a merry, happy throng.

Weymouth seems to have traditional entertainments. There is a Punch and Jud

That’s a grand puppet theatre.

I used to love swingboats and there they were on Weymouth beach.

There’s a helter-skelter.

And of course there are donkey rides seen here with a new attraction beyond – the Jurassic Skyline.

There’s even a simple beach crazy golf.

Actually, these attractions were not doing a roaring trade as we passed. But then maybe many folks were having lunch.

It was definitely an experience and tomorrow I’ll describe rail journeys which, for many were not such a good experience.
