I really like this little shopping area because that's where I will find one of my favorite things. Can you guess?
Yes, I love carousels.
Looking down the side street, this is a great place to share a plate of fish and chips.
Then there are all the candy stores filled with freshly made candies and treats,
Don't these candy apples look amazing? What an assortment. I wouldn't know how to choose.
You can't come to a seaside town and not take home some salt water taffy.
Moving on, we come to where the town meets the sea and where we can begin walking down the Seaside Promenade. Stretching in both directions along the beach front, The Promenade is 1.5 miles long from beginning to end.

But as you begin walking you soon leave the hotels and activity behind and then, all you can hear is the sound of the waves as you walk past beautiful beachfront homes.
There are trails along the way that lead out over the grassy dunes, across the sand and down to the water.
As you can see, I love watching the seagulls.
We stopped to watch the sunset.
As the sun goes over the horizon we begin to see little bonfires sprouting up all along the shore as families gather to enjoy a summer evening on the sand.
Time to walk back up to the promenade. As day turns into night these wonderful old-fashioned lamps come on to light the way.
As this day comes to a close we are back safe and sound at the bridge by our hotel. That was a lovely long walk.
Until we meet again
