The camera was a bit on the blink when we went here so sorry about the quality of the pictures. But I thought it was still worth putting up because this is such a splendid place, a vast repository for pensioners and families, perched atop the promenade.
Ah, industrial tea. You can't beat it.
How many millions of happy cups of tea must these little pots have served. Warm and worn.
All the sandwiches present and correct. Cheese. Ham. Cheese and ham. But look at that tempting cakery. Must have some of those.
But these huge rows of comfy chairs are the best bit. Long rows facing out to sea and sunshine. Obviously in a lot of demand, so the pensioners develop clinical expertise in sensing what sets of chairs are about to come free. They can read the signals of coming and going in much the same way fishermen intuit the movements of the tide and the schooling of the fish.
Must go back here with a functional camera.
