Only 1st Sunday of April but its blooming good here in Skegness
Just got back from a stroll along the sea front here in Skegness and I must confess that even though its just the first weekend in April the signs are really good that this year will be a busy one. I cant remember seeing all our walkways so clear of sand so early in the year, I can remember last year people not happy that Lagoon walk was still blocked and thar was just a few days before Easter, I even saw the council tractor out today ( a Sunday would you believe it ) clearing sand off of North Bracing. Plenty of activity on the beach and even saw a group of brave souls going for a dip in the sea. Ice scream stalls were doing a good trade, the fun fair was bury and even the donkies were out taking happy children for a ride. Seemed like a lot of family's were taking the opportunity of a day on the coast for a Mothers Day treat. Quite a few Bikers in town (think there is a bikers weekend over at Butlins) most of them were relaxing in the sunshine by there bikes, but alas there is always one who finding the road clear from the pier to the clock tower decided to open the throttle and show off with a wheelie, only he didn't count on company so quickly as a motocycle cop pulled out of a side street as he past, well he won't be repeating that trick in a hurry again in Skegness. Everywhere elso so it was all smiles and thoughts we hope of returning again for the Easter brake.
