The Seaside

Rippling waves and a clear blue sea,

Donkey rides, Punch and Judy and afternoon tea,

Sandcastles, buckets, and spades & footprints in the sand,

Fortune tellers, Crazy golf, and Psalmists read your hand.

Rides on the Carousel, rollercoaster and ghost train,

The Victorian pavilion provides shelter from the rain.

Young couples walk along the pier happy and in love,

Seagulls fly majestically in the skies above.

People are open enjoying the open sea air,

An idyllic haven to seek peace when alone,

It's enjoyable with others or simply on your own.

    I actually went to the seaside with a friend a couple of months ago, coffee in Broadstairs, ice cream in Dover and there were not many people around, we had a wonderful time just walking by the seashore.

    Hello Andy,

    I"ve been to Broadstairs it has a lovely beach there. Ive been to Dover and had a walk on the lovely White Cliffs.

    I wonder when I'll get to the seaside again.
