Staying with the holiday spirit, and going back to September 2011, we stayed in Shanklin in the Isle of Wight, I’ve shown you some of the “Shaklin seaweed“, and the pretty chocolate box pictures of “Shanklin old village“, but we haven’t walked along the prom yet.
You can keep an eye on the time, if you really want to, by the Shanklin clock,
and stop for refreshment or a quick game of crazy golf at the Esplanade Gardens cafe.
The lift up and down between clifftop and beach might not be quite so picturesque, but it’s very welcome, and very well used, also very reasonably priced.
There’s plenty of space for everyone on the sands though, for a gentle stroll along next to the beach huts or a game of cricket on the sand,
Plenty of space for a dad to take his son into the shallow water, even if the little boy did run back to mummy when he fell into the water and got wet.
And plenty of space for little boys of all ages to enjoy the seaside.
