|A seaside postcard from Ayr, Scotland|
This card was one of several linked to Robbie Burns but apart from the views contains no other information to help you date when it was taken. It looks prewar to me.
I cannot date my second card from Yorkshire either and you need good eyes to see anything on the South Bay beach.
|The Spa and South Bay, Scarborough|
I can put a rough date on the next shot taken in the 1940s, probably somewhere in Egypt during the war when the Fleet Air Arm crews were on a beach.
|Egypt (?) - 1940s|
Sorry that there have been no bathing belles to admire so far; we get a bit closer on the Adriatic coast of Montenegro.
|Beach on the isthmus to the island of Sveti Stefan - c1986|
Coming back to Cornwall all I have to show are empty beaches.
|Camel Estuary, Padstow - May 2011|
At least you can see some footprints - I wonder where Man Friday went?
|Crantock Beach, Cornwall|
That sea is waiting for the surfers to appear.
Meanwhile this little girl is counting her collection.
|Hope she hasn't lost count|
I wonder if "she sells seashells on the seashore?"
Finally here's that friendly warning that all can see.
I just wish I could remember where this was taken, I must ask my wife to jog my memory - on second thoughts, I had better not.
For more sand and sea take a trip or donkey ride to Alan's place.
