Seaside Rock

We managed a rare night away without the kids this weekend (thanks Mum). We took a trip to Worthing as my fella had a gig there at a punk all-dayer. We stayed at the adequate if dull Travelodge, which is right on the seafront and had the added benefit of being only 50 yards from the gig venue. In all honesty this was the only 50 yards of Worthing we saw, tho luckily it included the promenade and pier. Lovely bit of traditional British seaside-ness, complete with nasty concrete multi-story car parks and an air of nostalgia. Beer, noisy punk rock, chips and a stroll along the prom – what more can you ask for from a night out? Here are some pics…

After a brief wander we head bar-wards and there we stay, apart from a chip accompanied pier tour. The band play, we all drink and the world is put to rights and wrongs. My later photos bear all the signs of a drunk person in charge of a camera they barely understand who thinks that NOW is a good time to put it onto manual settings. When will they invent the ability to take photos with your eyes by blinking in the right way? Can’t be far off surely? Mind you, after several shandies no doubt my eye photos would have been blurry too…

Sunday was a bit grey, but Monday morning was gloriously sunny and a quick wander on the prom helped the hangovers slightly (thank heavens for sunglasses).

Then back in the car for a moderately torturous journey home through heavy traffic. Being sat in a traffic jam is tedious, but is one of the few times I realise just how many people there are out there, living their lives. All of us sat in our little tin boxes, going nowhere fast, snoozing, bickering, singing along to whatever gets us going. “Where are they all going?” I wonder. “Why are they all going somewhere at the same time as me?” I bemoan. Service station sandwich punctuated hours finally give way to the first sight of our town through the windscreen. Home. Hoo-bloody-rah!

How was your weekend?

    Ooh a weekend without the kids sounds heavenly and it looks like you had a great night. I love spending a bit of time in traditional seaside towns every now and then but it is always good to go home

    oh i do love a seaside visit although never been one for knowing about visiting rock bands while there

    I’m constantly amazed that there are so many people on the move at any given time! Bank holiday traffic is a real downer but not bad enough to fully detract from a break away. I love your photos of Worthing, they look so retro.

    I absolutely love that photo of the beach and the sky and the grass. I’m glad you had a good weekend – apart from the traffic on the way home. My weekend was mostly shopping with the kids for things they needed and then packing for a trip which was cancelled!

    Glad you had a good weekend. Love the idea of being able to take photos with your eyes alone. Mine would be so much better that way!

    I spent most of my childhood in Worthing and my school was very central. Have to admit I prefer the beaches of Bournemouth but I do get wistful about my old home town. Glad you had a fabulous break away xx

    We are so lucky to live by the seaside and can pop onto the beach after school and weekends. Glad you had a lovely time. Kaz x
