A nice day out at the seaside. On Bank Holiday Friday (just a normal day off for me). So yes, driving down the M5, only main road into Devon and Cornwall from the Midlands, is of course going to be a pleasant experience. Hmmm. But we had snacks, music, sunshine and chat, so who cares if it takes 20 minutes or two hours?
Cheltenham is lacking a beach, or indeed any kind of water type stuff, so I wanted to escape the town for a bit and get some sea air. Google tells me the nearest beach to Chelts is Clevedon, so that’s where we headed. Fairly cute little village, with a small pier and stony beach. Just what the doctor ordered.
