A Punch and Judy world!

This was taken at the start of my walk and is Weymouth beach in the early morning after the sand has been smoothed and before the masses arrive. Not sure if this is a high tech Punch and Judy but it appears to have CCTV installed! Still, it's good to see that some traditions live on even if it is in a wooden 'hut' and not a canvas 'tent' as it used to be in my day!

On another note, Weymouth is a sandy beach as you can see but did you know that it is only just sand? Apparently the grains here are half the size of the average sand particle and if they were just 0.09mm smaller this would be classed as a silt beach and silt is a cohesive material so it wouldn't run through your toes. That's got to be good for party conversation somewhere ;-) !
