It's a lovely warm day today and we decided to go in the car and take Tilly for a walk on the beach but things didn't quite go to plan. We thought we'd start off with a walk on the new shorter pier which opened back in July. The decorative panels are lovely and have been successfully refurbished from the original derelict pier which had been demolished..
On the way home I called for a bit of grocery shopping and took the opportunity to take a photo of the new shop selling merchandise for the upcoming television programme from the castle. I didn't go inside as nothing they sell would appeal to me and I don't need any T-shirts or mugs or need to sit on the throne but I will definitely watch the show again this year.
