DonkeysHeading out along the prom saw the donkeys on the beach. The weather the last couple of days has not been too brilliant and with far fewer kids occupying the beach these fellows have had a bit of a lazy time. Why not, they deserve carrying hordes of kids about all through the summer.
Sand BayRode out past the old pier towards Kewstoke and dropped down into Sand Bay. The bike seems to be going OK. The chain came off going up a hill but that was operator error, just have to get used to changing gear on the frame not on the handlebars. At the end of Sand Bay which is a SSSI there is this area of marshland, might get some decent bird watching in around here.
New Inn Kewstoke
As the bike seems OK, extended the ride a bit to include Kewstoke village. This is the central pub which advertises fairly cheap meals and loads of card tournaments, poker, crib etc. May be worth a viist one evening. A bit hilly is the climb through Kewstoke so a good test for the drive mechanism on the Peugot.
Temporary Lifeboat Station
The official site for the lifeboat is on the old pier which has not been used since 1996 and is a bit dilapidated to say the least. This temporary home is at the north end of the promenade.
