Sand Sculpture Exhibition
This is a regular feature now on Weston sea front. This King Kong head is at the entrance and is viewable from the prom. Ideal to tempt kids and folk of a nervous disposition in! A bit of a taster supposedly.
With the numbers of visitors increasing rapidly as the days get warmer and longer the poor old donkeys have been brought out again. A feature of Weston since the Victorian times, would not be surprised if the donkeys hate the summer!
Found it. A tough old climb up to this point on Worlebury Hill and getting there, could not get the tower and the bike in the same shot with encroaching into the garden. A bit cheeky that so took two shots. The plaque indicates that it was first a windmill, then an observatory and now a house.
Built originally as a windmill in 1750, this building was converted to an observatory in 1876. It is now part of the private residence. It is a Grade 2 listed building but unable to find out what the tower is used for now.
Mission accomplished, despite getting a bit lost a few times. 11 miles today taking the total for the week to 119, the best so far this year.
