STOP PRESS :- Some of you may not have received the photo for Neversaurus, three posts ago. That has now been sorted.
More Street Art
Next to Birnbeck Pier, which a staunch group of local people are campaigning to stop it falling into the sea, a group of artists have covered some fence panels in street art and have raised money towards the Save the Pier fund. This one is a bit enigmatic, it seems to accuse Banksy of making a lot of money out of Dismaland, but the figures don't add up at 4000 people a day, at £3 a head, for 4 weeks. Take off the cost of setting it up would never make a profit of £43M.
Not really an island any more, just flats and a little cafe. The causeway was built during the hey day of the Victorians, trapping the sea to form the Marine Lake.
The New Castle tea rooms.
After a spin around Sand Bay, called in at this tea rooms in Kewstoke. Very swish inside, in fact the sign outside boasts good coffee and a wine bar. Encouraged by the decent sized bike rack that cyclists wanting a cuppa would be welcome, I went in and had a cup of tea. A bit pricey but a very clean place and a little bit upmarket. Not much point going in with just over 4 miles to get home but curiosity got the better of me at a cost of £1.75.
The new tyre is much better and did a fraction under 13 miles.
