Day trips and an annual holiday’s spent at the seaside were a national pastime here in the UK in days gone by.
It didn’t even matter if the weather was good it was your one chance per year to get away and you took full advantage, though some of the guest houses left much to be desired.
Spending all day on the beach, for kids it was such a treat in and out of the sea, there were fun fairs. amusement parks, Punch & Judy shows, donkey rides( I fell off).
Making sand castles on the beach, your mother going in for her yearly dip into the sea, believe it or not people actually changed into their swim wear with only a towel wrapped around them..lol.
Of course there were the post cards even if you only went for a week you sent home a card and brought back sticks of rock.
Here’s some very old postcards with a few saucy ones added.
