The thing about Weston Super Mare, to anyone who has been or lives there, is it really just needs to be embraced to enjoy it. It's a typical British seaside down, complete with arcades and fish and chips, donkey rides and ice cream. It may rain when you visit (it did) or be windy (it was!) and you may never actually see the sea (the tide is always so far out when we have ever been) but there is something about it that you really have to love. From garish colours, flashing lights, the smell of donuts frying and kids high on sugar, it's just one of those British seaside memories that you really have to experience at some point in your life!
We took a trip last weekend for that very reason, stopping at Papas fish and chips (we were told it was the best and it didn't disappoint) first for mushy peas (Wilf's first experience of them) and chips, washed down with a coca cola.
We took a trip to the playground after that for a run around. It really is a brilliant playground, with a splash pad for the summer and a wooden castle to run around on, as well as the usual things you'd hope to find in a park like swings, sandpits and seesaws. Tom thought it would be really funny to go on the seesaw with him and Wilf and one side and me on the other and yep..they couldn't move it..I am currently heavier than a grown man and an almost four year old..so that was fun to know ;) !
After that we had a quick go on the two penny machines in the arcade. Wilf won a minions yo-yo and stared wide eyed at all of the other games and attractions. We grabbed a ice cream from the ice cream parlour on the pier and jumped back on the train to Bristol!
we visited Weston last weekend as part of an on-going collaboration with Visit Bristol as usual all words and thoughts are my own
