After a little drive from Swanage, I soon arrived at Bournemouth, my penultimate pier for the day. It was a sunny afternoon with fluffy clouds above the golden sands. Plenty of people were out enjoying the sunshine.
The café at the pierhead served a tasty slice of apple pie and a decent cup of tea. Lovely.
My second pier of the day was a short drive from Walton – the neighbouring seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea. The pier is somewhat shorter than Walton’s, and the indoor amusement arcade is a bit smaller – but there are a few more rides outdoors. The sun came out and there were some great clouds to be seen along the coast.
In the large restaurant at the pierhead, I chose a scone with jam to have with my tea for the cake on the pier experience here.
