‘WE DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE…’ 4th JULY 2012 – WEYMOUTH 25 DAYS BEFORE THE OLYMPICS


4th JULY 2012 WEYMOUTH –  25 DAYS BEFORE THE OLYMPIC SAILING

Weymouth beach – a huge curve of sand. In July it should be filled with happy holiday makers and the renowned sand sculptures. Olympic sailing events will be taking place right here in less than 4 weeks. But this year the dull wetness of the summer has had a dramatic effect on Weymouth’s seaside charm, as this slideshow reveals. An almost empty beach and attractions mostly closed. There’s still some enjoyable colour, but overall my half-hour wandering the beach was fairly bleak. Total of sandcastles: 2. Total people relaxing behind windbreaks: 1 brave woman. Total actually in the water: 2 0r 3 paddlers, not one swimmer… Great British Summer? Bring it on… and quick!
