Chapel St.Leonards 1/5

Chapel St.Leonards is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire and is situated 5 miles (8 km) north from the resort of Skegness. The village is mainly a location for caravan park holidays, is next to several miles of beach, some of which you see here, and is close to several market towns, and the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Thanks for all your comments while we were away in a mainly dull and damp Dorset last week, I have read them all and will reply where appropriate.

I am very partial to the hardy and useful dune grass, Brian.
Brian Walbey: The dune grass seems to eb a very hardy plant all round our coast.

Judging by all the footprints, it looks very it looks very popular. From your description, I think I would not bother visiting the area.

I'm very sorry that your Dorset trip was not in the best of weather. You should have come to the Scottish islands - a week of cloudless skies and even on the few days when it did rain, it was always sunny in the afternoon.
Brian Walbey: Totally natural, not commercialised. I'm glad you had good weather, we had lovely days on Sunday and Friday, it poured non-stop all day Wednesday and the rest was dull! I did manage to take quite a few pictures at least. We spent Friday at Studland Middle Beach only to find that the NT want to raise all the buildings to the ground, including the tearoom, and re-model it in a more 'suitable' fashion, whatever that is, I signed the petition of protest against that.

Such a pity about Dorset - it is such a fine county in good weather
Brian Walbey: Sunday and Friday were brilliant so at elast we had some sun.

These east coast beaches are lovely, providing there is no howling gale coming off the sea.

Pity about the Dorset rain. I hope to saw the steam railway in action
Brian Walbey: Totally natural beach, not commercialised. We visited the railway but didn't ride, 34070 Manston was running the services and 30053 stood in the bay platform, in steam, at the head of a short rake of coaches.
Believe it or not, Brian, this reminds me of days when I visited Lake Michigan in my youth!
Brian Walbey: Glad to have recalled some memories for you Ginnie.

This could be a Dutch beach...this is so wonderful! I am sorry you did not have the weather like in this picture, we had 3 rainy days as well.... but we made the best out of it.
Brian Walbey: I have seen some Dutch beaches, indeed they are like this. We made the most of things depsite the rain as well.
The sand has come out well Brian.
Brian Walbey: Totally natural beach, not commercialised, that's the best thing about it.
A fine stretch of beach Brian. There is always a breeze from the north sea which can be a bit chilly
Brian Walbey: This is the nicer part of the coast around Skegness. It can be chilly on the east coast although we had some fine holidays on the Norfolk coast when the children were young.
i like the layers and the dune grass and the deep blue colour of the sea Brian... great composition....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
Not too many people about. Loooks perfect.
