Surf’s Up – Santa Can Wait!
Air balloon rides, brightly coloured merry-go-rounds and yes, that was Santa Claus on a tightrope, high above the Christmas shoppers in Bournemouth town centre today. Nothing unusual there you might say. Except this is November 19th, barely five weeks away from Christmas Day. Just a short stroll from town and beach huts were opening their doors to the balmy weather.
Everywhere you turned, people were brandishing ice-creams and surfboards, happy to defy the approach of winter somewhere on the distant horizon.
You could be forgiven for thinking this was Malibu or Maui not the Dorset coast.
A sunset is a sunset, right? Maybe, but this was just too good an opportunity to miss with my camera.
I had planned on putting together a winter wonderland post of photographs pretty soon. Santa will have to wait a little while longer.
