The Bristol Riviera

First day out of the house today for my mother in a couple of weeks. The picture doesn't quite capture the chilly north wind, like opening a fridge door.

We were visiting Severn Beach - an acquired taste with its mud-and-shingle water's edge, and the enduring drone of road noise from the M4 bridge over the Severn (pictured).

Still, the engineering is magnificent. A Severn Barrage, twenty miles down-river at Brean, would complete the experience!
