California Dreaming

Pleasure beach Great Yarmouth
California, England. It’s not where you expect to find a California, but there it is, clinging to the Norfolk cliffs, next to Scratby. We would tell our schoolfriends we went to California every year on vacation, slightly forgetting to mention it was 6000 miles to the right of the one in the States. And marginally less glamorous. Or hot. This is the Pleasure Beach in Great Yarmouth, the highlight of every childhood summer holiday.

Yours truly squinting in the sun. Some very lovely old beach huts here, next to the rackety old fun fair.

Robot Ride, Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach
A relic from the 70s, when the world was high on Star Wars and the fair was a riot of screaming colour and noise.

The Pink Panther says it all, really, doesn’t he? Still here.

I’m saying goodbye to Scratby, driving off through the chocolate-box villages to Kent.

Episodes one, two and three are here ‘if you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air…’
