What do you imagine a British summer’s day to be like? I think this photo just about sums it up for me.
Surrounded by dark heavy clouds the defiantly optimistic people rush out in their masses to enjoy sunhine. Committed to the cause, some will stay out all day whether the weather turns or not. Most, however, are simply living for the moment.
The small stretch of sand is crammed with people desperate to get a good spot, desperate to escape their rainy routines. There’s an eclectic mix of colours and different people doing different things, but everyone shares the same idea; to catch that fleeting spell of sunshine – because who knows when it will next appear!
And no matter how dark those looming clouds are, or how close our towel is to another’s, we will enjoy it.
