The weather was kinder for this seasonal re-visit. The weekend had encouraged day trippers to enjoy Bognor Regis’ beach and there was plenty of activity on the promenade, as the shops, booths and cafes began a new season. There was a spring in the step of the visitors, a tonic after a long period of mixed weather.

There are two central beaches in Bognor Regis. West Beach sits to the west of the Bognor Regis Pier entrance, with East Beach predictably on the other side. With shingle on the shore end and large expanses of flat sands at low tide, both are family beaches. The large number of groynes or breakwaters are excellent windbreaks for hot, breezy days on the beach. The magnificent Royal Hotel overlooks West beach. To the east of the pier entrance is East Beach. It’s close to the main town centre and all the facilities you’d want, with car parks close by.
Alan is a long way from home, examining the beach.
