Bournemouth Pier

Yesterday at near freezing temperatures we went to the beach.  Why the beach at 32 degrees with a wind chill in the high-20s?  Because the clouds cleared!!

Bournemouth Pier is a fun spot for the family and is a big tourist destination during the summer months.  The pier has loads of games for the kids, complete with an old fashion carousel.  The nearby Winter Gardens has a huge hot air balloon that you can take up and look over all of Bournemouth.  I have done it during the summer months and the views are beautiful and more enjoyable at warmer temperatures!

Bournemouth beach has wide expanses of sand with great restaurants all along the shore.  We had a family dinner last night at Aruba which provides amazing vistas of the waves crashing along the coast.  The interior of the restaurant is modern and has a fun beach bar.

Despite being cold out, it was nice to just hear the sounds of the waves and be by the sea.  My goddaughter also LOVES the sea and being in the water.  The only difference is she will swim at this time of year and you wouldn’t catch me in water that cold for anything!
