Cars on Beaches

Postcard cars on beach

It’s December. Let’s remind ourselves of summer days.

I know this blog is called ‘Cars on Streets’ but here are a few cars off streets.  I think most local councils have now  stopped vehicular access to beaches in the UK and having lived in countries where it is common and where cars and quad bikes race up and down and you fear for your life walking to the sea, I am not really sorry. However, all looks very peaceful here.
