Open top bus trip:

This is where all the idiots who like to take home tat filled with coloured sand come to collect it. Of course they aren't allowed to collect it any more as the cliff falls on 'em. They have to go to the special shop at the top where they are able to purchase plastic isle of wight shaped, motobike shaped, lighthouse shaped, any damn thing shaped plastic bottle type things. Of course, out of situ the sand doesn't look so good, so what did the owners decide to do? Dye the damn stuff garish colours.

I remember going there as a wee nipper, and being totally hacked off that you couldn't collect the sand yourself. I had to be content with a glass lighthouse full of the stuff :(

Yeah, shit innit. Unfortunately there was only a certain height up to which people could reach so over time it would erode the bottom and the rest of the thing would come crashing down on the idiot folk below....

When I were a lad you were allowed to collect your own. Had to buy an empty container of whatever strange shape took your fancy and off you went, clambering up the somewhat dodgy cliff face in search of all those less than vibrant colours.

Lovely scenic shot. It is sad the lengths some people will go to to make a buck. Just as sad is the fact that people actually buy the tacky crap they're flogging. ;)

Yup, it's just sand and the English people would defend their bits of slightly more orange sand to the end of the earth!

Well after the previous several photos (including a moustached Batdog) this just seems so ordinary---but a wonderful shot all the same! And I want some sand too!
