The days of enjoying the beach sans wetsuit/big coat seem already to be long gone and still so far away. Despite this Ashley Charles has a video and photo story up about his life by the beach and his enduring love of life by the sea. Ashley is a long time resident of Bournemouth and while having travelled to most corners of the globe he still gravitates back to the Dorset seaside. He has written a short piece about why he hasnt moved to the big smoke and is happy in a town more renowned for its OAPs by the sea (inevitable stereotype i know). The video illustrates another advantage to living by the sea in having a great length of seafront to explore by bike and one that at this time of year is all but deserted. Take a look at the picture story here.
