The story behind this image

Nothing says 'British Seaside' better than an old fashioned 'Owl' telescope, beloved of children and the despair of parents for generations!

So as my wife Liz and I were strolling along the promenade at Prestatyn on the North Wales coast, I couldn't resist pausing for a few moments to photograph this iconic relic of times past as it caught the light of a winter's sun.

It's nice to know that a traditional seaside still exists.
