Seaside Favourites, by Tilly Hunter
A big thank you to my fellow Smut by the Sea vol 2 author Erzabet for having me over here to share six of the best – things about the seaside, that is:
- Favourite seaside resort:
Llandudno in North Wales. We went every year when I was a kid. I love that you’ve got the pier and prom with their amusement arcades and doughnut stalls, but you can also go for wild rambles on the Great Orme or swim off the West Shore.
- Favourite ice cream flavour:
Anything but vanilla. I’ve been storing that line up for the right moment ;-)
- Favourite coastal hidden gem:
Probably the little faux island of Ynys Llanddwyn off Newborough on Anglesey. On the other hand, I’ve always regretted not going for a swim at Durness on the northern Scottish coast (just along from Cape Wrath) when I happened to be there on a fine, sunny day many years ago.
- Favourite Smut by the Sea Vol 2 story:
Shipwrecked by Tamsin Flowers. It has a lighthouse in it. And a lighthouse keeper. I once read a book about a guy who dropped out of art college and went to work on a lighthouse just before they were all automated (Stargazing by Peter Hill, if you’re interested). I guess lighthouses are one of my geeky loves, along with maps and allotments.
- Favourite amusement arcade game:
The 2p machines, as described by Lucy Felthouse in her story, On the Big Wheel. You know the ones, with moving shelves piled high with two-pence coins and you hope yours will be the one to push them all off and down the payout chute.
- Favourite bizarre seaside setting:
The Principality of Sealand. A WWII fort seven miles off Suffolk declared a sovereign state in the seventies. I read about this in a book about the shipping forecast (Attention All Shipping, by Charlie Connelly). Jeez, I really am a geek.
