The last five days have been pretty bleak down the Lincolnshire coast.

I'm not sure it needs need bad weather to make Mablethorpe unappealing.
The same would apply to my birthplace (a bit further southeast) Great Yarmouth.  I moved away circa 1960 and Yarmouth promptly went downhill.

At this point I must mention an extraordinary incident in Italy.  I had to divert due bad weather from Florence to Pisa (remember that I was an airline pilot).  There were several hours to wait before the passengers arrived from by bus from Florence.  I got chatting to the Italian Operations Officer.  He told me that every year, he went on holiday to England to:"a place you will never have heard of".  Yes, you've guessed: Great Yarmouth!  It takes all sorts!
