Travels in Southern England – Bournemouth Help For Heroes

Saturday 23rd May

I have been visiting Bournemouth for a while now. It is a brilliant town and I plan to write a bigger blog on it but not just yet. This is a small piece to recount the efforts some of the town’s people are doing for our Britain’s veteran soldiers in support of the “Help For Heroes” charity. Today was a gorgeous day for it. The sun was out and people were on the beach enjoying the sunshine.

Activities included – abseiling from the pier to beach and bookselling. I donated two Peatmore Press Jack Lindsey books as my contribution.

There were some great views from the pier including some spectacular large brown jellyfish and a masked lady being filmed riding a water-motor bike (although I am not sure that this is the right name for this skidoo-like vehicle). I later tried to identify the jellyfish by typing their description into Google and believe they are called Rhizostoma pulmo also known as barrel jellyfish.

    Nice pictures. Jellyfish are preetty but not a good sign for British waters. Overfishing means that jellyfish are taking over other decimated species roles in the food chain. Think about it next time you get non sustainable cod and chips – all that will be left in the seas is jellyfish!!

      Hi. Thank you for your comment. Barrrel Jellyfish were mentioned in Bournemouth on BBC Radio’s Today programme the following day. Apparently they are attracting leather-back turtles and basking sharks to British waters as they like to feed on these jellyfish.
