Thanks for posting this Caz.  :)

The women appear to be wearing Edwardian clothing with the wonderful straw boaters.

In the middle of the photo on the very neat fence with the pillars, what is that pale rectangular 'thing'? I am hoping it is a sign of some sort.

The foreground looks quite light coloured - might that mean sand rather than pebbles? Might the black bits on the sand be seaweed? I am not sure if sand and seaweed would make any difference location wise (I am not too knowledgeable about UK beaches).

I think the ladies may be sitting on a rock on the beach.

The space between houses and sea seems to be quite narrow - i.e. not the wide Marine Parade style resort of places such as Eastbourne or Brighton, so I am postulating that this isn't one of the big, popular resorts..........

Well done Janan!  Doesn't it look different hiding behind a coat of paint.

Doh!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

And then the next post:

Goodness it is North Berwick. Marine Parade

Well done indeed. It is good to see they are still standing and looking magnificent, someone has spent a lot of money on them

Marine Parade or not it was one of the smaller seaside towns ;D

It was the isolated steep hill in the background that made me wonder about North Berwick but I was really surprised to find it was !
