Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Betty Woodengran went for a day at the seaside in Hastings down in Sussex by the Sea.

Ker-ching ! She tried (and failed) to win a fortune in the amusement arcades ...

Had a naughty snigger at the Winkle Club !

Loved looking at all the really old timber-clad houses in the Old Town

Found a house with lots of wooden friends (but didn't fancy having a pencil stuck up her bum, thank you very much !) 

Discovered the Piece of Cheese house (but didn't have a nibble !)

Had a ride on Brum

Went on the bumper cars

Scared herself silly on the ghost train !

Oh my goodness, what's this ? 

She almost got eaten by a huge eel (who didn't want to be made into jellied eels) !

Out of the frying pan into the fire - what now ?

Eeeek it's an enormous octopus now ! Help, help !

She decided to take shelter in the Old Town museum to get away from all the scary monsters and put on this World War II tin hat to be on the safe side !

Watch out Betty, he'll bite your head off !

Ahh that's a bit safer - some swans made out of towels by the lovely maid at the hotel !

Up in the clouds

Sign your name across my bark !

Betty WoodenGran !! Will you get down from there ! I can't take my eyes off you for one second !

Admittedly she's the not the only one to have carved her name on this poor tree but even so ...
