Every year in Worthing we have a ‘sea front fayre’. It includes lots of a fun activities along the seafront, including a fun fair, market stalls, car and bike shows, and a bus rally. The bus rally takes place just nearby, so we usually walk down to have a look.
There are always lots of the Routemasters, the iconic London bus:
Our local bus company had this cream and green livery.
Ahhh! These take me back to my childhood, early 1970s coaches! I would have sat on one of these on school outings, and my grandparents would have caught one of these when they came to visit from Birmingham. I remember once going on a coach day trip wioth them to Hastings. I think we have photos somewhere…. I feel a scrapbook page coming on!
We always enjoy looking at vintage vehicles that have been lovingly restored. As we walked home Maurice asked me if it brings the ‘anorak’ out in me. I have to say, no, it doesn’t. I like looking at them and appreciate the hard work and patience that has gone into them, but have no interest in the history, the mechanics and details of which garage these buses and coaches operated from! However, it must be great to show off your bus at one of these events, along with others who share your passion.
Finally, I managed another Scavenger Hunt photo. An outdoor market. Yesterday we had the charity stalls along the seafront
