As regular readers will be aware, Tina and I took a week off last week. To get away, we enjoyed a short break by the sea, spending three nights in a caravan at 'Beachside' in Brean but visiting Berrow and Brunham-on-Sea.

I enjoy making films about Ross and the Wye Valley but sometimes, a change is as good as a rest. I planned, before we left home, to make a similar film to the 'Ross-on-Wye' time lapse film on the front page, but for Burnham, Berrow and Brean. I made the film for no reason other than for own amusement as Burnham and Berrow are favourite relaxation spots for Tina and I but I thought it worth including here. Other people living in Ross might like to take a short break in the area.

Should you find yourself visiting the area and getting hungry. I recommend the 'Seagull' in Brean as a place to eat. We coincidentally met Tina's parents whilst away - neither of us knowing that the other was visiting Burnham. Having discovered our coincidental same time, same place thing, we met up for a meal at the 'Seagull' in Brean. It's just like Wetherspoons at lunch times, but the food is nice.

Time lapse film. Three days by the sea at Burnham, Berrow and Brean.

This time lapse film shows the beautiful seaside resort of Burnham-on-Sea and the beaches at both Berrow and Brean, both by day and by night.

At 3.04 seconds into the sequence, after sundown the two 'stars' in the sky are the planets Venus and Mercury. They can be seen moving together towards the horizon in the west. Mercury is the dimmer of the two objects, located to the right of the brighter Venus. Being the closest planet to the sun, Mercury is rarely noticed by the casual observer of the early evening skies.

The shipwreck is that of the Norwegian barque, 'SS Nornen', which sunk at Berrow in March 1897. All 10 crew members plus their dog were rescued by the Burnham lifeboat, the 'John Godfrey Morris' on 3rd March of that year.

The islands are Steep Holm and Flat Holm in the Bristol Channel, as seen from Berrow and Brean by day and by night.
