A sunny Easter holiday for once

It’s rare to have a sunny Easter holiday period, and after the wild winds on Thursday night, the weather didn’t look promising, but spring blossomed at the perfect time for ATownExploresABook’s Railway Children event on Saturday in Kings Road and there was even an opportunity to bask in the sun with a young seal. Photographer JJ Waller documents the holiday fun.
