    Does anyone know what happened to our friend from Luxembourg, he hasn’t posted anything for a while?

    Phil - yes, I have a couple of pals who work in hotels here and to say they're feeling fearful is putting it mildly as they've had so many cancellations it's not worth them opening. I walked along the north part of the promenade this afternoon and barely any life to be seen or had. A whole lot of people are being laid off yet again and having lost so much trade this year, a fair few hotels and guest houses are gonna end up shutting down for good. Fair to say, it's feeling rather grim right now.

    My neighbours should have been there on a package holiday this week, but the coach company have cancelled it. I feel really sorry for the hotels and entertainment industry.

    There's a huge crowd because the latest "lockdown" was only foisted upon us yesterday so either many visitors are unaware of this or they're grabbing one last chance to enjoy what they can.

    Same here willie, usually this time of year, we've usually been at least 4 or 5 times for a long weekend. We would normally go in December as well, but sadly not this year. Hope 2021 will be a much better year for everyone. Stay sane, safe and take care all :)x

    Jenny. Thank you for filling me in. I guessed it was more art than function, but it was watching it bend so wildly earlier that sparked my curiousity.

    Hi Ray. They are the Dune Grass sculptures and there are several down the prom. You can see the others bend into view when it is windy. Although primarily an art installation, they are very useful wind indicators when watching the webcam!

    Secondly. To offer a humble opinion only on the subscription. Ive paid subs for over a year, purely to stop the adverts, and for that reason alone I feel, for me, its worth it.

    Can someone enlighten me as to what the tall spoon shaped floating structure is. Does it have an info panel? Is it a full time or temp. installation. Does it have a purpose or is it art. How long has it been there. Anything. It seems such an odd... err.... thing. Thanks
