Thrills ‘n’ spills

Ocean Beach Amusement Park, South Shields

Ocean Beach Amusement Park

I was walking past the amusement park at the sea front in South Shields yesterday morning noticing that although it is closed over the winter months it is still a hive of activity. Workers, engineers, and mechanics are beavering away getting machinery and rides ready for the big opening on Good Friday in a few weeks time. New rides are being erected and installed and fresh coats of paint being applied and all necessary maintenance and repairs being effected in time for the influx of visitors.

That’s why I dragged this picture out from the archives as it shows the thrills, spills, and excitement of youngsters enjoying themselves when the park is in full swing, a fun fair is one of the big attractions of seaside towns like South Shields.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82 mm lens, 1/500 second, f5.6, iso 200
