The beach at Southport – I loved the days on the beach with the sea miles away due to the strong tides and walking on the pier with no water underneath. The tides were so rare and in all the years I’ve gone to Southport, I have only seen water under the pier half a dozen times. There was a big pool where we could swim though.
