Anyway, we were right by the pier so we popped down there, took photos and came up with ideas which we decided on and sorted in a near by pub. We were decided on what we would do by about 1.30, so we split up to look about. While they all went off to find shops, I stayed by the pier where there was a Doctor Who Exhibition at the end of it in a big dome, with tatty rides scattered around it. It was six quid to get in, and I had a tenner on me so I decided to give it a look.
Earier, when we were driving thorugh to out stopping point, I spotted a old-fashioned cinema that had a large Howl's Moving Castle poster at the front. Because they are not going to be showing it in Southend, I thought I might pop in there later. Sadly didn't have time though, and decided that I'd pop up to Balsidon to see it soon, and see the Doctor Who thing instead. They had all sorts of stuff from the first six episodes of the last series, including props, models and of coruse...full scale Daleks. I was kind of hoping they'd have one out that you could touch, because I wanna hug one, but they had "Do not touch, we are watching, there are only two ways off the pier!" signs, so never mind.
I waddled about in here for about 45 minutes and it was worth a look. At the end of it there was what I presume was computers set up to have the website on it, but they jus had the default windows desktop open, so I opened up MSpaint and left a little present. Here are some photos I took, scattered about. Click to enlarge.
After that we went to some greyhounds race place, which was a bit boring to be honest, then got back at about 6pm. As for the postcard design of mine, I made it last night (Which was why I didn't post this blog then.) and I'll be posting it on DevArt later. For now though, I'm waiting for the Dell bloke to arrive, although now this computer seems to want to work. Bah.
