Of course, day three of our weekend mini-break happened to be World Goth Day. We had been prepared for this, and when we got off the train at Bournemouth immediately went to Asda across the road and went hunting for absinthe - thanks to the reader who tipped me off to the fact that Asda sells cheap absinthe!
We began our day with a hearty breakfast (thanks Clive!) and a bit more shopping; then we lounged about in the pleasure gardens by the river for a while.
This was my first ever taste of absinthe, which I thought was a fitting way to raise a glass to Goth Day. Surprisingly, I'm actully sober in the below pictures - but you wouldn't know it to look at me.
