757 – A day out and about

We drove in to Bognor Regis. I must admit that I have been wondering when the accolade Regis was granted. The term Regis means “of the King” a Latin term. In simplistic terms, the Monarch can choose to award the status of “Regis” because the town does something that supports the crown.

Bognor gained the honour in 1929 when Bognor was used by King George V for several months to convalesce. Some parts of the town has a calmness to it. Of course Bognor Regis today is not the town of 1929. I wonder what it was really like then. I suspect that like today, it had its good parts and its bad parts. Perhaps it isn’t that different.

Central Bognor in shopping terms isn’t really that grand, but I don’t get an impression of it being run down I don’t recall any closed units. Also, there were plenty of people around and the cafes were being well used.

To me, a big draw is the 2nd hand bookshop at the railway station. It is neat and well managed and very well stocked, especially with Science fiction, railway, photography and astronomy books. The proprietor has an “ology” section, he could do with a bigger philosophy section. I always enjoy visiting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
