  Noddy - meet him in skeggy
by sourbugger

You have to admire the company that runs the donkey concession on Skegness Beach for their persistence in trying to earn an honest dollar.

The fourty or so donkeys earn their keep to the tune of one pound 50p every time they delight a child by transporting it to the sea and back.

The donkeys are all checked out medically throughout the season and seem to enjoy their work. The season runs from the start of June through to the end of the August.

'Noddy' is apparently the best looking of the donkeys on the beach, although I was a little reluctant to enquire further about what actually makes a donkey good-looking.

It's a pity that Jesus wasn't an Englishman, the disciples would have had no problem around here finding a donkey for palm sunday.

Address: On the beach
