Rubbish You don't go to a British beach for the warmth or sand. You go for the bracing salt-laden clean, fresh air and the sound of seagulls.
And to dig worms and go fishing for the freshest fish you'll ever eat... In my case, already nicely irradiated by the nearby Hinckley Point nuclear power station. Those three eyes taste a treat...
I rest my case
I know what you mean about missing the sea though, I spent the best years of my childhood by the sea, although it was somewhat warmer, sandier, and the aquatic life was somewhat prettier!
As for getting to Oz, how about Kayak?
