Excellent coastal bolt that took ages to find as my attention was focused on a particular area and it wasn't until I'd walked past it for the third time that I spotted it...

Found the blighter!!

A rivet set into the kerb at the edge of a car park overlooking the sea. Very easy to locate. Not much else to say about this one, really.

Looked in two wrong places before finding the rivet as it is very small. Bagged as YOSM too :)

Easy to find with the map from gps.gov.uk when you look in the correct car park (oops). A nice view on the sea front but nothing special.
