I’m unsure whether to continue this blog, there’s a lot of spamming and advertising going on.
However in the meantime, 3 weeks ago in the days before rain, we went to Yorkshire’s wonderful coast to North Landing, just round the corner from Flamborough Head. We had a coffee and a wicked slice of coffee cake in the cliff top cafe, made by a very friendly lady, who quite rightly said she had one of the best views from any cafe anywhere in the world. I suppose there are several cafes in Bali, Nepal, Spain, Greece, Italy, France, Germany and almost every country in the world with equally exceptional views. I did say “one of“.
I like to be there when there is a raging sea but the North Sea on the day we went, was quite benign. I took Astrid there because there is nothing like it anywhere on the northern coast of Europe any further north than Cherbourg, especially not on the Dutch coast. Pottering about from rock pool to rock pool, she was in her element. It was reminiscent of the time we went to Ireland and spent an evening at Bun na Thiarin picking Connemara marble pebbles from the rocky shoreline, just up from Louisburg. We found crabs under rocks & sea anenomes. Then the tide slowly came in and we flowed up the shingle slowly ahead of it.
The sciatica has completely gone, what a nightmare that was. I’ve had a bit of pain in the past, broken things, post op pains, pulled muscles, back pain and even a ruptured deltoid but there was always a sweet spot where I could lie or sit relatively pain free, but not with this.
I’m still unemployed, getting pretty bored now but I’ve built a website for a local coach company HERE and today a double glazing company has asked if I’d consider making them one as well. I had a lot of fun making the coach website. I got right into it, knowing the hotels intimately after having research them, obtain images and data, checking for errors prior to uploading. Having searched for 40 or so hotel webpages, it gives you a really good idea of what to do and more importantly what not to do on a website. Some are bloody awful. The webpage is aimed at a specific age group so I’ve had to tailor it accordingly.
I hope you enjoy the images. The close up of the cave is quite impressive even if I say it myself. I went inside it when I was a kid and the tide was very low. The flower is described as a weed, it’s called celandine and was growing on the slopes of the cliffs. It’s quite aggressive and will quite easily take over your garden unchecked but the little 8 petalled flowers are quite pretty. There were also primroses but the photos weren’t good enough to publish.
