Holiday 26

Was a day out to Rhyl I remember it fondly as a place wherr cars crawled in queues for miles to get into. Alas no more. Since the Sunlife Centre’s demise, the place was empty. Rolling sandy beaches devoid of life stretched for miles. There were seagulls and starlings and a few hardy tourists braving […]

As an adoptive Canvey girl the similarities always strike me with this seaside town. Created as a holiday resort by a Victorian with imagination, the cliffs were opened […]

50 before 50: #17 & #18 Harlow

Snapped yesterday in Harlow were these two Blue Plaques. I’ll be honest, I was surprised to see them. Harlow for me has a negative connotation. Home to all the worst  Essex can be: chavs, shellsuits, bling. And yet I found  a bustling connurbation. A thriving market, a wide range of shops. A community spirit. A […]

50 before 50: #15 & #16 St Ives

Stopping in St Ives awhile back I snapped these two plaques. Not remembering people per se. More remembering the occupations of people and the buildings they worked in: the corn exchange and the police station  If you get time to visit, it’s a quaint market town with some nice independent eateries and a statue of […]
