Holiday: 30

I am at the end of my tether with this internet lark. It is now Wednesday and the service is so intermittent as to be non existent. I have so many query boxes on the current writings that I feel I’m writing a learned academic piece not a work of crime fiction. Today’s adventure saw […]

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.

On a sunny Saturday, we walked from our chalet to the lighthouse and back. En route we came across the following plaques. Not blue but very historic. 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 […]
