Whooooppeeeeee, I've finished. I went to Cleethorpes yesterday because I fancied walking along a beach, something different to the village and fields around here. I made a little video.
I took some photo's as well. The car park was next to the duck pond. There were literally hundreds of wildfowl, mainly Canada Geese and Swans. Nice that they have designated a feeding area.
Here are the rules. Oh, maybe not a good idea to feed them then.
More rules. Now you have to sort out which birds you want to feed, and have the appropriate fodder for them. Only wholemeal bread allowed. Don't forget to cook the pulses and rice first. Ask them to tell you when they have had enough, and don't give them any more.
Next onto the beach. The sun is lost in the clouds and it's a bit cold. I put my big jacket on but my hands are cold. The sea is way out in the distance, half a mile of wet sand to plod through if I want to stand by the waters edge. I should have put my wellies on. I won't bother. Looking old and cold.
The Town Hall is a lovely old building.
The Clock Tower at the railway station.
Rules for placing deck chairs on the beach.
The entrance to the pier.
Fish and chips and a pub at the end of the pier. A few people taking advantage of alfresco dining.
A few typical seaside shops were open, some of them with their displays spilling out onto the pavement.
The evening is almost here.
Saved the best one till last. I spent the last half an hour trying to find a good spot to photograph what could be a stunning sunset. Glimpses of it could be seen over the rooftops. It's a shame I am not on the west coast, that would have been brilliant. Pretty pleased with this shot though. The flock of birds came over just at the right moment.
It was dark when I got back to the car. All the wildfowl were asleep on the pond. It was very eerie.
Now it's lunchtime. Looking miserable outside, I'm glad I made the effort yesterday to finish this walk. I will continue walking until the end of the year, but have stopped counting. The new calendar is ready to start again on January the 1st.
Thanks for popping in. Cheerio for now. Tatty byes, Catch ya soon. Toodle pip. ilona
