Staithes in slanting sun



Staithes in slanting sun, originally uploaded by Fi – been out poorly (sleepycat-gallery.com).

A lovely day out at Staithes and Saltburn and a night staying locally. The weather was perfect – bright and clear and breezy. One thing I will always remember is that everyone there seemed to have at least one dog – cute pooches everywhere…..

Childhood home not seen for many years….

childhood home refound
We left this house when we were children and moved from the area. Its a pleasure to find it on Google street….. Many memories. My bedroom window above garage edge, the hedge that was a pleasure to jump into (why didn’t Dad like me doing that?!) the small wall that I hit on my bike and ripped off two fingernails (still got the scar)…. plus cå change etc etc.

Roman rites on Hadrian Wall night



Roman rites on Hadrian Wall night, originally uploaded by Fi – spring is sprung (sleepycat-gallery.com).

They came, they saw and they clambered on the ramparts – in numbers not seen on Hadrian’s Wall since the Romans called it a day and pulled out their legions 1,600 years ago.

Drawn by the first-ever lighting of the 70-mile monument from end to end, thousands of visitors filled every local car park, lay-by and footpath, while helicopters and a Nasa satellite recorded the necklace of beacons from above. [from the Guardian online write up]

Waiting for the last Hadrian beacon in West



Waiting for the last Hadrian beacon in West, originally uploaded by Fi – spring is sprung (sleepycat-gallery.com).

We dawdled along some lovely little roads and around a headland of marshes on the Solway to get to Bowness on Solway in time to see the final in the 84 mile line of beacons along Hadrian’s Wall light up the foreshore. With Roman re-enactors and fiery arrows flung over the Solway it was a really nice way to enjoy the almost Spring evening.
