The day has continued. I arrived in Buxton quite handily for the bus down to Bakewell. The really helpful bus driver pointed out that the day ticket was not only cheaper than two single tickets but it also covered a bigger area. So game on and first stop Bakewell. Where there was a Farmers Market in progress. Hmmm, food…. I had a wander around that. I managed to only buy […]
A Little while ago I took a trip out to Hull on the east coast. Things had begun the long return to normal and I needed to visit a place I either hadn’t been to before or hadn’t been to for a long time. After a bit of head scratching and no I didn’t get any splinters in my fingers, I decided on a revisit to Hull.

Well September has arrived and with it a burst of sunshine and warmth. Hopefully the long days will be going out in a golden haze and not a grey, damp mist. I’m taking a break from jam and chutney making, yes my rock and roll lifestyle, with a few hours on the Fylde Coast at Lytham. The town is one of my favourite get away spots,even on a busy day […]
