Keeping my completest streak happy, I thought I would wrap up my day out to Beaumaris, the day after in fact. I enjoyed the trip, yes it could have been a little bit brighter and warmer but it is the beginning of November so you get what you’re given weather wise. I had a walk around while I used up the last half an hour before the bus back to […]
Right, I’d had my lunch, it was time to wobble onwards and walk off, or at least try to, my Welsh Rarebit.

While it might be small it does reward with a mixture of corners and enterprises worth looking out for. There will be links etc at the bottom. The close set […]

It’s not a long journey but long enough to relax and watch the world go by. First […]
I took a ride over to Chorley yesterday evening, it was the second night of the always entertaining Chorley Live music event, where shops, pubs and squares become venues for live music and the spoken word. It’s a great night out and has a fixed place on my calendar. There’s a mix of music types and performance, just get your entry wristband, it’s £5 and covers both nights Some Links […]
