Lynton & Lynmouth

When I was a kid I loved going to Lynton & Lynmouth so that we could ride the world's highest and steepest fully water powered railway. The famous Lynton and Lynmouth funicular Cliff Railway opened in 1890 and is the highest and the steepest totally water powered railway in the world! This historic funicular Cliff...

Ouch…

Things happen when you are on holiday, it is inevitable, but usually, it is something small, like being charged for something you did not have (bread on table in Europe), or having a meal that you did not really enjoy (that was my lunch yesterday), but sometimes it is something really big, like missing a...

Heddon Valley & Croyde Bay

Monday we went to Heddon Valley and walked through to Heddon's Mouth which is a lovely pebble beach that was completely deserted.  Paul said that most people don't realise it is there and think it is a grassy bank and a National Trust centre along with a pub.

So-called plans…

We joined the national trust this week and thought, what the hell, let's go to Lyme Park, spend the day there, and of course, take Harper with us. We have not been there for about 6 years. Even though we would not be able to go into the house with the dog, we were happy... Continue Reading →

Zombie Apocalypse…

I always wondered what it would be like when the eventual and inevitable Zombie Apocalypse hit. I am sure you all understand where I am coming from, and may have thought about it too. You know, the day when everything stops, life changes, and not necessarily for the good. Thursday 21st September 10:28am Whilst in... Continue Reading →
