    Ein schönes Fleckchen Erde

    September 7, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Die Nacht war unruhig. Der Wind war wieder stärker geworden und schüttelte uns ordentlich durch. Nacheinander schlossen wir die Fenster und Dachluken.
    Unser Weg heute ging auf die Spurn Halbinsel.
    Ein schönes Fleckchen Erde. Es lohnt. Wir sind allerdings froh das die Hauptsaison beendet ist.
    Erster Stopp, Bonbonfabrik, John Bull Sweet Shop in Bridlington. Es hat sich gelohnt 😃😃
    Zum Essen, Thomi wünscht sich Fish&Chips, halten wir in Withernsea. Ein typischer englischer Badeort. Das Essen war 👍.
    Weiter ging unsere Reise. Nächster Stopp der „Cold War Bunker“, diesen besuchte Thomi allein. Unterirdisch angelegt als Überwachungsbunker der Royal Airforce. Noch immer komplett ausgestattet, als ob man ihn morgen wieder braucht.
    Unser Finale war der Spurn Head. Einen schönen Marsch machten wir dort, ehe wir uns einen Tee mit Toffeecrunch und Gingerbread schmecken ließen.
    Einen Übernachtungsplatz haben wir ach fix am Wasser gefunden.
    Morgen geht’s nach Hull... um 20;30 Uhr geht die Fähre.

    July 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌫 13 °C

    The expected delays around Birmingham didn't eventuate so we had a good drive to Liverpool. Here we spent 3 days seeing family. Beryl, Ronnie, Darren and his friend Zona. It was great to catch up.
    On our second day we all met in town and toured all the new developements after lunch. Liverpool has made great progress after being the UK's city of culture some years ago and redevelopment is still taking place.
    Beryl wanted us to see the oldest pub in town, The Philamonic. It still has the original urinal from 1853 and the smell there dates from that period.

    New Boots

    July 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We left Liverpool early for our trip to Richmond in North Yorkshire where we picked up our new boots at Alt Berg.
    It was 12deg when we left and crossing the moors it drop to 8deg with rain.
    At Alt Berg our boots were ready and they fitted really well.
    From Richmond we headed down and across to Bridlington. There was a deviation on the A1 and the GPS and I did not have a clue where we were. I retraced me steps and followed a truck and bingo we were back on track. Nothing from the GPS as it was a new road. It sorted itself out and we arrived at Christine and Habib's about 2 pm.
    After lunch we went to Sewerby village and walked along the cliff tops onto the Esplanade in Bridlington. A lovely walk.

    July 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We visited many places during our stay with C & H.
    The first day we visited a Sail windmill, at Skidby, still in , working order.
    Gee they worked hard in those days. Very interesting to see the old machines and how heavy the were.
    From there we headed to Hull, the 2017 Uk Cultural City.
    Very impressed with all the redevelopement going on.
    A lovelyMinster, being renovated, with great gardens and many fine old buildings.
    In the evening we had dinner at the Triton Inn in Sledmere.
    I had my favourite lamb shanks. Great meal and evening.

    More Rugby (and a quote from my studies)

    March 18, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌫 6 °C

    During one's life time how many people one encounters! You speak to them, you laugh a little, you share a glass of beer, you sing. But once the man is laid to rest beneath the cross, the end, he no longer exists. He is laid to rest and he is silent. He is silent. And if we hear someone respond, it is not from the bottom of the grave, we are simply dreaming. Sometimes someone comes to talk to us. Or to stroll around here and there. Or sometimes he stays seated. As if he weren't dead. Or he takes up a cart, even begins some kind of work. Just like a living man. Like a true living man, not like a dead man. Why - one can never know, but in the dream you never see a dead man in his grave, not even in the casket where he is laid during the funeral service. In our dreams the dead walk, they are seated in front of a pushcart, gesture to you with their hands. Just like the real living. Perhaps this is why the Lord gave dreams to man, so that he might see, as if they were truly living, those who no longer, but whom he would truly like to see again
