It's been a while since my last post, we've had rain for days now. A lot of areas have suffered really bad flooding but, thankfully, we have escaped.
So, today was the first sunny day for a while & I had the chance to try out a compact camera I've been considering buying. My local shop allowed me to use it for a day or two before deciding.
I took it along Cleethorpes Promenade this morning. The resulting pictures were really good but I found it difficult to use, I just didn't feel happy with it, so decided not to buy it. Just shows the advantage of always buying from your local Camera Dealer, had I bought it from the Internet I would be stuck with it now. I've been a customer of this shop for the last 60 years!
(Sorry for more images from our Promenade but this is where I always head for when trying new equipment, as I have a standard with previous pictures for comparison.)
Our Pier is now owned by "Papas", a national chain of Fish & Chip resturants.
At least it's being used and maintained, over previous years it's furure was doubtful.

"Crazy Golf Site", closed today. There are a few tributes to Donald McGill the well
known artist who produced rather saucy postcards in the 1950's which are now
