It's just over a year since my operation for bowel cancer and today I had a colonoscopy to check if all was well and I'm very relieved to say it was.
I can relax, just like Popcorn.

The area in the foreground is the concrete apron for maintenance people to access the sluice.
When I went to the Cleethorpes Armed Forces celebrations I had a ride on the Ferris Wheel and took a few photo's from it.
|The Ferris wheel was situated adjacent to "The Point", an apartment block which |
can be seen on the left.

|Gondoliers on the wheel.|
|This angle is reminiscent of the "Fighting Machines" in Jeff Waynes musical|
interpretation of "The War of the Worlds". At least in my mind.
|From inside my gondolier I found it difficult to take photo's. The Perspex windows were|
a bit defused and the framework slightly obscured the views.
|This view shows the area where the entertainment stage was set up and crowds were gathering.|
|Back on tera firma, another look at the wheel's structure.|

Cleethorpes celebrates our Armed Forces each year and has various other attractions along the promenade.
I went along the promenade the day before the main celebrations, and march, to photograph the stalls and attractions.
|Central promenade and all the sideshows, stalls & attractions.|
|Great if you like cheese.|
|Eurofighter Typhoon display.|
|This stall caught my eye as it was just for doggy treats.|
|Promoting the "Red Arrows".|
|Super old truck, American? I thought so as it was left hand drive.|
|A fairground ride.|
|Not many customers, this lady was waiting for some to arrive.|
|No idea what awaited customers in here.|
|Lots of dogs about, as you know I like photographing them when I'm out.|
|I've never liked roller coasters but might risk a ride on the "Cup & Saucer".|
|More dog treats.|
|I'm a vegetarian but found this sausage stall interesting.|
|From within we can see the hot charcoal burner. 26 degrees in the shade|
on that day by the way!
|Octopus stall? Don't know why!|
|There was a large Ferris Wheel on the prom and yes, I did have a ride on that.|
(Pictures taken on the wheel will be in another post, this post has too many pics already.)
|A stage for various performers throughout the weekend.|
|Local young people entertaining the visitors.|
|This lady videoing the performers.|
|And this chap.|
|Then he realised I was photographing him! He was very amused, nice chap.|
|These two stewards amused me as they "posed" outside "The lost boys" shop.|
|And this young lady steward gave me a wave and a smile.|
|The Ferris wheel with the site for the new RNLI station on the beach.|
At present all work stopped on this project as the main contractor went into liquidation.
|This little dog was resting in the shade and I was amused by it's juxtaposition to that sign!|
|Two very different forms of transport!|
