Yesterday dawned bright and sunny so we decided to go to Saltburn it's half an hour's drive away along the coast and a place we'd not visited before.
As we drove into Saltburn there was a church on the right and grazing in the grounds was a ram!! Isn't he gorgeous??? I jumper out of the car top take some photo's and as a Lady approached he jumped up and come running over to us.
She told me "Bertie" look's out for her passing by each day and she always brings him a treat which he looks forward to. In the background can you see the sign saying "collector's fair" so in we went, now sometimes you find things and sometimes you don't, but we had a good old rummage about and I found a couple of new "old" noddy books a ladybird book some lovely buttons, and an album full of first day issues and christmas air mail letters as well as stickers and pegs, didn't I do well? Mr Lucey bought 2 Paul Smith rabbits for our collection and a few other bits.
We passed some realy lovely apartments on the way to the beach
how lovely to live in something as nice as this,
and this was the view from the top, it reminds me of when we were in Cornwall a couple of years ago.
Then we saw the little ticket office for the tram that takes you up and down the cliff
this is the view from inside
it had beautiful stained glass windows
and everything had just been refurbished and given a new lick of paint for the season
there was another ticket office at the bottom I'm sure all this could be used in a film set.
There were donkey's on the beach for the kiddies to ride on, and we walked along the pier and had the obligitory bag of chips in newspaper
we went along to the woodland centre where there was swings and climbing frames and a train
the smell from the hyacinths in the Italian garden was divine and the diners in the tea rooms spilled out onto the lawn with their scones and tea in the warm sunshine
we shall certainly be visiting again but I must remember to wear comfortable shoes!!
Love Lucey xx
