Hello Everyone and thank you for calling in along your blog journey.
At Every Inchie Monday this week the theme is frog
Rivet, rivet to all of you from Freddie the Frog
Elizabeth and Bluebeard welcome all to their 'Tuesday T Day' and all you have to do is a drinks related post so what could be simpler. You meet the nicest people at this party and I am really enjoying getting to know them.
Happy T Day to all of you.
First of all I found another 20p mug at the car boot sale

The base. I didn't clean off the sticky bits yet
Now to a day out to forget.
Last weekend we needed to go somewhere quiet and away from hospital visiting and thinking about Vic's mum for a little while. We settled for Withersea that is down the coast from us and is a very quiet little place where not much ever happens.
We thought something was strange when the bus driver told us to get off the bus before the town and walk in as the bus station was closed. Why was the bus full of people and why were there people everywhere? Well there were 3 festivals on all at the same time. HELP! No buses back for 2 hours!
First festival bikers--enjoyed seeing that festival as most of them were my age and I used to be a biker chick in my teens.
Second festival was pirates and parrots-only saw one of those and his lady friend was somewhere he said.
Next was fairground stuff but nothing was working or giving rides. I think they open in evening.
None of the above frequent Withernsea usually.
An escape along the seafront was called for, it is such a lovely peaceful walk. No it isn't! They have shipped in huge diggers and piles of rocks to try and shore up the place as it is falling into the sea all the way along--as is most of our coastline. Too little to late
So what next. Well there is an inland light house? It has trips around it but last time we went it wasn't open week days so we never got to see inside. This time it was only open weekdays and this was the weekend so we still never got to see inside.

Two hours up so got the bus back to Hull to change buses and get one to go home.
Cup of tea first then a nice meal on Hull station in the revamped cafe.
It did us good even without the peace and quiet we were looking for.
Have a great day
Love Chrissie xx
