STARRY STARRY NIGHT
A dull day with an empty beach untill mid afternoon HE went off sailing .. To return 5 hours later ..I read ..not a sitting out day ..nothing much to report .. Didnt see anyone I knew ..took a few photos ..but that night HE got me out of bed to see the shooting stars ..brilliant …a star party on the the beach ..good tunes and shooting stars
A great night was had by one and all at the Squib Prize giving dinner and without any headache / hangover we packed Hetty up ..Thanked our carpark owner for turning a blind eye to our forbidden over night sleep on his land ..
fortunately we have known Griff for 20 years on and off ..and yes the carpark attendant has tried to shift us many times in the past to no avail so I think the blind eye is easier ..saying this we don’t abuse the situation and do buy a weekly parking ticket ..Sadly I can’t add the GPS as its not a valid sleepy spot …Emptied loo at the public toilets by the golf club ..as we use bio washing liquid instead of loo blue its perfectly acceptable.
A very quiet drive to Conwy I suppose as it was Saturday traffic would be heading to the beach not away from it..We had decided to spend the night ..arrived and our parking spot at the marina was occupied by a campervan who even had his leccy wire into the boat park..plugged in..I’m assuming he had a boat as well…if not how cheeky …J went to the pub in the marina to ask if it would be ok to park in their car park ..Yes was the answer as it didn’t belong to them but the Marina so in we went..found a quiet corner…We have eaten in the pub..The Mulberry Inn and had the worst food ever so decided never to darken their doors again..even slated em on trip adviser. My review on trip adviser but a refurbishment has been done..complete makeover ..looking good and I don’t hold grudges long ..After a walk to the beach we did eat there and all was well this time ..
The area around Conwy Marina is a bird sanctury ..an estuary at low tide full of birds and flowers ..boats wending their way up to the harbour and the weather was perfect if a little cloudy
Now off to the Wirrel.. The reason being we needed to find a sleepy spot for an upcoming sailing event ..West Kirby was the destination .. We found a couple of places to park up ..one by a church hall in Newton GPS COORDS 53.368284 -3.154147 and another in a pub car park ..The Cottage Loaf GPS COORDS 53.351516 -3.130882 We asked the landlord and he confirmed we could stay over night if we part took of his hospitality .. perfectly willing to do that ..Another place we had been told was a good over nighter was Wallesy Beach near to New Brighton GPS COORDS 53.434792 -3.073518 Perfect spot
After a wonderful sunset and a very quiet night parked up on the prom ..we woke to a scorcher of a day
Families out for the day
Next stop Crosby beach on Mersey side to have another look at the Gormley Art Instalation “Another Place”
An insight into the creation of this work of art came from a fellow blogger .. I’m sure he wouldn’t be offended if I shared his thoughts on Another Place by Antony Gormley
