Simo-92 I like this place when many of the residents bring their parties onto the beach and every one is made welcome. Just a few drinks, some food and a friendly smile will get you in every time
Rodríguez Prati--Always a pleasure to meet you here Edmundo. Since your last mail, the temperature has see-sawed from near Arctic conditions to a mini heat-wave. I don't mind the cold, in fact I can handle the cold a great deal better than the heat ;>)
mauricia--thank you so much for your visit and nice compliment. You are most welcome Mauri ;>)
白云黑土--Well observed baiyunheitu, many people have noticed the big tidal range which can be greater than 6.5 metres! Sometimes, the sea spills into the houses!
peszao--I am very grate for your kind appraisal, your visit and nice compliment, thank you ;>)
阿鵬 (w☺rap☺ng) in HK--I must confess to my liking of this town which has been my home for most of my 68 years of life!! Many thanks for your generous appraisal wo-ra-pong
My kind regards to each of you ;>)
"my home for most of my 68 years of life!!" Say that again...., Jim.
O_o' You look so young and healthy, so is your mom. I thought you were like 53-55 only in the picture! Congratulations! I wish I would be as healthy as you are when I reach your age. (Not easy these days when food and environment are synthetic.)
Best wishes to the U.K. ~ 阿鵬 (w☺rap☺ng)
What a beautiful place and photo!!!!
That lovely soaring dark bulk of the jetty thingumajig keeps making me think that this whole higgledypiggeldy sea front is an enormous Spanish galleon. It's a delightful trick to my eye which I can't help but look at over and over again!
Very best wishes,
《阿鵬》B@ngk☺k---Greetings wo-ra-pong ;>) There is a theory, based on strong evidence, that people of my generation are much healthier than the general population because of the stringent diet, imposed on me and my peers, during the constraints of the second world war when strict rationing of food ensured that we ate the healthy option and in modest quantities!! So perhaps Mr Hitler's only positive legacy was to give me good health in my old age!! I still eat too much for my own good.
Laurentiu Mitu---I have to admit a certain love affair for the old place Lorenzo, I'm glad that you think it is a nice place too!!
Susan @llen...it takes only a little imagination to visualise this scene in the 18th century Sue!! Whitby was a port of great importance in those days. The sons of many of its families took to the sea at an early age. Merchant sea-men were the best available, and could be found on many commercial ships throughout the world!! Young lads were Press Ganged into the Royal Navy, many of them went on to be good Captains, hard, god fearing men, courageous and brave!! The town was geared up to provide the shipping industry with every need and ships chandlers were commonplace!! Rope and sail makers, splicers, carpenters, block and tackle makers, turners, blacksmiths, caulkers, hauliers, die makers,--the list is endless!! One can imagine the hustle and bustle and smell, as men and women toiled day and night to earn their living and well paid they were too> The tradition continues to this day but the shipping from here is no longer!! Whitby captains still command some of the finest ships afloat!
Kind regards to you all ;>)
Yourself included there Jim me lad!!!! ;-)

Best wishes Micha

I am one and the same >| Micha |< ;>) this is my only gallery.. Heaven forbid!! I struggle to answer all my mail with just the one gallery...hehe! ;>))
Yes, but you change your nick name. What means your new name? I looked in wikipedia and found some infos.
Hi! >| Micha |<, ACRONYM has many definitions, which is the reason why I changed my nickname!! perhaps it reflects my ever changing moods!! The definition I like best, because it is a reflection on my present mood, is the one that states that an acronym is anAlphabetically Coded Reminder of Names You Misremember!! A contradiction in terms perhaps!!--- Now Micha, are you now any the wiser??? ;>)))
Sounds very ZEN.....I think I must do it..ILMAO
