When traveling between Southport and Stockton-on-Tees I generally take a shortcut through Sedbergh towards Kirkby Stephen. This route goes through the Yorkshire Dales National Park – it’s a very pleasant drive. As I always go on business, I don’t have time to stop and enjoy the view, but this time I took my camera and started early(ish). Although I didn’t have time to veer from the beaten path, I did stop a few times and take a few snaps. To me this is typical British scenery. When the sun is shining there isn’t a better place to be than Britain.

I had to take a 6 hour round trip to Stockton-on-Tees yesterday. The route I take includes a shortcut through here:
I can’t remember off the top of my head what the place is called, but will post more images and details tomorrow…
Another one from Tarragona. This was the view from the city, overlooking the harbour and bay.
Park up at the car park by Royal Birkdale Golf Club, go through the gate and down the path. Fight your way through the overgrown bushes, Royal Birkdale on one side and Hillside Golf Club on the other. As you walk you notice that the dogs being walked back to the car park are rather wet. Eventually you come to a clearing in the bushes with a pond. This is where the dogs get wet, this is where their owners stop to contemplate life for a few moments before turning back to the realities of the day. This is one small haven in Birkdale Sand Dunes.

I was only on this beach for five minutes one evening, but the light was nice, and the clouds added some interest to the sky.
