Holiday Blues

Guess the location:

25m from sandy beach, east coast
Fine view of 30 offshore turbines, of which only 27 are working
10m from four lary Essex families who only break out the beer after the bar & excessively-loud disco shut at 01:30 every night
Caravan lacking in equipment and cleanliness

Wish you were here?
Wish I wasn't.

The good news?
There are only three more nights to endure.

  1. Ha ... !

    I saw the title of your posting and thought "Ha ... that's me!" Having read your piece it's not my blues though; I'm at home having decided to sit out August. Sorry, it's not schadenfreude but I do feel better having read your post.

    Wonder what the Queen thinks about the wind turbines on her seabed - long may they reign to fill her coffers no doubt [ Off with his head! ]

    How about Great Yarmouth?
    I've only passed through onec a long time ago, but that was trauma enough!

  3. Eeek! Forgot to add that I'd thought Caister. Saw thirty of those wretched things off Walney Island recently - only two were working at the time.

    Not good, Stef. Still - only two nights left now, eh?

    Well, we're home at last.

    To be fair the holiday itself was good, spoiled only by the neighbours, the quality of accommodation and the view therefrom.

    Expect some pics soon, after I've worked up some enthusiasm.

    Caister-on-Sea, just in case you were wondering. Top marks to Brian and to Geoff!

    We just had a lovely holiday at our caravan on the Lleyn. Only 5 vans on the site and Cockneys not welcome.
    Still haven't caught a bloody fish out of the sea yet.

  7. BG! says:

    I'll have to nip over and show you how to do the sea-fishing malarkey, Mike.

    On second thoughts, maybe I shouldn't, maybe I should send Chris. While on holiday I forked out £108 for the four of us to go out on a sea-fishing trip, Chris caught a small Smooth-hound which had to be returned, me and the girls blanked.
