Costa del Kettering
Considering Wicksteed Park is on our doorstep, we don’t take advantage of its facilities perhaps as much as we could. Certainly, if you’re not into train rides, zip wires, pirate ships and the like, there’s still plenty to enjoy – the lake area is particularly nice, and with its £3 million Heritage Lottery Grant, it now sports a beach (sort of!). Yes, really!
Although when we got there, it was a much smaller area than I imagined – about half a dozen deck-chair capacity at most – and no sign of any donkeys! Still, you don’t often see ‘Kettering’ and ‘Beach’ in the same sentence, so it was worth a look!
Then it was off to the main event – the other easily-walkable venue – The Vines, at Barton Hall – and it didn’t disappoint. This was a perfect way to spend a Sunday (after a hard day on the beach!)
I know my Plaice!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
