Windy Worthington Lakes
I think somebody's ashes must have been scattered on the bank in that spot, because Ive notices different plants and flowers growing there over the years.
It could be a scene from the Lake District.
Nice pic. I love a windy day.
Brr time to make my coal fire and drink more sherry.
Veronica, it could also be
One of the dark, brooding, Broads of Norfolk !
Toast mi o butty Garry.
Oh! To see those big brooding skies of Norfolk, once seen never forgotten Helen...
Ok DTease, toast coming up and sherry later, you can't beat toast from a coal fire, is younique nothing taste like it.
Is coal still available in Britain ?
I remember we had coal fires in my parental home in the years just after the World War2. It always felt cosey.
Best wishes to you all in Wigan.
Reminds me of the night, more early morning, when we slept Davy Crockett style on Windermere's far shore, and how we'd been woken by what appeared to be a ghostly galleon heading our way. It shone lights of every hue and gave 'music with a synthy beat' - we presumed the journey to be 'a Yuppie kind of Do'. Just thought I'd mention it. Anyway, I'm not sure from which direction the Worthington wind had come, but it reminds me of the saying ' Wind from the north the fish come forth. Just thought I'd mention this, as well. Thanks for the photo.
This is were my husband used to take our sons fishing when they were young.Happy days.6am at weekends.
Alan that was the time just after the war, when almost everyone had a coal fire and to heat the oven and hot water. Brill.
One little problem is making the dam thing on a cold and frosty morning.
Garry, we had what they called "An all-night burner". You damped the fire down with the ashes before going to bed and in the morning all it needed was a bit of coal, the shovel, and a sheet of the Daily Mirror in front to get it going again.
The old broadsheet Wigan Observer with the shovel was great.
I hear coal and wood burners are the trent today.
