Time to Reflect

By oll1e
Sorry i have not been on here much in the past few weeks .My step Father passed away on the 11/12/11 in Australia and even though i knew that it was coming .It hit me really hard ,but things are getting a little easier esp when i think of the great times we had .With many thanks to a few friends on here and also locally for their kind words ,cards and support.
His father was a miner and his Mum looked after him and his sister Eleanor,they had no electricity in the village or flush toilets!!!
The mining village was about 4 miles from Amble and overlooked Druridge bay.There were no roads and you had to walk or get a lift on a horse and cart to the nearest town which was Amble .
I know that he would have loved this pic of Runswick bay bathed in the first light of the day.As he loved the sea,moors and countryside.
Hope that you all have a lovely Christmas and New yearSmile .
Please view large if you have time
