Hello Paul,

I found your photograph very sad. It has nothing to do with the quality of the photograph, which is excellent, but from the disposition of the porpoise.
It appears starved whilst trying dejectedly to drag itself back to the security of the sea!
The other pieces of art are not so traumatic.
I find it very interesting that such pieces of art are situated in the sand dunes. (My supplementary thoughts were do they get vandalised? Are they respected? Sadly there seems to be a trend for some to vandalise features left for the enjoyment of others. I'm sure the 'oldie, washed up' inhabitants would not be responsible but, maybe in summer ...)'

In answer to your question, I can speak about the people in my locality. We have had quite a number of people moving to the north from London and the surrounding area. As you note, regional accents set them apart, but northerners are particularly sociable and these people have quickly become part of the population. Because I work a couple of hours as a volunteer in our Community Shop, I get an opportunity to meet and chat with many people. In general (the term is 'off-cum-dens not washed ashore) the people quickly integrate and volunteer for community projects, just like the locals.

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Default To holmertz: Wycoller's Clapper Bridge

Thank you for your critique, Gert.

There are no details of the girl's death, though it is a well known story.
I would suspect that she hit her head on the stone bridge as she fell.

It is quite a narrow bridge to cross on a bicycle but I have seen it happen. It takes great confidence or foolhardiness to attempt such a crossing! Maybe I would have found it less dangerous as a youngster!

Have a lovely Monday, Bev :-)
