I'm just propelling it back to the top!
Hmmm, when did it close? Last November we took refuge from the deluge in there.
Don't be too disheartened by the weather forecast.
We were away for a week in May and the forecast was grim virtually every day, with near monsoons and roaring winds predicted.
We forced ourselves to go out in it though - after all, we were on holiday.
Here are some of the pics I took:
Closed in 2015 but exciting news - it appears to have reopened and has had a revamp - perhaps its time for another visit!
I think the cheap flights bit puts folk off. It means to put it bluntly, the serious possibility of pissed up idiots misbehaving on those 2 to 3 hour cheap flights. Having some drunken moron asking you for a fight or threatening to open the plane's door would put me off flying on 'cheap flights'.
They are certainly not under selling it!
"I honestly believe it’s now one of the premier tourist attractions in Cumbria and a fantastic new place to go in the town."
We're in Cornwall and it's been raining since we got here. No great surprise.....it's Cornwall after all. It's been a bit chilly as well
with a north wind. I went and bought a large bag of coal.
It could be a lot worse.
Just been scanning the weather forecast for tomorrow and there's a possibility of a dry spell later in the afternoon (only for an hour)
I'll be waiting eagerly for it and will be out front door like and a scalded cat to get a few miles in on the bike lol
Dredge them in egg, and then in bread crumbs.
Deep fry in oil until golden brown, and serve while hot.
Classic Escargot -
Let your snails/slugs purge themselves in a container of damp lettuce for 24 hours.
Bring one cup of water or white wine to a boil in a large saute pan, and pour in 2 cups of snails.
Deep fried banana slugs
I'm thinking about holidaying in Clitheroe. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g503937-Activities-Clitheroe_Lancashire_England.html I saw a pub in the town that offers 'very reasonable' B&B and an evening meal. Imagine the stress free travel there and back, No airport delays and other such hassle, like drunken morons. I simply put my suitcase in my car and i'm there (and back home) in 15 minutes!
Don't knock it 'til you try it.
I saw the slugs in tomato sauce bit. Maybe in a creamy carbonara sauce, but bitter tomato sauce...yuk!!
Where's yer sense of adventure. Those wide open spaces, waiting to be explored.*
*Should the rain stop..
