Thanks Graeme... It's amazing how many people I meet that know the place and have family in the area. I've not been back for a very long time, but would like to re-visit old haunts again.

Why is Gran's house always so much more attractive?  After my mother decided to become a GI bride, I lived with my Gran for several years and loved it.  Your usual masterful shots.

 

Cheer OND... Living in Berkshire, as we did then, going to stay with 'nana Lancing' as I called her, right by the sea was such a treat.  It seemed a very long way, sat in the back of my dads old Ford Anglia, sliding around on shiny, sweaty, vinyl seats for two hours plus... me and my sister moaning most of the way :lol:

Dang these are some nice shots!  I wish I had TE like this for Atlanta, Boston, or Idaho.

 

 

Cheer Jack :0  One day, you may have it... it would be amazing to have the whole world in TE, impractical as that would be currently. In the mean time, and apart from PNW which is looking utterly stunning, I'd love to see some other European countries and Japan.

Sweet pics! Always great to see comments from someone familiar with the area. Very impressive scenery.

 

Thank Bob... This scenery data is much more recent than my last visit, so it's great to see not much has changed down there.

Not anymore, sadly. My heart says yes but my wallet says no! 

 

A great pity it such an expensive thing to do... at least you got to do it for a while, and who knows what the future holds.

See the tangle of rusting metal just off the viewing tower?

 

That was once the magnificent West Pier which amongst other things was here some scenes in 'Oh What a Lovely War' was filmed in 1968.

 

My pal and I 13 years old used to get on a train at Clapham Junction to fish there train fare 8 shillings and 6d return. 45p.
