We are still here !

Hi Everyone
Not sure what's been posted on the blog front ? Ive had internet connection issues most of the week. Ive also been trying post from my ipod when all else fails. Such as life ! Everything is mixes up and I can't syncronise.

However, life moves on .......... yesterday, we visited the Pannett Art Gallery and Museum in Whitby. Lots of interesting stuff, including a big section on Jet ! We didn't have enough time to see everything so we are going back today. More on Jet when I have it.

In the meantime, here are a few views of Whitby that failed to make the blog earlier this week.

These images give a sense of Whitby Old Town. It's always very busy at this time of year because it's Goth Week here. Lots of people make a huge effort to dress in amazing costumes and parade around the town. I didn't manage to get any Goths in my photos but they are definitely in town.

Thanks for reading.

Discovery - Jet

Hi Everyone
Lovely bright day again, been on a great run and just finished Brunch ( too late for lunch and breakfast today).
Today we are into Whitby again. This time we are visiting Art Galleries with coffee and cake.
Big news :
Yesterday, I came across some shops/workshops making Jet jewelry. Not usually my thing - so I thought ! However, I spoke to a guy making lovely contemporary designs and looked at some of the 'raw' Jet. It's very much like
polymer clay ! I bought some small pieces and will make something with silver.
Here is few images :

I cant quite believe the stuff is available and on the beach ( if you know what to look for)

Thanks for reading.
