Daughter no 1 and I have just had a Grand Day Out. This was a whole family effort, although there were just the two of us on the expedition . Plans had to be made in the tradition of Youth hostelling, Voyages to the Antarctic, Ordering schedules, Acquiring provisions, Leaving a secure base to return to , with beloved safe, fed and near the TV controls , a meal to await return .
Son in law @mrcravenracont, daughter @ImogenWormald , and assorted grandsons and nephews have not deserted twitter for Instagram completely. Son in law is always finding me interesting people to follow, and all of us claim to have first found @PoetDeanWilson, who finds a Pebble of the Day.
Daughter first found Wrecking Ball Press @wbphull and associated bookshop in the Hepworth Arcade on a sojourn around Hulls Old Town, but I claim to have been the first person in the immediate family to have used Twitter, when @simonrudiger set me up to run our @FileyParish account in 2009.
I happily ran @Filey_UK from 2009 too, but was able to share the running of it with Tracey Roberts @fileyford, about 10 years ago when Carer Duties became more time consuming.
It doesn't not surprise me that @PoetDeanWilson has 12.8 K Followers. Filonians have many more pebbles to discover than the beachcombers of Withernsea, but most post pictures of the beach , and these for me are not as entertaining , creative and otherworldly as the pebbles. Photos of Filey Old and New , the highly successful Facebook group started by our wonderful plumber and friends shows Filey only , and I want to go further .
Son in law first saw the Exhibition At Withernsea Lighthouse Museum dropped casually into the twittersphere. Deans Pebbles inspired @k_j_turner to craft a quilt , and its just beautiful, on show with Pebbles and Photos .
So the Grand Day out was planned before the Lighthouse closes for the season .Last chance is 24th October 2021.
Ive known Withernsea all my life, Aunty Mabel and Uncle Gordon lived in Bannister street , until the railway was closed and they had to move to Brough so they could commute to Hull .
Deans Poems , and I have Take me up the Lighthouse , include the Poem
IS THE POEM ABOUT VIENNESE WHIRLS , JUST FOR MY SON WHO LOVES THEM !
This poetry book comes with a warning , as my daughter said , Its a bit rude Mum !
