Head In The Clouds

03Aug09

We’re off work for a week, in a fortnight or so, and the first thing planned is a cloud spotting event on Sunday 16th August at the National Trust’s Tattershall Castle with Ian Loxley of the Cloud Appreciation Society. Ian Loxley is known for his many fine cloud based photographs including the legendary ‘Cumulopiggussextoleggus’.

Lincolnshire it seems is becoming the county to watch clouds in – perhaps no great surprise given the wide never ending skies – with the opening of the world’s first ‘Cloud Bar’ on the beach at Anderby Creek. Officially sanctioned by the Cloud Appreciation Society the Bar was opened in April of this year on a day wholly free of clouds.

Whilst we’re out that way I may suggest a detour to Louth – after all a town that boasts both John Shuttleworth and Robert Wyatt as residents must be worth investigating. And the piece below from the Observer at the weekend surely seals it – “It’s a steady place, where old men wear straw panamas without affectation, and you feel a day without at least two scones with strawberry jam is a day wasted”.
