Seaside Snaps

05Jul19

According to this recent piece in The Independent, Hunstanton is the 9th most popular seaside town in 2019. The cynic in me suggests that the locations listed are probably in reasonable proximity to a Best Western hotel, given that they are responsible for the research, but I’m sure that can’t possibly be the case. However […]


If you’ve missed Speechification Vol.001 and Vol.002 then further context can be found elsewhere. I won’t repeat myself for a third time because that may alienate the few people who still pay an (intentional) occasional visit.

Earlier this week I got to see The Goob (over at The Luxe in Wisbech which itself comes highly recommended).
