It is my daughters birthday on the 13th of March, three days after my own birthday, I always send her a little something and this year I decided to send her something a little special. So, I bought her a couple examples of "Whitby Jet"
We spent a few hours walking round this lovely old fishing village come town., famous for its Abbey, with its Dracula connections.
It was also the place where Captain James Cook set sail from on his adventures of discovery.
Originally JET was given to the fishermen of the village by their wives before venturing out into the wild and unforgiving North Sea.
It was considered to have magical properties and provide protection against evil.
So if you are looking for something a little different for a present for a loved one, then look no further than
The obligatory "Fish and Chips" were delicious and the hungry seagulls thought the same, as they eyed them in anticipation of a free meal.
After eating my fill from the now nearly empty bag, I fed the scraps to the birds.
Have a wonderful week people and don’t forget…"if it don’t change it’ll stay as it is."
