Where is your happy place?

I mean geographically, so none of your filth!

Anywhere I can be with my family. Soon I hope.

Water Lane near me. Appropriately enough it has a stream shallow enough to walk through at the end. It's just very tranquil.

It doesn't look much here as the photos were taken in January, it looks a good deal more leafy at the moment.

I’d go for either Whitby, or Granville in Normandy.

There a rock I sit on while looking out to sea.

A number of places on Exmoor, where I'm reminded of the imperminance of man, and the relative permenance of the countryside.

On quiet days, where there might be no sound but for a dog barking, miles away.

Sorry - premature posting!

Bits of Dartmoor, the Lake District, the North York moors and Snowdonia. Clearly hills are a theme.

But if I have to pick just one then Dovedale and Thorpe Cloud.

That’s still not one. But they’re right next to each other and walks over one then along the other or vice versa featured in my happiest childhood holidays.

Is there a coffee shop there that sells Effie, Cordy?

Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Oxton village & Bidston Hill, Neuilly including the Bois Boulogne and Jardin d'Acclimatation, the Mersey ferry in the direction of the Three Graces. The Wirral coastal path looking across the Dee to Wales.

Not London.

The Meare at Thorpeness.

A Greek island, either Lipsi or Tilos.

Sitting on the dolmen above Manorbier Bay.

Home.

Lipsi

Where I was due to go on 18 May.

TableTopJoe - 07 May 2020 22:56:12 (#18 of 72)

And then an ice cream at Parkgate, Kverlertak? One of mine too.

JennyRad - 07 May 2020 22:56:23 (#19 of 72)

Durham, on any of the bridges watching the Wear.

People are a lot more important, and I'm very happy in Croydon. But for places, without any human connection at all, the bridges over the river in Durham.

My sympathies, Shadders. It is a gem. I know you’re another ex-Laskarina traveller. It’ll still be there when you start flying again. Where were you going to stay? Strangely, I have a good client who spends half the year in his house there. We were each the first person we’d met who also knew it. He always reminds me of this, and invites me to use his house. One day I’ll take him up on it.
