Holidays - Weekly Competition Aug/Sept 2016

Chat Thread

With the Bank Holiday next Monday I think a two week competition might be best. Anything to do with Holidays so, the choice is wide.

No restrictions on PP.

Pictures to be taken between now and Sunday 4th September 2016, 23:59.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59pm Monday 5th September 2016.
Poll will be up Tuesday 6th September 2016.
Winner to be announced Saturday 10th September 2016.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to

Post a topic on the Sunday (or sooner) following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

Photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie Saturday xx to Sunday xx

Setting of today for the Yorkshire Moors. One night in Glaisdale (Beggars Bridge) and one night in Robin Hood's Bay. This time I should be able to come up with a picture.

On holiday we abhor resorts. We like traditional Spanish villages, quaint country cottages and local fayre. This was taken one sunny afternoon when we had stopped in a local bar for a beer and a nibble after a walk. Bread (pan), cheese (queso) and a beer (cervesa) with green olives (aceitunas) rounded off the afternoon perfectly.

A simple but engaging holiday activity, catching crabs.

I actually said to my better half when we were at Egton show I knew somebody living around here. I will be back later, because we loved certain areas. I think we are planning to go to Chopgate and stay in the pub there ran by a German fellow. Allegedly he has German Beer and German food in the restaurant. Not a big lover of either, but it is certainly different! Will let you know next time more in advance.

I was at Egton show as well with wifey and grandson. Only took a handful of snaps.  You had good weather for your visit and the heather out in full bloom for you.
