In Pictures: Preston Caribbean Carnival

It’s annual tradition that has been taking place in Preston for over 40 years and this year we even experienced some Caribbean style weather to accompany this fantastic event.

This post is all about the photographs but a big thank you to all those who work so hard to arrange the event and make some superb costumes.  Here are the pictures. Click on any pictures to enter the slideshow view.

Photos from Whitby

I’ve been a bit remiss with my blog posts recently.  I really need to catch up a bit and so here are a few photos I took on a recent visit to Whitby.

It’s a great little town on the Yorkshire coast with plenty to explore from the sea views to the narrow streets and then of course there is also the historic Whitby Abbey.

There’s a good vibe around town and it gets busy at weekends but it’s a place I would definitely return to again.

Here are the pics…
