Same with me but Whitby instead of St Ives. Despite living in Yorkshire all my life I never went to Whitby until I was 32. Love the place.

 

Went to Whitby one Easter weekend and such was the freezing, wet weather, we turned back when on our way to the ruins. Been again since and love the place. I also love Seahouses further up the coast. One area of outstanding beauty is the Trough of Bowland.

I was at CPL down Scully Lane earlier. I've had plenty of my sparks in my life this afty.

 

Forgot to ask them if the yard lights were still working.

Been working there this past two or three weeks. Ken, the manager, was good enough to lend me his Hull FC passes so I could get some cheap Manc weekend tickets for some pals.

 

Have a chat about RL next time you're down there, he's the bloke that looks like he's trying to smuggle out several sacks of coal down his shirt.

Whitby's great, but can get very crowded. Ditto Robin Hood's Bay, ever since it became much easier to get to with the main road. We used to get there driving over the Moors, where you got the completely surreal sight of the giant golf balls at RAF Fylingdales, slowly appearing over the horizon.

I love the hole of Horcum. I used to take the kids walking down it and then on to Levisham: an eerie but stunning experience, a bit like Arthur Con Doyle's lost world.

We used to holiday in one of the camping coaches on the NYMR at Goathlnd. It was wonderful. You got free travel on the railway and te coaches were converted dining cars. Happy days.

The warning station at Menwith Hill was much the same. Female protest groups lived for some years nearby in run-down caravans, whilst protesting against the US who leased the site. Years later, other protesters were fighting for the giant golf balls to stay when under the threat of the demolition ball!

Wiring summat up incorrectly often does it for me.

 

Comments like this remind me why I love you!

 

 

 

Things that put a spark in my life:

 

My brother. He has grown into a wonderful person against the odds and he makes me very proud.

My friends. If someone is my friend it means the world to me and I hold them dear.

My cats, they make my house a real home.

 

Walking in the sea, at 2am in the middle of winter. No other feeling makes me feel alive quite like that.

The wind as felt from St. Mary's Church yard on the cliff-top in Whitby.

Sitting in St. Mark's Square, drinking whiskey, on a warm night.

 

The epiphany moment of finding something, or having an idea that is crucial to my research.

 

The look in someone's eye at that moment when they couldn't possibly be any more in love with you. I remember that being sublime.

 

:)

Reading this thread I realise that nothing really gets me 'up' anymore. I enjoy my life but I can't remember the last time I had that feeling of true joy, like when you were a child. Probably seeing Explosions in the Sky play live, but I had a little, ahem, help there.

Late afternoon/evening around sunset, early September, perfect sky, Larmer Tree Gardens, small intimate festival - was magical.

Fleet Foxes, Steve Earl and Tallest Man on Earth were also on the bill.
