Here's a great magazine that I came across while looking over some
magazines in Marylebone Station recently. It's a magazine that
celebrates everything about the British seaside. And this new September
issue definitely has a Cornish look about it.
The cover shows a picture of St Ives Harbour and features a story about
a London family who gave up life in the capital and moved to St Ives to run
There's also an item on beach hut owners along the Lincolnshire coast.
Each month the magazine takes a coastal walk somewhere on the British
coast and this month's walk is from Margate to Broadstairs.
There's lots of ideas given on where to go and stay along with some great
items on oceanic and seaside home interiors.
Apparently last months issue did an article on the revival of Dreamland
in the Kent resort of Margate.
What I like about the magazine is it's sense of optimism for the British
seaside as well as it's sense of nostalgia, and it shows when you see some
of the magazines past covers.
Some interesting evening sunsets from last week. And the season of
Summer is clearly moving on now as I'm having to look out of my window
more to the South West to get the best views.
Here's a picture I managed to take of the Moon in 2007 when we had
a Lunar Eclipse. This is when the Moon passes in front of the center
of the Earths shadow which creates a red effect on the planet's surface.
I've just been reading a blog post titled 'Get off your computer and
become a better blogger.' Apparently addicted bloggers can be online
for far too long, what with posting on their blogs, reading other blogs
as well as commenting on other blogs. It all sounds very time consuming.
And in the blog post I read it tells us to get off our computers if we're to
become better bloggers by actually going out into the world and
tasting life and experiencing things for ourselves which makes a lot
of sense to me.
But what often puzzles and baffles me is how many bloggers seem to
have the time to be able to post up several posts along with added texts
every day of the week like clockwork. And I suppose I was a victim to
that kind of addiction when I first started blogging in early 2007.
Right now I suppose you could say The Beauty Hunter is going through
another one of it's dry quiet patches and as always I'll often slow down
with posting. But then blogging is not what it is compared to 5 years ago
before Tumblr and all the other sites that have now taken over on the web.
Thankfully I do have lots of indoor hobbies and projects that I'm working
on. Right now I'm working on the water fountain feature. Although it looked
finished when I recently posted up pictures of it, I'm actually having to make a support/stand for it like you would for a sink. Then it will finally
become a feature in the corner of my room. Now there's a post I'm looking
forward to posting up. I've even fitted speakers into the side of the box
frame so that it can play sound effects like sounds of the forest with even
more running water as well as bird sounds. And a cd of the Japanese Koto
sounds very relaxing.

is still playing up a bit).
