Last month I wrote of the retaliatory raid (or Baedeker Blitz or Baedeker raids) by the German air force on English cities in response to the bombing of the city of Lübeck . On 29 April 1942 the city of York was targeted. The devastation was huge. Here is a short film about the raid:
On a happier note, today being Sunday, following sleep over Saturday, we decided to take ours and all the extra children to the beach for a breakfast bar be-que of bacon and eggs. We took one car, and the rest of us rode bikes. This is my bike, a vintage repro bike I received from my lovely husband for my birthday last November.
And the road to the beach. Did you know I could ride and take photos at the same time?!
The cheery sign once you get there.
Yes, there are crocodiles~we didn’t see any though. And even though it was low tide, the kids had a great time, climbing on the storm water drain…..
And the dog and I found treasures
Hope your weekend was good,
