Photographer's Note

As maybe you have heard, two people were killed, dozens were injured and thousands of residents were rescued or fled from their homes on Thursday as the UK was battered by powerful winds and seaside communities were threatened by the worst storm surge for more than 60 years. On that day I was travelling up north from Birmingham. There was no wind but it was a bit chaos on the road and I spent almost the whole day in buses or bus stations. And next day I went to Middlesbrough to visit Mariusz :). Again, I had trouble with the bus, it didn't stop:(. I had to take a train.
But then it was a beautiful weekend. Not far from M'bro there are two interesting resorts that I already wanted to see during my previous trip to England. I knew Saltburn from many photos made by Kath, aka feather, who lives there. So, I was very excited to see the places with my own eyes and camera. And I had the opportunity to meet Kath and her husband Rob. Together with Mariusz we went with them for a very pleasant walk. Kath is no longer on TE but she is very active on Photofolia and Facebook, so it was a mini FB-PF-TE-meeting. In Saltburn, there were still seen some damages caused by the storms and the famous tram and pier were closed.
This is the Saltburn Cliff Lift, one of the world's oldest water-powered cliff lifts. Not specially wise of me to post this photo when there are better ones made by Mariusz or Kath, but I don't care, more important is for me this travelogue.
