Portland of old, and the modern view

A stunning sunset over Chesil beach here on Portland. Taken a couple of years ago.
Just because… πŸ˜‰
No white coats sent round, so it’s all good.
Did get a few interesting comments about the latest few post though.

But it does seem like you lot like the Portland post more, yeah the webstats tell me that. πŸ˜‰

Can’t imagine why? 😯

What seems to interest people most from what I see on Facebook groups and such is …

The web of strong bonds that bind us…


I don’t like to take myself too seriously.

How can I with that face?! πŸ˜‰

But sometimes you have take some things serious, like the dreams I had, I knew lessons were there somewhere, it was telling me something. Something important. Just didn’t know what. The lesson at 9 was the start of it.

Then I had this most strange dream yet and it seemed very clear to me what it meant, what it was telling me. As I said in the last post regarding this situation it would be hard to explain this strange dream clearly.

I will try though. . .

Get on your bike…

I’ll get onto the rest of the story I spoke of the last couple of post, but needed a break from that for a day, else my brain fries!Β  πŸ˜‰

The above was taken with a friends phone, I just had to take it after seeing the bike propped like that down Church ope.

I wish I had the phone I have now back then, I can see so many times I missed a good picture opportunity, due to old phone not being able to take a decent pic, so much rust out there, for some peoples rust fix πŸ˜‰ … so much beauty, a camera opens your eyes to the beauty all round.

Plus I would have some more images of the bike and these great backdrops. Pictures of fun memories made which IΒ  could keep for myself too… some good laughs and bonkers moments, can’t beat a bike ride, get to odd places on a bike and it can be a whole new experience of the places we live at. πŸ˜‰

So a little break from the latest post done… and what do I have for you?

Strange things, or was I going crazy…

I talked in the last post of the strange experience I had at 9 years old, which at the time seemed too much to process. That changed as I grew up but it was never clear till much later in life.

But much like the image above, it become a signpost for me, shaped my path of being. It gave me a little mindfulness in life. Never easy to always be in that state though. I wish it was at plenty of times in life.

Don’t we all? πŸ˜‰

So, a couple of months ago, something strange happened…

A lesson for life at 9 while stuck down a pot hole. . .

Undersized boat

That name suggest a lack of confidence πŸ˜€

I hinted at something recently about an experience I had when I were just a wee lad of 9 and I fell down a pothole.

Daft, I know…

But it was something I didn’t talk of, to anyone, I probably told my mum when I were alot older but that was about it, during my childhood and youth I said nothing… at all.

It became something I grappled with for so long in my own head.Β  In silence.

Recently though, I have had some odd dreams of it all, probably 5 or 6 weeks of it now, I told parents about it when I were there for a Sunday roast, I have not told anyone else this other then parents and one other person.

It also triggered some real vivid memories for me, and that lead to some more odd dreams which actually having thought about it all seems to tie in with that experience I had…

Very profound looking back on it. πŸ™‚ Scared me at the time though.

It was odd …

Portland sunsets and it’s amazing views

Portland, a place like nowhere else.

The jewel of the Jurassic coast, It really is. the whole coastline is amazing and somewhere everyone in the UK should see, and visitors from elsewhere in the world of course. πŸ˜‰

The coastal path is pretty amazing to walk or cycle, hard work but great fun and the main bonus is it’s good for you. πŸ˜‰

Mainly though, it’s them views.

No surprise so many artist and such moved to the south in the past so often, we do have some amazing light to work with.

I think the best view you can have on Portland is simply the stunning sunsets we have from this vantage point.

They are so good that…
