‘Tall’ is a relative, isn’t it? Seen from the cliff tops in Saltburn, this offshore wind farm looks small and inoffensive. Quite pretty, in fact, as the sunlight catches the blades. Let’s have a walk along the sea front at Redcar, to take a closer look.
I used to hate being tall and gawky when I was at school. Nor did I ever achieve tall and elegant in later life. But I’ve always been tall.
So I do have a certain sympathy with Redcar’s Vertical Pier. It’s far from elegant, but it’s tall and…. interesting, would you say?
If you were wondering what I did with the rest of my Monday, after my walk Through the Valley at Saltburn, the answer’s here. I’ve long intended to climb the Vertical Pier at Redcar. It only required a short detour, and you know how I like a view.
I’m hoping that Paula will enjoy it too. She likes a little something different for her Thursday’s Special. This week’s subject is Tall.
