north vs south

I’m at the south coast today for a meeting at work. For some reason I never sleep well in hotels so at 7am I went for a walk along the beach. I was amazed to discover hundreds of people up and about doing various pre-work things. There were a group of women exercising at a self styled boot camp, joggers, dog walkers, cyclists (and lots of good cycle paths away from roads).

There was a sign on the lawns that didn’t say “no ball games” it said “please be careful, if your ball goes onto the road it may cause an accident” – how polite.

There was a specially designated bin for BBQ’s and a sign that said “be careful, may be hot”

The whole feeling was one of a pleasant atmosphere and generally all round warm fuzzyness.

I leave to return to staffordshire this evening, its something of a contrast.
