I'm sure foreign ferry arrivees must say, 'things can only get better '
Lucky it has a ferry to escape
I had cause to walk through Grimsby a few months back.
Oh dear.. it did look grim, although the bar we went to which was a docked ship I believe, was very nice.
Folk going to the ferry just go straight to ferry terminal. Those coming off the ferry just want to get on with their journey. So no-one stops so shops can't make a living so close. Just empty shop after empty shop.
The good thing is that you can get a fast train out in any direction.
An ambassador is an honest man sent to lie abroad for the good of his country.
Paul Theroux's 'Kingdom By The Sea' is a good read. Just his observations and conclusions made of the
British seaside town, thought provoking to get an outsiders viewpoint. Fair to say, his is a mainly negative one,
with some exceptions naturally.
I might be mistaken but even many British seem to hold the same negative outlook.
I know a lot of seaside places seem to attract more numbers than might be expected of the financially deprived members
of society. Not a lot of money to spend, areas get run down. Maybe if you're down on your luck it's a dream of a return to a happier time and place, when as a kid you would be taken to the seaside, could be part of the answer?
