21st November 2015 Linton Falls Walk

Angela, Geoff and I decided to take a walk into  Grassington today for two reasons. A coffee and a snack in Coffee eco and to check out a pub which serves Sunday Roast for tomorrow.

We walked along the River Wharfe from Grassington bridge to Linton Falls first. The river level had receded since I came on my own last week and when standing on the bridge the sound of water thundering underneath for some can be quite scary.

We crossed the bridge and walked back into Grassington along the road and managed to get a seat in the cafe for our lunch. When Angela and I came in last week they were giving out free chips! Unfortunately not today!

After lunch we walked around Grassington looking for a pub that did Sunday Roast. Fortunately we met a local man who was very helpful and pointed us towards The Foresters Arms apparently the locals and the rugby club use it. The decision was made.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
