I’ve left the boys skiing in Levi for a couple of days to explore the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park. . It’s been snowing for 2 days but just checked the view out of my window and it looks like it’s clearing to give a view of the fells, it’s -13 out there but I’m excited to get on the thermals and snow shoes and explore!! . . #tessabunney#pallasylläsnationalpark#finland#lapland
The first Open Exhibition @ryedale_folk_museum opens on Saturday 23rd Feb and includes work from over 50 artists inspired by the beautiful @northyorkmoors where I live. . . This image of the Lord Mayor’s Parade (part of the Kilburn Feast activities) is one of two photographs I will be showing.
Bob’s mince pie (not the Christmas kind!) . It was wild and windy down South Gare today so I was happy to drink tea and chat to Bob and Gilbert in their fisherman’s cabins for most of the afternoon getting the low down of the history of this special place and how to fish it! . . #tessabunney#cleveland#southgare
Digging for clams, Bran Sands, Cleveland. . Bumped into Jeff for the second time this week as I explore the Cleveland coastline. Interesting man who travelled all over the world in the merchant navy but eventually came back home to Teesside and goes fishing and grows dahlias and giant onions. . . #tessabunney#cleveland#southgare
Digging for lug worms, Bran Sands, South Gare, Cleveland. . . South Gare is a man-made area of reclaimed land and breakwater on the southern side of the mouth of the river Tees and home to Paddy’s Hole a small harbour constructed from solid blast furnace slag. . #tessabunney#cleveland#redcar#southgare#recce#lugworm
Exploring the Cleveland coastline today, I found myself at one of my favourite places - South Gare. It’s a man-made area of reclaimed land and breakwater on the southern side of the mouth of the river Tees and home to Paddy’s Hole a small harbour constructed from solid blast furnace slag and the 101 iconic green fishermen’s huts nestled in amongst the sand dunes. . Whiled away some time chatting to Buck who was fixing his boat and John and Jeff keeping warm in front of the stove in their hut overlooking Paddy’s Hole so called because of the many Irishmen who helped build the south Gare. . #tessabunney#cleveland#redcar#southgare#recce#fisherman
