I want to talk about the town separate from the concert. although I would not have been here had it not been for. After saying  Hello they say “Did you know this is where they filmed Last of the Summer Wine?” I know that.And it was one of those cozy family TV times at our house. But I did not know that it had gone on for 38 years and only finished up 2 years ago. That’s lots of summer wine. But I got the impression that it is still a cozy cultural touchstone for a broad spectrum of Brits. And what I come to see  similar to the Alabama3 actual band. there seems to be a bit of humbleness  about holding that place for the people.

There is quite the variety of stores and restaurants and I found a Tea house with Wifi – Emma’s – and really delicious food. So that’s where I did my computer houskeeping instead of my room. Not that my room wasn’t fine, But it was a beautiful day and I wanted to be out as a person. There’s a pleasant mix of tourists and locals and people like me who just happen to be here for some reason.
