Stanley Bimble – Before and After The Nut......
We had a slack start to the day and then began our Stanley bimble. Opposite camp was this amazing shrub.
Up the hill past the Stanley Hotel, established in 1847.
The WW1 Memorial.
The Chemist and Town Hall, 1887 and 1911.
Antiques shop and a house for sale.
Oooo a Beez Neez coloured Boxster.
Bits and bobs as we get closer to The Nut.
Star of the Sea with the cemetery opposite – some Pioneers are buried here.
The Star of the Sea has a lovely view of the bay.
Nearly to the chair lift, we stopped for a breather and to look over Stanley, population 281.
We had a smashing time and great views from up The Nut.
After successfully rappelling down the steep zig-zag path we stopped at the Gift Shop. Still quite high over the beach.
We walked past a house with traditional lobster pots in the garden. A look back up at The Nut.
Pretty rental properties, we could be in Cornwall.
We loved Bob Lives Here. Time for a swift half in the Stanley Hotel.
ALL IN ALL A QUAINT LITTLE TOWN
A PRETTY LITTLE PLACE
