It was really good seeing around the waterfall area. Nice place to adventure. Are you often out early or was the sunrise the end of your day?
Since I no longer live where I mostly grew up and the house was sold I don't really feel 'at home' anywhere, not that I did there, but you can't help feeling the places you played as a kid were home. So 'home' is wherever I live, and mostly I feel at home in nature or graveyards. (The house I grew up in backed on to an ancient graveyard so I played in that a lot) hiding in trees/shrubs, handstands on gravestones, climbing on the church roof, finding bones. So that's what I wanna do when I'm in a graveyard, but I have to just imagine it now, because apparently it looks disrespectful.
Yeah, there are bunches of Victorian shelters looking out to the sea, with broken windows and drink cans in them. Actually a lot of Southend has had millions of pounds in ongoing development. I actually miss living there. The easy commute into London was good. But the only way to afford it would to find some folk to do a house-share with as its a bit expensive as are most surrounding London Towns.
That's cool. I'd love a bit of urban exploring.... I was gutted to find out there's been an abandoned mental hospital nearby for decades that I didn't find out about until they started knocking it down.
I had an after school job doing domestic cleaning/porter stuff in one of the last Victorian mental hospitals. Back when I was 18. Great massive building. It closed when I was there and they were moved to a more modern mental health development, but I still had a key and went back and the deserted corridors and wards were proper horror story scenery. It's all developed housing now. The whole area is like a modern village in nice grounds now.
Those seaside shelters. I expect they were built at a time when the sea air was a cure all. People would leave the London industrial smog of the late 1800's early 20th century even in winter and just sit in numbers. In winter there the beaches are so empty, one of the nicest walks in cold mist. In summer now they are just full up of horrible wibbly human bodies so you can't appreciate the scenery in summer. No Sunday best outfits and parasols, beer bellies and burps instead.
Living near the graveyard musta been pretty cool too. I had a bud that lived right across the street from an old (well old for America) graveyard. We would rent horror Flix and go hang out there afterword. Tell spooky stories and play hide and seek. Good times

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
