I used to come to Silverdale for holidays during World War 2 as a young boy. (You could buy eggs off ration here!). It was wonderful and I promised myself to retire here one day. That day arrived and I started a new hobby – painting. I love the local scenery and in particular the buildings. Most of my paintings are in “Pen & Water Colour” and are in A4 size so that I can easily keep a record of them by scanning with my printer.
