The place where I am staying is Mrs. Hare Albion House, 85 Lumley Road, Skegness. This place would be very nice in Summer but very quiet in Winter. Each peoples house has their name on a plate outside so you can see that everyone knows each other. Names of the most important Streets here are Lumley Rd., Drummond Rd., High St., Roman bank, Wainfleet Rd., North parade & South P., Rutland Road. Am, leaving here on the 20th Dec.
