Daily Prompt: Eclipse

via Daily Prompt: Eclipse

In 1999 the UK was subjected to a full Solar Eclipse down in Cornwall and I was sadly holidaying down there a few  weeks prior to the  event in two grotty Haven campsites. Eclipse fever had struck the area and everything was eclipse this, eclipse that; posters, keyring  and even Eclipse inspired cocktails.

To be fair it was overkill and clearly aimed at the increase in tourist trade, I  bet the locals were sick to death of it all long before the event and were thankful  it was over.

We didn’t get totality up here in Shropshire, I think it was about 70% so we still got a dip in day light, it was like the calm before a storm breaks…
