No idea when this will be posted for although my mobile signal couldn't be better I have nothing on 3G... Half a pint is better than no pint at all! I'm about eight hundred feet up, in the middle of nowhere. Superb views and a basic but totally satisfactory camp site.
We are so far, about a mile, off the beaten track that Sat. Nav. let me down. The van well stuck, wouldn't go forards, backards or upards. Looking on the positive side I have or rather the scenery has added a little character to my 'umble abode. I'm in a good mood today so we have no problems only opportunities.
I now have the opportunity to polish scratches out of the damn truck.
Here for six nights so will no doubt get to know the area.
This really belongs to Ordnance Survey, hope I get away with a belated credit, the scribble is mine.
Left Hexham as dawn was breaking and headed the one hundred miles south. Don't see many of these now. An old GPO phone box.
SMALL TORTOISESHELL....A first for me this year and first to greet me.
Some people collect badges on their travels, I collect a few hedges. The second image is my destination, a unique road in, over half a mile constructed of inverted railway sleepers, very effective they are too.
FYLINGTHORPE....I hope! Forgot my compass and map.
ROBIN HOODS BAY.....Well...A glimpse of the church. Funny job.
REDUNDANT......But recycled, an old railway goods van body. Once a common sight on farms and small holdings. Not recycled to save the planet but out of financial necessity. Maybe, bearing in mind the road, he's a frustrated train driver.
That's your lot. Sorry about the photographs, was playing with off camera flash........you don't want to know.......and left settings all anyhow. Thank the lord for RAW, or whoever gave the wizards their powers. Just salvageable!
PS. That's post script in Latin. Means after wot I've wrote. Am promising myself a neon sign on the camera bag. 'CHECK AND DOUBLE CHECK'. And in smaller letters.'You wasn't born a Muppet, it took you years of practice.'
