I was up with the lark this morning and by seven o’clock had come round sufficiently to risk a walk into town.
Barnard Castle-castle and the river Tees. I have been here many times before and so has this blog. The Postvorta thingamajig should be able to find further pictures of this town for your delectation. It is a grand if breezy day. I stopped on the way through the woods to get a picture of what I thought was a bumble bee on Hogweed. Odd place for a bee, I noticed it only had a single pair of wings so it was a hairy hoverfly. I followed it around for a while, then fell down a bank so gave the stalking business up as a bad job.
I purchased a paper and notice that the opening ceremony went just fine. That’s alright then. it must have come as a relief or maybe surprise to the organizers……..don’t they know it’s not British to do these things properly? Congratulations to you all.
Barnard castle has one of my favourite butchers, having been almost vegetarian for the last couple of weeks I decided a purchase was in order………..
The pork chop, complete with a slice of kidney. The offal is usually removed from the carcass at the abattoir just in case the unwary fall foul of mad pig disease. I’ll risk it, it’s a rare and welcome purchase.
Back to the paper and a cartoon that tickled my fancy………………….
Enjoy your weekend and keep your fingers crossed for Lewis in the Grand Prix.
