It's been brass monkey weather today, although it started out bright and sunny, there was a bitter cold wind blowing across the fields. The shorts didn't come out of the bag, and I kept my jacket on all day, mostly with the hood up to keep my ears warm. My cheeks are rosy, I have wind burn, not sun burn, ha ha.
I went over the Humber Bridge to Beverley, around the ring road, and parked on the north side at Hull Bridge near Tickton. My idea was to head towards Driffield, following some of the route I had planned on taking when I came back from South Shields in September. I didn't get as far as Driffield today, so I will have to go back again another time and do a bit more.
Hull Bridge is a narrow footbridge, it used to be a road bridge, until they built the bypass which runs alongside it.
Past the Nature Reserve, the water splits into two, I took the left channel, the Beverley and Barmston Drain. This goes in a straight line and meets up with the winding river further on. In a field near Aike I spotted these cute fellas. I say fellas, some of them could well be female, I'm not sure how you tell which is which. They saw me approaching the fence for a photo, they were curious about me as much as I was about them.
Hello guys, you look very handsome. I love talking to animals, I'm sure they understand me.
This one made me laugh, isn't he lovely.
I had a lovely conversation with this horse.
On the other side are two lock gates which look as if they haven't been opened in a long time.
Enjoy your weekend. Toodle pip.
