A new day a new start. I feel a lot better after a good nights sleep, and that's pretty much the same feeling I get every morning. I am a morning person, and sleep well. I've just checked the mileage for yesterday's walk, it was as I thought, more than 15 miles, the total was 18.5. A good achievement in my book. So, I was tired, now I am rested and looking forward to the day.
The first pic is starting to cross the Humber Bridge, looking back at the South Bank, my car is parked on the road under the bridge. The red brick buildings down there are the Old Tile Works, you might have read about them in a previous post. It looks like the place is deserted, I have a feeling they were pretty much flooded out during the massive tidal surge we had during the floods of December. The Reeds Hotel a bit further along the river was also flooded, there are big signs up saying closed till further notice. There is talk that it might never be opened again. It's a lovely morning for starting a walk.
I spotted this low plastic fence through the hedge, and had a closer look. I think it has been erected around the edge of the wood to keep in small furry animals so they don't stray onto the busy road.
Oh, and here is another sign, half a mile past the first one. Why have one when you can have two, ha ha.
At the top of Turtle Hill I spotted another red field in the distance.
Staying on the Yorkshire Wolds Way we headed down to the waters edge through Long Plantation. A long stretch of woodland that is popular with dog walkers and kids building dens, from the nearby housing estate. Here we have reached the Humber Bank. There are metal steps to go down over the rocks to the shoreline. Hmmm, doesn't look too good, a bit muddy.
Shall we give it a try? Yeah, let's do it.
My feet are ok today so I was able to pick up the path at this point. Looking back to where I have come from.
