A bridge not too far.

This weekend is the second weekend of the Open Studios event at The Ropewalk Arts and Crafts Centre at Barton on Humber. The artists open the doors to their studios and anyone can go along to meet them. I went last Saturday. Michael Scrimshaw is my favourite, always fun, always jolly, and a great conversationalist. 
When I arrived they were eating mungo beans, prepared by Helen, and they offered me a taste. It was lovely so Helen wrote the recipe down for me. Michael does mainly commissions, mainly large sculptures 
 Afterwards I drove my car over the bridge and had a walk along the North Bank.

The tide is coming in, which allows the barges to travel upstream to the docks.

It's looking like it's going to be another sunny day today. I've been doing some extra walking to try and catch up with my miles. Sadly it won't be enough to make the 750 mile target at the end of the month. Don't forget the Walking Group check in day on Monday the 1st of October. Let's see how everyone is doing.  ilona

Ps. Just back from my walk today, 9 miles.
