Good morning world. I ran out of time last night to put this out. After a day out all I want to do is collapse in a chair and browse a few videos. Today is a fresh new day. I have to check the desk calendar to see exactly what day it is. My neighbour hasn't gone to work so it must be the weekend. Ah yes, I have a dog walk marked down for later. I fancied a drive out somewhere, so I took the back roads into Lincolnshire. The Wolds have some gentle slopes with very nice views. Quick, stop the car, snap snap.
Caistor was where I was heading for. I have been here a few times, but not for a while. I sometimes use this as a place to park the car, then go off walking. This time I had a bimble around the town.
I once gave a talk at the Arts Centre. I had a look for a photo of this but sadly I didn't take any. It was April 2011. Blimey, time flies.
Inside there is a cafe, and a library, and an art gallery. There is lots of local information for visitors to peruse. I popped into the lavvy while I was there. Two people were checking out the leaflets for local walks. I thought, aha, walkers I think. Yep, they were. We immediately had something in common. The subject was the basis of a lengthy conversation. The lady was also a keen recycler and a make do and mend fan. That's how the conversation started. You know me, I can talk non stop for England. The bonus was, we were singing from the same song sheet, if you know what I mean. Nudge nudge wink wink. YESSSSSSS. I was very happy to meet these two people.
The pink house used to be a pub.
Flowers everywhere, even in October.
The Market Square in the centre. There was a fruit and veg stall when I arrived, but it had packed up and gone by the time I took these pictures. Two elderly gents had set up a stand offering free bible classes here. It was a bit cold to be standing about so they called it a day and went.
August 2013. And this one from January 2015.
This is what I found yesterday. Nature has claimed it back, it is probably too late to save it. The only pictures I could get were from the church next to it.
