Apologies and Excuses

Bernie - doing school work

Lance and Julie - in Fife


A walk of two halves - windy going out, muddy coming back. Figure of eight fountain in Staithes. Had to go all the way down to the harbour at Staithes and then climbed all the way back up. Carol made it all the way round for the first time in 3 years.

Saw several ships. Lunch stop in a sunny, sheltered spot at Runswick Bay. Misplaced Beth temporarily. Runswick Bay was very pretty. Walked through a council estate on the way back.

Wildlife: Ducks sheltering on a pond, oystercatcher, blackbirds, two chaffinches, two gulls sunning themselves on a flat roof, gull trying to sit on a rotating chimney cowell, small black pony at Staithes, brown pony at Runswick Green. Evelyn saw a black and white cat sunbathing amongst some daffodils.

Went to Carol's for afternoon tea.

Evening meal

Mill House, Springwell. Excellent, but very large portions of sophisticated nosh.
