Yes, I was hoping no-one would pop out of the garage as I sneaked round the corner to get the pictures of the Wolseley and the Volvo, it can feel a bit awkward at times. Don't mind asking though if the opportunity arises. Yes when photographing "Peanut" an A30 I had spotted in Keswick, after chating to the owner a bit, he even flicked up his trafficator for a photo :-D The evidence is here :!:

....and just to give it away, when in Rome....

....and from the County where a tea-cake is a bread bun (maybe just in the WR to be accurate) and chip shops are "Fisheries"!

.....Not Captain James Cook, the Endeveaour, or the fish and chips then Jim :-D

Northumberland may be England's last wilderness, but within a comfortable day trip we also have North Yorkshire Dales and Moors, the Lake District and the Scottish Borders. Probably have been almost everywhere in that little circle, and many favourite places time after time :)

Surely not just from the ferrari in the carpark down by the quayside behind the Tourist Info Office Steve :-D

Totally enjoyed my fish and chips from the silver street fisheries, and my can of cream soda! Skegness may be bracing but up by the James Cook statue and the Whale bone Arch Whitby was "Blustery" in the late afternoon on Saturday

Well no, that could have been anywhere. It was old Jim that did it but I'm ashamed to say I can't recall where he stands anymore, I think it is on the west cliff in front of the Royal hotel. I never see the town anymore, just go to my brother's then head off home.
We did scatter the wife's ashes there a few weeks ago but off the cliff near the abbey - there's a long story attached to that that I won't bore you all with.
