My picture of the day-Where's yours?

  1. Out for a run earlier, & re-found the spring that allows iron-oxides to leach out of old workings


    There's a transport café on the A1
    Yes, there's still some left!!!
    It has 3 BMXs hanging on the walls, the white one is so unused, it still has the moulding marks on the tyres!!

    What the exterior looks like now, it's an ex gate-house/lodge to Stapleton Park
    (roughly 1 mile south of the Darrington exit)

    It was the 'Way West' café (seen here, from the south, showing the 'posh' façade, that was on the carriage-drive)

    Not the best area, when it's windy
    And, at least above water

    I really, really don't want to say this because I can believe the bars are delicious - but when I saw the image it reminded me of Hastings beach... that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Trying to recreate a lovely dish perfected by Patricio and his staff at Onda Luz Restaurant in Praia da Luz, Algarve.
    Mr M gave my efforts 8 out of 10 (no bad) :ohmy:
    Pics are:- Onda Luz ladies, Patricio (Frank Sinatra lookalike) and my effort.

    The bike was hanging from the ceiling in "The Bar" on Saltaire Road in Shipley. Just above a table top Space Invaders machine...;)

    And Ryther moves about - it's usually above water (just) but on occasion my Garmin states it's below sea level...:eek:

  14. 8 metres above sea-level, just west of the Rythre Arms, according to my OS sheet, for the area (105 'York')

    It doesn't seem that long since the floods, when Ulleskelf & Ryther were all but cut off (not the Boxing Day floods, of 2015, that took out Tadcaster Bridge), & Raw Lane was under water all the way in, from the turning up to Kirkby Wharfe
    (Raw Lane, being the road from the 'Tadcaster TurnPike')
