Aussie BM?
Welcome back :hello:
 
Tues 7th
Senior Management was undertaking some consultancy work at Scarborough Hospital
I arranged for a days annual-leave & drove her up (thus earning brownie points?)
We were up there, before 08:45 (with her meeting starting at 09:30)

Once dropped off, I had a few hours (not sure how many it would be) exploring....
Normally I consider Scarborough to be 'Blackpool-on-the- North Sea', but out of season today, it was quite enjoyable

She's back again, for another meeting on Thursday 13th, so once more 'for brownie points', I've arranged the day off, & taking her again:angel:
Thus, once more, she can sit in the back, on the return journey & do her work on the lap-top, rather than having to play catch-up in the evening

Hopefully, the light may be better than the date above for photography, & I'll research more beforehand

Plus, being a parsimonious Yorkshireman, the parking is free on Marine Drive, until the middle of March:okay:
(on Tues 7th, including my Octavia, there were only 5 other cars, on the section, from the 'headland' to the Toll-Bar!!)


Believe daughter's also coming with us, to keep me company for the day
(ie; expecting me to pay for dinner somewhere, during the day.....)
Now she's told me she's only going to be there for an hour.... this particular meeting's only between 08:30 & 09:30:wacko:
All that way, for an hour (still, I went up the A1, to the MetroCentre, for less than half-an-hour, in December)
She's got a related meeting, at the architects offices, in Manchester on Wed 12th (I can't take her, I'm working a 'late-turn'..... again :evil:)
Thus, no days 'geographing' in Scarborough, or Manchester


However, on the 'plus side', she's informed me, that she's not going back into her office at all that day
So... I proposed a continuation up the coast to Whitby (& subsequently heading home via 'Saltersgate'/Pickering/etc...)
She's amenable to that:okay::okay:

Buggeration!!

I've now been told that the Manchester meeting is at Scarborough, on the Wednesday afternoon
So, they're all stopping overnight at a Hotel

Thus no need for daughter & myself to go on Thursday AM, & senior management is going to her office upon returning

Therefore, it'll just be a 'dad/daughter day'
I have formulated contingency plans...…...:angel:

And, if anyone remembers the 1" discs 31 hammered into a wall in Moulton village, they're on the wall pictured here approximately level with the bottom of the Bush, about 3' in on the main wall.

The lower Cascade & bridge
Ripley
(lake below the 'Castle')


Quite a few years ago, as we had to have her put to sleep in 2007, we went here with our 2 Border Collies
Some stupid brat of a kid, threw a stick over the bridge where I was stood here , & before I could hold the lead tighter, Gypsy jumped over the parapet after it:eek::eek:
Thankfully, or the kid would have followed the stick, she merely got out downstream of the bridge...…...…. still with the stick
