I spotted this for the first time this morning... Can you identify what it is? :-)

Thanks to everyone who guessed and congratulations to Sparkle and Sheila who correctly identified caterpillar eggs. Also well done to everyone who mentioned eggs, close but not quite close enough! :-P

Wrangle Show

prize winning turnips at wrangle show

Over the past few years we've been regularly visiting Wrangle Show. The village show has been running since the 19th century. I wonder what the Victorians would make of today's attractions!

Despite the stunt show, acrobats and RAF flyover my favourite feature is always the fruit and veg competition. I keep promising myself I'll enter one year :-)

Seagulls are Aggressive

Seagulls are aggressive

“Seagulls are agressive. Do not feed them.”

I spotted this sign by Bridlington harbour. Are seagulls really aggressive? Have you ever been attacked by one? :-)

Ghost Signs of Whitby

Arthur Sawdon

Ghost signs are old hand painted signs for businesses that are long gone. Arthur Sawdon was a seller of beds and carpets while Thomas Bryan was a wholesale jet merchant. Are there any ghost signs in your area?

Chalk Arch at Selwicks Bay

The chalk cliffs at Selwicks Bay, Flamborough Head contain several sea caves, rock arches and other formations. The rock arch formed when a sea cave collapsed. Eventually the top of the arch will fall away, leaving a chalk stack.
