A few photographs from yesterday

We went decided to go for a walk yesterday as it was really sunny for a change. It is quite a walk to our station from our house but we walked there and got the train to Scarborough. After a walk down to the seafront and along we went into Peasholme Park and climbed all the way up to the top of the park which leads to the cemetery then from there back to the station, on to the train and walk back home-well over 10 miles for the day but worth everyone of the 22,000 steps--according to my pod pedometer.

Vic remembered to take his camera and got some decent pictures so I thought I would share some of them with you. If you would like to save any for projects or anything else please do.




The stream runs from top to bottom of the park finishes up in a beautiful lake. All the Park was man made in Victorian Times. There was a seat in this bit so we had our picnic lunch.


Lots of squirrels, ducks, geese, swans and birds and lovely trees and shrubs


Lots of blossoms out at the moment

An old footbridge over the path in the cemerery

Most of the graves are laid down as the place chosen for the cemetery was very unsuitable when it was built. The whole place is enormous and like going into different rooms with collections of graves and paths all over the place. At the moment it is being sorted out by Community Pay Back volunteers. In some ways I wish it wasn't as I liked the overgrown jungle feel that it had before.

This is part of the project


Explaining how it has been restored and why it was there in the first place-if you click on the picture I think it will be large enough to read the writing

Hope you enjoyed the walk

Absolutely lovely photos Chrissie. What a great photo of the squirrel (we don't have squirrels so it is a novelty for me). Seems to be a wonderful place to have a picnic.

Chrissie, thank you for the stroll through that exquisite garden. Oh, I do so love the stream with the water flowing over the step-like rocks. It makes me want to oil paint again.

Blessings for a beautiful day,
