Heading North{again}

Off to North Yorkshire stopping at the Humber Bridge for breakfast, a walk around (& the loo) on  the way up. In the past we have stopped at the viewing points on the Hull (North) side of the bridge. This time stopped on the South side much quieter no coaches or kiss me quick hats. Just quiet car park an old ship repair yard and creek.humber bridgeoff the railsup the creek.jpgboat yardboat yard1
