… it has been a quiet week in Beaufront Woodhead. Spring appeared to be on the horizon so I was spurred into action, replacing the battery on the Scrambler and taxing it from 1st February. It was 4th February before I was tempted out, making the most of a brief spell of sunshine and some relatively dry, clean roads. So, feel free to join me as I take the Triumph out to Haltwhistle via the Military Road (which runs parallel to Hadrian’s Wall) and back along the A69 before branching off at Haydon Bridge.
Since then, the weather has been the worse this winter – gales, lots of rain and sleet – storm Ciara. The Scrambler is once again confined to the garage 😦
Except for driving on the wrong side of the road, that was lots of fun. 🙂 I think of you sometimes while watching “Vera”, as it’s filmed in Northumbria.
Glad you enjoyed the ride, Janet 🙂 There was an episode of Vera filmed in the school next door back in 2016:
I have never managed to see it – my Geordie wife is very critical of Brenda’s accent 😉
We really like it despite some of the characters almost impenetrable accents. 😁
I should have said that only one or two of the characters are very difficult for us to understand. Don’t want your wife made at me. 🙂
Impenetrable is very apt 🙂 I still struggle to understand my good lady:
That was a fun ride. I usually get nauseous watching driving videos but this one is fine. Maybe because it’s from a bike instead of a car?
Glad you enjoyed it, Julie. I used to suffer the same but I think I have watched so many car and motorcycle videos that I have become immune.
