Took a train from Beverley to Scarborough on this bright sunny day. In a field of short green young wheat I saw two hares squaring up to each other. Nothing like rabbits really, more like small kangaroos with their powerful haunches and long ears. They were not actually boxing, so March hares rather than mad March hares.
Met with friends Sandy and Alistair who once lived in Brighton, and had lunch in a place just outside the station. Could not resist a Sloppy Dog. Its a hot dog in a roll lathered in spicy ground beef.
Then went to the art gallery where a designer called Kate Plumtree had a show of gowns and other costumes themed around a range of animals. Delightful stuff. They even had a range of stuff people could try on – but only one fitted me, and I don’t think I did it justice.
Elsewhere in the gallery found a big painting of The Judgement of Paris. You know the one, this young dude somehow gets to decide which of three usually near naked women is most beautiful, makes a choice that starts the Trojan Wars.
Afterwards we went to Wetherspoon’s for a beer – damned if I can remember what it was, but it was a US hopped beast.
