An eel in the alley.

Up in East Yorkshire a week or two ago.  Found myself in Hull at 10.30 one morning, so there was only one place for a beer before the 12.30 train to Kings Cross – Wetherspoon’s.  And there are three in the city centre, but the most interesting is The Three John Scotts, the old central post office opposite St Mary’s Church, which once had three consecutive vicars called John Scott.

On the way to it I spotted this oarfish (not an eel after all) in an alleyway.

Oarfish just round the corner from iconic street The Land of Green Ginger.

Had to find out what an oarfish is, and a quick Google taught me.

Borrowed this from another site - seems the real thing is bigger than the Hull street sculpture.

Tried Moorehouses White Witch and Milestone brewery’s New World Bitter before dashing for homeward train.
