Zero miles on the clock – off we go



Passing quickly through Hull, stopping briefly to check all is fine in Cottingham where the bungalow is still for sale, we headed for the ferry. Couldn’t quite resist the lure of haddock and chips though!

Sailing out of the Humber estuary, we enjoyed passing familiar landmarks: Hedon church tower here, in the village where we lived when first married.

Then, further out, the flat Holderness fields, where there seems to be more sky and water than there is land, where my Grandad’s family farmed and where many of my roots are.

Then, just before going indoors for a nightcap, we take a glance at “the other side”, where the yellow bellies live...
