Monday 4th May
Moody, miserable, murky Monday!
On my way to work – absolutely drenched.
Tuesday 5th May
The sun returns!
Daily exercise early morning to Keyingham…..
old windmill converted to a home.
So much history …last week defunct Station Houses, today – an old windmill.
Wednesday 6th May
In the midst of Coronavirus and rainbows in windows, lovely surprise to see this sign down a remote country lane on my early morning exercise – rainbows everywhere – even a lake!
As I took this photo I heard my first cuckoo of the year!
Couldn’t actually find the lake…
until I turned another corner and there, hiding behind the bushes…
Thursday 7th May
Friday 8th May -VE Day!
with a lovely prayer fastened to the church gates.
We Will Remember Them.
Saturday 9th May
Used my daily exercise to explore surrounding villages.
Scally, my bear, wanted to join me at this memorial in Paull, (Can you see him next to the small flag?)
then on to Fort Paull.
Sunday 10th May
Torrential rain, strong winds today as I set off on my daily exercise.
Visited the dock land area of East Hull which was just one of those areas –
as well as places such as Hessle Road, Beverley Road, Stoneferry – along the industrial sector of the River Hull, City Centre, all of which experienced damage during World War 2.
Those living closest to the docks were hit the worst.
Green spaces now occupy the land where there was once family homes – until the nights of the bombing raids. Many were destroyed….many civilians, young and old, were killed. There are many such ‘bomb sites’ across Hull.
I placed our ‘Gift of Love’ in these pictures as a mark of respect for all those who lost their lives
