I'm pleased you have used the correct pronunciation Jacob 🙂
It's a quiet summer afternoon in the village of Staithes, North Yorkshire. Nothing can disturb the peace, until The Empire arrived.
Thanks Dave, is this a regular Friday thing?
'Is this a regular thing'
I put something up every couple of weeks. Everyone is welcome to join in.
I had to take a close look before I saw the Death Star lurking in the upper atmosphere, but I don't think it presents a threat to the locals. For a start off that is clearly one of the later versions of The Enterprise in semi-cloak mode between the surface and Death Star.
But even if The Federation have to dash off to confront some rascally Romulans, The Empire would be no match for Ecky Thump
Hahaha both very good. That Tie Fighter does look fairly legit. I took part in this fun idea because I live in the next county to Yorkshire and thought they could have all the sci-fi destruction. Got a new idea today.
Yes Trevor, hit them with a black pudding. That would restore the peace 🙂
Thanks for the clue Dave. Took me a moment to see it 🙂
Serengeti comes to North Yorkshire 😀
Haha - you're back with a vengeance Ged, there's a lot going on in that one! I hope things have settled down a bit at work now 🙂
Ahhhh this is excellent, I feel the that the Seal may be a bit far from home.
Of course it does Ged. I mean what else would we expect to see there? 😉 Blimey, you've got a lot going on matey. It's a toss up between the crocodiles and the cobra for my favourite. I will just say that those animals are taking a chance. They'll eat _anything_ oop north! Dave recently told Jane and myself what he would be mostly eating if his wife was away, and I'm still needing therapy to get over it. [shudder!]

Not a single item of which is available in the U.S. due to our health department regulations, if I recall correctly, but I hope Dave got to eat them anyway. 😊
Black pudding, haggis, heart, liver.......
So just the normal Sunday lunch then Dave, could be worse, deep fried Mars Bars yum yum 😁
Deep fried insects in Thailand was one of my favourite snacks, not to everyones taste but quite nice all the same
Ah, you mean breakfast 😉
I keep looking at your animals, @Ged_Traynor. I never saw a seal when I backpacked in the Serengeti, but that may be because they live in salt water, with the one exception of yours, who seems happy in fresh water 😊 !
The zebras travelled with the giraffes, and when we came face-to-face with them walking in opposite directions on the trail, all parties stopped and stared for several minutes until the giraffes took a sudden turn and the zebras followed. I never saw a cobra.
The crocodiles and hippos lived in the same pond and we were told the hippos were much more dangerous than the crocs. If you could add a hippo, it would be perfect!
Glad to have you back, Ged, and I hope things have settled down at work.
The Serengeti trip is something I've always wanted to do, it's on my bucket list that along with getting up close and personal to an active volcano.
Work wise we still have only have about 40% of the systems back up and running but we're getting there, it could be another couple of weeks before we finally have everything back to normal.
Oh and the Serengeti animals in my head are slightly different than reality as you may have guessed 😉
