Cruising, Chilling and Chickens.

Last Sunday we made the most of the good weather and had a tootle over to Matlock Bath on the latest addition to the Nesbitt motorbike collection, the Moto Guzzi California. On Saturday we had travelled to Leeds and bought some proper panniers, so when we pulled alongside two more cruisers we felt we had captured the correct image of how the bike should look.

This weekend however the weather forecast was not so reliable so we headed out on the CB1300 and had a day over Bridlington way, stopping for a cuppa at a farm shop.

We came home via Whitby, stopping at the Whistlestop Café.

Today it would seem the chickens are chilling in the sunshine....

Bev, the perpetual broody hen is trying to sit on the eggs. We have a good routine now, she knows I am going to encourage her to leave the eggs and have a run round the garden, giving me time to remove the eggs and for her to grab some breakfast.

Ella loves to lie in the sun by the old goose pond.
Not sure if it will be the cruiser or the CB1300 at the weekend - we will just have to see.


  1. I can't see Ella!!! "Ella..where are you???????"

  5. Really fun post! What a neat day.

  6. A cuppa in a cafe can be comforting.

  7. I am glad the weather is also great in England. So a cruiser is a bike? I wrote about cruise liners.
