Clint drove me over to Hull today. I went to see Hull City play Cardiff City in the English Championship. They are The Bluebirds and we are The Tigers.
It was a good, hard fought game. Plenty of action. It finished 2-2 which was in my view a fair result. I was sitting next to a white haired Lincolnshire woman who pointed out one of the club's resident peregrine falcons to me. They were introduced to control the stadium's pigeon population. In other words, the falcons eat the pigeons!
Before the game I ate something from the "Admiral" fish and chip shop on Anlaby Road - but not pigeons or even a peregrine falcon. I had "pattie" and chips. "Patties" are unique to Hull and East Yorkshire but I hadn't had one in years. It was most satisfying.
Before entering Hull today, I stopped off briefly in the affluent village of Welton, west of the city. The picture that accompany this post were taken in Welton. In one of them you can see a rather large boat parked in a house driveway. It has been there for years. I suspect that its owner's name is Mr Noah!
