November 5th is the UK bonfire night commemorating the thwarted attempt to blow up the houses of parliament in1605, and as most bonfires are on the nearest weekend, our campsite at Seamer, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire hosted a public bonfire.

Saturday was spent riding up on the moors with very little traffic about as the tourist season is just about finished.





Back at the campsite by mid afternoon the sun came out and this was the view from my tent, with the bonfire all ready to go.

And later......

As our friends were trying to keep cool in Bingara, clear skies in UK at this time of the year mean it's difficult to get the wine (red) up to a drinkable 'room temperature'. I think a wine heater may be on the cards! Idea

I awoke on Sunday morning to a bit of frost, and had to scrape the ice off the inside of the tent before it melted and dripped everywhere.



Riding home contemplating the weak sun and a temperature of around 5* or 6*,I thought "Is this really the same sun that's roasting those guys in Australia this same weekend?"

Paul.

Nice pics SP. Looking a bit frosty already!
Just out of curiosity, what is the length from the axle on your chair wheel to the front of the nose of the boat?
Wasn't too hot here for the weekend actually, just about 30c...pleasant enough to ride in and not that real baking blinding affair we get sometimes.

Rick, Hardleys don't come out at this time of year, so I couldn't find any. Twisted Evil

37 dfegrees down under sounds good, same as we have here. Only problem is down under you got funny degrees called Celcius, we got ones called Fahrenheit.

Just a thought today, of how our friends closer to the equator and inland cope with the more humid and warmer conditions.
I like the fairings too much to attempt a safari suit look, Smile
