.... Louth General Hospital as an out patient for an ultrasound scan of my heart to check on a suspected heart murmur. Results will take a week or so to come through as this was done by a private company outsourced by the local health authority.
The video is of my journey home. (Normal speed, 11.5 mins)
I have often said that I can see the spire of St. James' Church sticking up well above the town which is mainly built in the bottom of a steep valley. As I leave the hospital entrance you can see how much of Louth lies well below me. The journey then travels down to the bottom of the valley until I reach the traffic lights next to St. James' parish church. The road I am on was once the main London Road and carried all the heavy traffic through those narrow streets. Fortunately there is now a by-pass so things are much easier. Once through the lights the road soon starts climbing again.
Leaving Louth I am in open countryside. I did notice a great number of Wood Pigeons on one of the overhead power lines. Looking at a still from the video it looks as though there were over two hundred congregating there. Turning left on to the B1200 at a roundabout there is one more low but steep hill before reaching the flat coastal part of Lincolnshire and the last stretch home. The video ends at temporary traffic lights at the village cross roads where it is taking twenty days of disruption to replace the old traffic lights which are said to have reached the end of their useful working life. The building upper left covered in solar panels is a new extension to the village primary school.
Where does the £2 come in? That was the cost of a parking ticket to use the hospital car park.
That is what can be seen reflected in the windscreen until I noticed and removed it.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
