Great photos Phil :)

We're watching the Heartbeat series with Nick Berry at present and I can see the same unusual archway in your photo that I see in the series :D

Thanks Ron - they're whale bones & have been there since I was a lad (so a long time ;)).

Enjoy the series - there are about 18 'seasons' of about 20 episodes each I think, all filmed around Goathland & Whitby.

Haha, the shops there in Aidensfield :)

Thanks, Richard!

Quick question, why did they make Goathland 'Aidensfield' but kept Whitby as Whitby?

Ron.
I believe that Aidensfield is a fictional place made up of many locations, a lot of them in the village of Goathland, but not all. The pub is the Goathland Hotel as in the pic below. It even has the Aidesnfield Arms on the sign on the gable end. It is right opposite Scripp's garage.

The Police Station in Ashfordly is actually in Otley some 70 miles away, as is the Aidesfsield Police House, well in a nearby village anyway.

The series doesn't really give much of an idea to where everything is in relation to others, not even where Ashfordly is compared to Aidesnfield.

Goathland station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway - North Yorkshire Moors Railway - NYMR - is Aidensfield Station and also the Station in the Harry Potter films.

Its an Aptima isn't it? They're solar powered EVs. Pretty impressive range and speed, reckons on 60 miles of range from 8 hours sitting in the sun.
 
Correct mostly. Its Aptera that are manufactured, or strictly speaking prototyped here in Carlsbad.
Super observant types will spot a Triumph Herald in the background. Very rare.

Erika and I went on a trip to Queensland during the second week of July. We travelled to Tenterfield in northern NSW, then up into Queensland through Warwick, Toowoomba, Yarraman, then Bundaberg. The return trip covered some 2300 miles (3700km).

The Great Barrier Reef prevents waves, so on the coast at Bargara, east of Bundaberg, the ocean is very flat.

This photo is on the way out of Toowoomba heading north and then northeast towards Bargara. The distance that day was circa 600km (373 miles).

The road over the top heads east to Brisbane, some 170km away.
