Hounds and high winds

The Yarborough Hunt met in the car park at the Kings Head at Keelby on Saturday 15th January, then the hounds passed through the village followed by the huntsmen on their horses. The master of the hunt wears a scarlet jacket, known as hunting pink for historical reasons.

As a shopkeeper you have to watch out for the hounds at times like this - they have no sense of direction, and can easily wander into your shop. Guard the sausages, men!

This weekend the weather turned very mild for January, and the last of the snow melted. There were gale-force winds, just to add a bit of interest.
