Bryan Redpath is a long time friend of Terry Smith, who is the webmaster for one of our regular sites, 'Tel's Interesting Trekking Scenes'. The last day in November is Bryan's birthday. This year is his seventieth year, which he celebrated in Canada, where he now lives. Terry did a two part [1] [2] photo feature of Bryan's old haunts as a birthday treat. For the rest of us, while wishing Bryan a "Happy Birthday", this is an excellent guide to the countryside and culture of the North East of England. This is only a small selection of the many and varied pictures in the two galleries.

Beer is much in evidence, and the first port of call is the Allenheads Inn. Be careful not to drink too much though, because those are stocks outside, for punishing would be trouble makers! The second picture is the Middlesborough Transporter Bridge, which was irresistible given our weakness for such structures. The third picture is the area around Egton Bridge, near Whitby. Terry called at the Horseshoe Inn at Egton Bridge, to raise a cheering glass to his old buddy. The lovely Sarah, who in the pictures has pulled a foaming pint of White Cinnamon from the Durham Brewery, by coincidence shares her birthday with Bryan. "Happy Birthday" to you, too, Sarah!

What a great day out, even when vicariously enjoyed.
