Recipe for a good day out


Take some good steam trains, reasonable weather, a packed lunch topped off with a fresh pancake from the Green Frog.

The Green Frog is by Preston Docks, about five minutes walk from the Ribble Steam Railway and they do a fine line in freshly cooked pancakes with a range of fillings, from Maple Syrup through Bananas to Strawberries and Cream, all at reasonable prices.

Over the years my wife and I would go for a drive and often end up here for a MacDonalds followed by a pancake, happy days.

Great shot Les, two fine motorcycles and my word the thought of those pancakes is making me very hungry.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, you often see plenty of motorcycles here, people of great taste I think.
Are you old enough to remember 'crunchy frog' chocolates? I think they were in a Monty Python sketch or possibly Marty Feldman.
Les Auld: You've got me there Ian, don't remember them at all. Thanks for the comment.
Definitely my sort of place Les. This is a grand shot...and I bet they were happys. We still get out and about like this Les.
Les Auld: Keep it up Ron, you soon miss it when it stops. Thanks for the comment.
