Seahouses 1/4

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

Walking in to the centre of Seahouses during our July holiday in Northumberland I noticed these ice cream vans being readied for a day out on the road.  I think it is the first time I have seen them designed as trailers to be towed by another vehicle.

Surely this has to be one of the most annoying sounding ice cream vans ever:

Ice-cream trailers...in Bangkok we have ice-cream motorcycles...
Brian Walbey: Ice-cream motorcycles, surely they would melt by the time they got to the end of the road Ray smile

This must be a local ice-cream variety - it hardly trips off the tongue like Mr Whippy! the pastel colours complement the subject matter well.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Yes your right about the colours Ingrid, sadly I didn't get chance to try their wares.
Ice cream time will be back soon!
Fine capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. Yes it won't be long before the ice cream sellers are back on the road, mind you a little van comes round our estate nearly every day of the year, he doesn't do much business this time of the year though.

Somehow, Brian, the vans and trailers make me wary of buying an ice cream from them. They have that air of tattiness to them! Well seen, though.
Brian Walbey: Tattiness is the word that came to my mind as well Alan.
classic....
a glimpse into every day life

Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob.
Before we know it they will be out and about again Brian
Brian Walbey: No doubt you see a lot of these down in Cornwall during the summer Janet.
Summer is on its way, like you I have not seen a towed ones before! well spotted shot.
Brian Walbey: I haven't seen trailer ones either Linda.
Well spotted, Brian.
I wonder if Coxon is now an ice-cream magnate - with 3 vehicles or trailers at least he must surely be doing OK.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila. I doubt whether Mr.Coxon has much compeition in Seahouses.
Oh these are fun Brian, what a great collection.
Brian Walbey: A very varied trio of vans aren't they Chad.
''curiouser and curiouser''... Now who said that Brian.

richard
Brian Walbey: An eclectic mix might be a suitable expression Richard.
Interesting!
Brian Walbey: I thought so too RS.
An interesting group Brian, with something of a history behind them I suspect. As for the one in the video, someone needs to take a shotgun to the speakers. Well spotted.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, the one in the video would drive me up the wall I suspect, surely the driver must be quite mas by now smile
We stayed in Seahouses on holiday some years ago and the stretch between here and Bamburgh has many happy memories. You are right about the ice cream van!!!
Brian Walbey: A nice bit of coastline isn't it Bill.
