The staff was great. The bar lively with good food (and cute bartenders). The breakfast was good. I could not say anything bad -- it was worth every penny.

We arrive at our hotel. It is late so we just unpack and head for bed.
We head off to Durham Cathedral and the historical district. Durham has a castle and a cathedral in the same areas. They have turned the castle into a university so no touring there. We have to settle for the cathedral. (Gee whiz...just one …

... curry and the wonderfully English (again) trifle for dessert, it was a lovely end to a lovely day and we made our nest in the beautifully fitted out guest suite and slept well!
The next morning it was onwards for more visiting. Breakfasted and with the dog walked, we were taken to the Gateshead Quays, to see the bridges and the Sage. We even made sure to walk across the Millenium Bridge so that Valerie could say that she's been to Newcastle too :-) The sun shone and ...
... about the atmosphere as it is the play itself. Kellie is now acquainted with the concept of the "beer snake", an ever expanding collection of stacked, empty plastic pint cups that winds it way around the stand. Inevitably though as it expands too far, and just like Icarus, it flies too close to sun (or the ever increasingly intoxicated feeders of the snake add on one too many stacks of cups) and it all comes crashing down, dowsing unsuspecting cricket ...
