    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.

    Day 1

    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 …

    So, here's the news from the UK and the Tutterows. I have attempted for the past 3 nights to find a way to upload photos and share them with you...most of you are aware that I do NOT give up easily, but with no laptop and only Android at our disposal, a solution has not presented itself.

    ... giving us both a fright and we laughed till we cried.

    We took a forest walk to a shelter looking out over the loch to where there are seals. That was cool even though they were a fair distance away. We didn't find the castle ruin we were looking for but it was a pleasant drive ending in Fort William for lunch. I drove us back.

    Remember I said that we could not get lost if you walk along the beach? That’s only true if the beach continues. If the beach terminates in a rocky bluff, then you turn around. We cross paths with the local sheep and even get close to a Scottish golf course until we see the sign that says, golfers only. After a couple more hours, we find our way back to town, the hotel, the Crofter’s Rest Public Bar, and my first ...

    ... 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 ...
