It has been a wet old day from start to finish which we think is the first time that has happened during our entire trip! Not bad eh! We left our pretty little valley camp site and headed down to Carlisle. On the way we stopped off at Lockerbie which was the unfortunate site of a plane crash in 1988 after it was blown up by Libyan forces. There was a memorial to those lost that day, in the Remembrance Garden next to the church but just as we ...
... it was raining heavily and we headed to Bolton Abbey (aka ruins), but it was pouring by the time we got there, so we kept on going. We got back to the cottage & passed out. At 8 we had "last meal" and the girls had baths and are in bed. It's 10:50 at night & the plan is set for tomorrow. We don't have wifi int the cottages, but we'll be n Skipton in the morning so I'll be posting this then. It'll be Market Day & we have a castle to storm! From Maddie's Travel ...

Many pics on the camera. When we got to the cottage, we were exhausted. Moved into our respective cottages & had cocktails overlooking Malham Cove. Kids played in the great big backyard & we had spaghetti. Long day & fun cousin play time. From Maddie's Travel ...
... a BBQ at Amy's house. While the weather was too rainy to actually BBQ, the meat tasted just as good out of the oven. We ended up playing some of our favorite games - like The Village.
Sunday was Nathan(1)'s last day in England, and so the whole gang made a trip out to the Metro Centre to enjoy the afternoon bowling. After a healthy lunch at McDonald's (heavy sarcasm implied) we spent the afternoon playing ten pin bowling. We were a huge group of 15, so we split ...
