          Our holidays always seem to begin at Wetherspoons! Got dropped off by the in laws at the train station to start our adventure! And my bestie called in to see us off! Thanks so much dawn!! Pint of Guinness before the train to Manchester airport! We are so excited! And a little bit nervous to be fair. Not just for the 15 hour (!) flight either! It's such ...

          ... stopped and asked for my ticket. Ah, so a donation is not enough here - so I headed out into the sunshine again.

          The Minster (C of E York cathedral) is an intimidating building - I also wasn't happy to pay a chunk of money to go inside. Constantine's statue got me thinking about what it was like to live here in those days. Headed for my comfort zone next - The Shambles!!!! Yay!! After my own heart! Then I found Little ...

You guessed it, there wasn't much choice in the matter - the exchange took place and the cricket club moved - that happened within Dennis' memory, so if and when the Waltons from the 1800s played cricket, it would have been right next to the school. I've emailed the Knaresborough Cricket Club to see if they have any archives - you never know....

          ... Went for a large capuccino [2.15L] but probably should have got a black coffee. The British transportation police carry machine guns, a sign of the times. Even had to pay for the loo here; outrageous! That wasn't bad enough but I really hadn't nailed the various coins so I probably paid her majesty a premium [.30L] or at least I think I did.

          The Virgin train to York was on the board for 1108 but the platform never came up until c 1100 ...

          ... it poured down all the way back to Marion's. Packed the car and on the road. rain cleared after awhile but motorway driving is not relaxing. Five hours with heavy traffic all the way. Graham and Bev were out when we arrived, so a drive around town and a quick beer in a local (we were thirsty) and back to Bev & Grahams. Then a nice meal and lots of talk meant a very late ...
