The Grand Old Duke of..

Yes, we have been to York!  A few days in the sun shine, soaking up the heat (and a little bit of rain!) and relaxing with friends.  We have done this every year for the past 15 years – relaxing with friends that is – visiting different places as long as they are within 2 hours driving time.  It is good to get together for a laugh and a chat and some quality time.  So where did we go…

well into York and a visit to the Minster.  We stood here to watch a noisy, colourful short parade.

The National Railway Museum.  I liked the way the light was catching this very old engine.  Contrast it to the gleaming one beside it.

Then in the Shambles we met this colourful character…

At the entrance to our camp site we oooooooooooooed and aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhed over these lovelies.

There must have been 6 or 7 foals.

I’m not really a horsey person, but you have to oooooo and aaaaaahhh, don’t you?!

The relaxation took the form of a magazine…
