Photos From York

As promised, here are a few photos from York. This is the place where we stayed. I won't say too much about it as it's all there in my last post, but you can see that it's all very 'period' - we really felt like we might be staying at Longbourne!

Also, this is the "York Minster" which I did not mention before. It completely dominates the skyline and dwarfs every other building - making it a handy reference point for when you get lost... The second picture is proof that we climbed it - all 275 dizzying stairs!

I've also included a couple of people-pics for the Mums - with one of Robyn especially for Helen ;-) The third one is for Nate - proof that Robyn does and will drink tea. (We have her on record now!)

Today we travelled to Whitby with Robyn's Aunty Meg. She took us to see an old manor house (they call it Castle Howard, but it was never a fortified castle). Some interesting history here - Catherine Howard (yet another wife of King Henry VIII) was connected with this family, although I'm not sure whether she ever lived here.

And that's a wrap. These lovely people are on dial-up, and it has just occurred to me that I am tying up their phone line. Bye for now!
