The House of the Trembling MadnessAugust 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom
What a car we have. It has an inbuilt Sat Nav, a heads up display on the dash and my own sat nav on the windscreen. Can't possibly get lost - even when they disagree on the route we need to follow.
Today it was time to go to York - one of our most favourite places in England. It's only about a one hour drive south of where we are staying in Murton. Traffic around York is terrible - made worse by a gas pipe repair on the main road into town. Anyway we finally got there and parked in a car park - I would like to look for a spot closer, but this was agreed to be close enough. Now it was off to look for Bill and Marie's daughter Zoe with husband Stuart and their daughter Millie.
The York Minster dominates the sky line. Compared with the bendy and crooked Tudor buildings it is tall straight and extremely ornate. Shows how the strength and the power of the church must have dominated people's thinking in times past.
We visited lots of small shops and the market - Mary was happy buying more things for me to carry for the rest of our trip.
Lunch was a Murphy's Stout and a pulled duck wrap - life is good.
After we had finished shopping we came home - think Mary had a good sleep in the car.
Getting home at 7pm, it was a bit late for another night out, so we stayed in and watched the athletics - shame Usain Bolt didn't win his final 100m race.
Tomorrow a boot car sale in Murton - I will try to imagine I'm on the Antiques Roadshow or Bargain Hunt - lets see how I go, hope Mary doesn't find anything heavy to buy !!!!
