After the hike to Hadrian’s Wall, the next stop was the awesome town of York. Home of Yorkshire Pudding and Yorkshire Terriers ;-) We got there in time to hear the boys choir at York Minster and it was quite moving as you walked around the church and took in the sights. The church has beginnings back to 600AD and it was considered completed in 1472.

(Sorry….had to get one of our “OU” pictures in ;-)
The cathedral was a gothic lover’s dream……

And finally as we left York, this picture just spoke “England” to me……


We’re here! Left Saturday afternoon and finally made it into Glasglow late Sunday night. Lots of flight delays and sitting around airports but now it is all worth it.

Spent Day 1 (yesterday) in Edinburgh (Eddie Burrr) and saw Edinburgh Castle in the morning and then had free time all afternoon – Cait and shopped til we dropped! Lots of the typical tourist shops but some really neat buildings. Unfortunately it sprinkled the whole day but we still had a blast. Going to try and get pictures downloaded from Cait’s camera tomorrow – I accidentally reformatted my camera disk before saving to computer of my pictures yesterday ;-/

Day 2 (today) was about 6 hours in the bus as we head towards London. Stopped at Hadrian’s Wall (which was awesome – more on this tomorrow) and York. Beautiful countryside – no cows grazing but lots of sheep! Stone walls everywhere – typical postcard scenes!

Going to log off for now and get pictures uploaded from today – will post again tomorrow evening – hang in here with me while I get this all figured out – we’ve taken some great shots!
