Returned from York today saying goodbye to all and leaving them at Cliffords Tower.

Had a great day in York yesterday. Everyone in York was so friendly and a very helpful member of staff in Fairfax House allowed Govi and Mandy to take photos of the bed where Sean 'died' ( 10 - 12 times depending on who told the story!) We did lots of walking both during the day and on the ghost tour! so we were all really tired by the end of the day.

It was wonderful to meet everyone.

I will post some pictures when I have time!

It would have been lovely to meet you, Donna. Although I had booked and was so looking forward to it, I couldn't go in the end and missed you all. :cry:

Well, it sounds as if you are having lots of fun and I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the trip as well.

We have been so lucky with the weather! We have had two lovely days and today we are visiting the Jorvik Viking Experience and taking a trip on the river. There will be reports and photos, but not until the weekend, as we are knackered in the evenings and also watching Mellors in 't' 'ut. :-D

We were so sad that Lhaewin couldn't join us after all. :cry:

It has been great meeting Southernbelle again, plus her lovely husband and son and meeting Donna and her lovely family for the first time. We were also able to meet a friend from Live Journal,who took us to an Italian restaurant in the wonderful setting of the old assembly rooms and brought her beautiful dogs to see us later. :cheer: :cheer:

Can't stay off the water, can you, CW? Too bad there weren't any windmills. :lol:

The trip keeps sounding better and better. Very historical. yesnod.gif

:lol: :lol:

I am home now and have been for a while, but am totally knackered and gathering my thoughts to write a proper account. We all took lots of pics, but most people have better cameras than me. :-D

All I can say was that it was another really successful and happy week and that it was lovely to meet old friends again and meet new ones for the first time. :cheer: :cheer:
