We finally arrived at York, much to the joy of all the passengers on train car B. The matching girls walked on and thankfully we did not see them again. We explored York and enjoyed walking on their city wall, and walking toward the towering York Minster. Which is gorgeous. It costs to enter the minster and since we are cost conscience these days we just enjoyed the free gift shop. We had lunch at the Ha Ha Bar and Grill. Enjoying the sights and sounds of York.
Monday night we enjoyed the company of Kacie's and Dave's friends, Dave and Becky, as well as Richard. We had tea, brownies, whipped cream (which I did myself), and lots and lots of laughter. We have been able to spend some time with Becky before, she is a woman in Kacie's Bible Study, and found her absolutely WONDERFUL. You know when you meet someone and you go to shake their hand and they just wrap you up in a big hug and you feel like you have known them forever? She is just the sweetest thing and has the sweetest kids. We played with Rosie who is three and whom I am in love with. She taught me that they pronounce Zebra as Zeh-br-ah. We were playing memory and I said I found a Zebra and she said in her sweet British accent, "No, it's Zeh-br-ah." I didn't even mind being scolded. That's how cute she is.
Okay I am out. Here are some pictures of our lovely time in York!
