Homeward bound

After a night in a warm room we were woken at 8:32 this morning. This left little time for showers etc and as it was miserable outside, we made our way to breakfast, which was again, very good!  A meander through the streets of Bakewell meant buying cheese, beer and treats for home! We returnedContinue reading “Homeward bound”

Two tarts in Bakewell..

We woke this morning to sunshine. We breakfasted and showered ready for today’s journey to Bakewell.  We left just after 11.00 am and took the scenic route. We saw sheep, cows uninhabited terrain and enjoyed the odd oopla!  We stopped off in Hexham, saw the gaol briefly and had a cuppa and a scone beforeContinue reading “Two tarts in Bakewell..”

Final Day 

The ultimate goal of our road trip was to attend the Final today at Murrayfield, and so it was, Saracens v Clermont Auvergne.  I even purchased a rugby top for the occasion!  The weather forecast was poor and we left North Berwick on foot to catch the train to Edinburgh Haymarket. Drizzle became quite heavyContinue reading “Final Day “

Treehouses to Seahouses

Just along the road we found Hoxton North: modern with a great vibe and fab food Breakfast demolished we checked out, took a cheeky photo by a flash car, then we were off to Alnwick. Playlist was very 60’s, 70’sContinue reading “Treehouses to Seahouses”

Trauma, tea and treats

We woke early at our B and B, the gables, outside Lincoln and enjoyed a hearty breakfast after our 112 miles.  On return to our room I found my phone to be no longer operative😱 My mother in law, only asked on Sunday what I would do in such an eventuality and I said I’dContinue reading “Trauma, tea and treats”

Taking the biscuit

After a night’s rest, we breakfasted, packed and were on our way. Yesterday we completed 86 miles and today’s destination was Lincoln(hence the biscuit reference!) We stopped at the American Cemetery, rows and rows of marble crosses and stars for loss of life. Time to reflect, time to remember and just time to be.  ItContinue reading “Taking the biscuit”
