We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, And know the place for the first time. ~T.S. Eliot Four Quartets

Whirlwind weekend

With Nikki and Kathie arriving from Chicago on Friday, we've had a whirlwind weekend of sightseeing, mainly because of our fancy 7-seater rental car. Since we could only rent it for Sat.& Sun. we took in some of the most scenic areas of Yorkshire.

Our weekend started in nearby Haworth, home of the Bronte family and the Bronte Parsonage museum. Unfortunately, it just rained and rained, but in-between, we walked (Alot!)..
Knaresborough, home of Mother Shiptons cave and petrifying well was the next stop.. and I'll have to give more details about this later on. The last stop was York and on a late, rainy, Sunday afternoon, we really did just walk.. but we also had something to eat in the oldest pub in York, climbed the roman wall, and popped in to the Minster as well.

I think we are all just resting and recovering today --well all except dear husband who was the chauffeur for the weekend and is now working hard!!
