The Walls of York…

After we spent time in Derbyshire we traveled northeast to the city of York and dropped off our rental car for the remaining days of our literary tour. For York we had a walking guidebook that Katie was in charge of and we saw many things we would have missed otherwise.

We weren’t looking for any of our literary favorites here but just enjoying the walls and history surrounding this city.

We attended our first evensong at Yorkminster and were so blessed by that hour of singing and readings. Katie and Dear also climbed to the top of the minster and Dear took this great photo above.

We went to a history museum and donned these heavy helmets for a photo op.

And…of course we had to take a photo of the Pharmacist in front of the Apothecary.

From York we boarded a train to Edinburgh where we would enjoy the city and take a bus to Stirling for some fun with Monty Python. Two more posts to go to wrap up our 2004 Literary Tour of Great Britain.

Back to the present…I’ve been very busy with my sisters the last few days. On Monday my sister Kathy flew home and on Tuesday my sister Vera will be flying home. I’ll share our Saturday road trip when I have some time to create the post.

  1. There are so many magnificent cathedrals in England. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the photos of your trip! Hope the time with your sisters was great.

  2. Oh to be in attendance to hear the music and the Scriptures! Sounds thrilling. Loved seeing the photos of the beautiful architecture. You all look like a bunch of kids! =D
