Old York, Old York
We couldn't be happier. Flew into London, bussed and railed to Birmingham to collect the cab. Preston is even better than we expected (Yes, Totty is for sale now). The weather is perfect - sunny and just cool enough. We stayed in Naidine's flat in Scarborough last night. It was so very, very English... I couldn't stop picturing Jeeves & Wooster knocking about. Today we swooped down to York and secured a terrific B&B right in the middle of town. We are staying here through Tuesday morning. What we're seeing lots of: newly hatched lambs, scads of Vespas in wacky custom colors, ubiquitious old brick cottages tucked into valleys, the popular "bad wig" hairstyle on young men. My face hurts from grinning so much. Driving on the left is FREAKY!! Here are a few pics. Check out that ice cream truck! I'm working on getting them on Flickr but so far have about half - most still need titles & descriptions. Time for bed!
