Yes, we are - for the first time together - because a kind friend is moving in to look after Yin and Yang as a substitute servant. We are off to Harrogate, York, Whitstable and Bronte country. From the various recommendations from friends about places of interest, we are going to eat our way round E. Yorks... Yorkshire curd cake, and a long indulgent visit to Betty's team room for her dainties, Wensleydale blue cheese, fish 'n chips at the Magpie in Whitby while dodging Dracula memorabilia. And all this in between the purpose of our holiday: journeys on steam locomotives. This is el jefe's special interest (see his website here www.elegantsteam.com ) It's full of his graphic illustrations of 19th century steam locomotives in glorious colour.
We are getting very excited.
