After breakfast we headed through the mist up to Robins Hood Bay. I went to the cafe at the top of the hill and sat down, with a coffee, to do my embroidery. Somehow that never got completed - I was too busy talking to everyone - sometimes complete strangers who appreciated their efforts of walking up the 30% gradient hill being recognised. In fact I had a whale of a time! I did worry, however, about the young man who tried to push his elderly father in a wheelchair down the hill followed by his wife pushing her dog in a pushchair! I did see the young man making his father get out of the chair and walk down the steep hill - but never saw them come back!
Then, as we were coming home, the minibus somehow made a detour. I am not sure how it happened but I ended up at The Sewing Centre - home of very inexpensive fabric. Whilst I watched Sewingbuddy buy up the shop I decided that it would be rude not to help out - so I may just have bought a piece or two! All for Christmas presents of course!
We came back by taxi - I say we - there may just have been two other ladies who we now have corrupted and who spent more than they may have expected to. Dinner tonight will follow the semi final of the boules competition ( I got knocked out of the quarter final). I have chosen Duck liver pâté / smoked haddock and poached egg / cheese and biscuits - it's a hard life!
Tomorrow we are heading off to Castle Howard - where Brideshead Revisited was filmed all those years ago. It will be our last full day and thoughts will turn to packing up and coming home. Would I come again? If they'd have me then I might just be tempted!
