Day 2

We went to church on Sunday. The Nottingham 1st Ward begins at 10:10AM. The strange time is because about 50% of the ward rides the bus to church, and the bus arrives at 10:00. The people in the ward are amazing. Andrew went the first time he was over there, and they were lovely to him.They were thrilled to see him again, and embraced both of us with genuine kindness.
After church, we began our drive up to Newcastle upon Tyne, where we were going to spend the night before going on to Edinburgh. At the last minute, we decided to detour over to York. So glad we did! It was foggy and perfect.

We walked along the wall for a bit...
....and ended our trek at this building. It was built in 1400-something, and was the guard house at the end of the wall.

It was dark by the time we were done walking the we began our trip out of town. That was a BIT difficult due to the dark and fog. We had some difficulty finding the correct way back to the A1, but managed after circling the city a couple of times :) Andrew did an amazing job driving on the left during the whole trip....we finally made it to Newcastle that night.
