The Pilgrimage continues

Left Parsnips fairly early (rather regretfully I might say) and hit the road to Nottingham. The owner of the B&B, Linda, was so welcoming and went to all lengths to make sure we had a fantastic stay and she achieved that and more. I must say, the same could be said for our stay in Mevagissey. Howie and Andy really did all they could and more to make sure we were well cared for.
Went to Woburn Abbey today to see how the relatives are living. Absolutely awesome! There was a painting of the previous Duke of Bedford that I could swear I was looking at Dad with a slightly fatter face. There was also a drawing of a previous Duke and it was very much like me! The house was loaded with priceless works of art, dinner sets and all sorts of furniture etc it was mind boggling.
From there we made our way to Nottingham to our next B&B, P&J Hotel. We met our next host Adeline and shown to our rooms. Clearly mountain goats need to tote our luggage around because the 2 storeys to get up to the rooms with all of the luggage was indeed a challenge yet again! The shower also became a bit of a challenge. Mainly to get wet and also get into. I'm not really huge, although with all I've had to eat I'm getting there, but I hardly fitted inside the shower. Poor Ron experienced even more difficulties! Adeline was just delightful but, I don't think we will be making it back to P&J. Shame really.
Today we are in York. We made it there by about 2pm and shown into our rooms at Gillygate House. Only one storey of stairs this time but the room is huge and comfortable. The rest of the gang have gone down the road for a look look. I have taken some time out as still recovering from a cold (oh alright, Manflu!) and didn't sleep a lot last night. So have stayed behind to have a little rest.
The weather has been a bit miserable and it's cold here in York. I guess it is that time of year, so no surprises I really.
Will load some more piccies on when I can wrestle the camera off Ron
Take care all
Bryan and Ron
