Outing

Friend W and I are off in about an hour to our little cathedral city of Ripon, about twenty miles south of here.   We shall first of all go to the award winning restaurant Lockwood's for a spot of lunch, and then - the purpose of our visit - we shall go to the cathedral to see The Great Northern Art Show, which is on every year at this time.   It showcases Northern artists and is always well worth a visit.

Of course one cannot take photographs and I know from past visits that long range views of the cathedral itself are extremely difficult as it is surrounded by buildings.   But I shall do my best to give you a taster of our day out - even if it is only a photograph of my lunch to whet your appetite!   Back later.

It sounds like a lovely day ahead. Lunch in a restaurant would do me right now! xx

Your plans for today sound wonderful. You'll have the 20 minute drive though beautiful views, and then see an exhibit of artists who've been inspired by beautiful places. And of course...the stop for lunch will be fabulous, too.

I'm looking forward to seeing your report. Best wishes.

Enjoy the show.

A photo of friend W's lunch as well as yours, please, or we may feel shortchanged.

Well you should be home by now, so I hope you enjoyed the outing, and that the art work was worth seeing.

I like to think of you going out for a meal. It makes me feel better about sitting here feeling deadly boring cooking a piece of lamb and some Aunt Bessies.

Would love to see photos of your meal. Our lunch was emergency rations of mac and cheese from a box because I was too tired to cook. Very sad, I know. Dinner will be better since Dennis is cooking his delicious turkey burgers.
