York races…

What a busy week !!!!

Vicky and Simon went on a coach trip to the York Racecourse last weekend – an accident on the A1 motorway ensured that we spent 3 hours 10 minutes on the small minibus which really started the day of with a wonderful bang 🙁

Then, once we had made our way inside, we were met with a 20 minute queue for the toilet, 45 minute queue for the cash machine, a 30 minute wait for a beer or hotdog, and just 3 minutes for a cab to head into York City Centre.  Guess which option we took 🙂

Not an easy decision since we went in a group, but in fairness we struggled to find any of the group within the grounds since there must have been a couple of hundred thousand people in there so the decision was made MUCH easier.

We ended up having a fab meal at the Living Room overlooking the river, and slowly made our way home via train.  The day ended up being significantly better than the outlook from that damned coach 🙂

Sunday was another fun day – went to Hornsea village in the desperate search for decent weather – unfortunately it was not to be found – did have a nice day out however, and finished it off with a meal out with Greg and Sue – Elliot enjoyed a Turkey Sunday lunch. He definitely has the taste for Turkey dinners since he had one last weekend at the Red Kite also 🙂
