UK Vacation Day 6 Recap

laelene Post in lifestyle glimpses, photo blog,Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Day 6 of our UK trip was a wonderful day of revisiting memories and sharing them with Panda. We wandered all through York and checked out a bunch of stores, buying some items but mostly browsing. I got a chance to feed some ducks and geese by a river, which I loved. We even had time to enjoy afternoon tea at Betty’s before returning to the hotel to rest and wait for the train to Edinburgh. A few hours later, we were stepping off onto Scottish soil and making our way to the hotel (getting a bit lost along the way). Once we finally found it, we happily settled in and enjoyed the welcome gifts and nice warm quarters.

[Need more recaps? Here are Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, and Day 5 recaps.]

I had to stop and feed the birds. It’s a compulsion.

Can you see how gleeful I was? I love animals.

A ton of them joined in when they noticed food and I had fun walking along the bank sharing the wealth.

Even this pigeon wanted in on the action. Check out the cool black duck too!

At one point, I leaned over the bridge to feed them.
