Want to get out of the house for a bit?

It’s a blustery New England day here and, as usual, I am housebound. But because of the wonderful invention they call the World Wide Web, I can break free from my tether here and fly east…. high above the seas, over to the land of my dreams…to England. Please join me on a few small trips there, starting in the Yorkshire Dales in a tiny village called Muker. We’ve been there almost every time we’ve traveled to Yorkshire and never miss our chance to return to it again. It’s a magical place…





Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire on the east coast:


A walk round inside Robin Hood’s Bay (huffing and puffing up and down the steep streets there):


Whitby and Environs:


In the heart of Whitby, my favorite spot on earth: (I want Paul to bury my ashes, after I go, on the top of the hill near the 199 steps overlooking Whitby harbor. In this video, if you go to the :54 second mark on the video below, just there behind those people sitting on the seat, is where I want Paul to bury my ashes. He’ll probably have to go there at night when no one is looking… but that is my last wish…)


And finally, a little tutorial on How to Master the British Accent (this is fun):


So take a few minutes off from your busy day and relax and enjoy a little trip to the land of my soul, England, with me.

    England is for you what Ireland is for me. Over the years I’ve toyed with the idea of purchasing a home there… but my cousin already has a place I can visit any time I want. Bex, thanks ever so much for sharing. I so understand your passion. xoxo

    I’m saving the Yorkshire ones for when I have more time, but that girl’s not what I would call a reliable narrator. I did like “U as in stew”, bless her! xx

    Oh yes, Sandy, I remember…you and your “babushka” up at Whitby Abbey…the wind was howling, but wasn’t it great fun? I’m glad we have our memories of it.
