Oct 18, 2012 - York Museum, Royal Armouries in Leeds and general 'hanging out' ENGLAND

Our last week in England was spent on a few days trips, some local, some further away and just generally 'hanging out' with friends and neighbours. We visited the Royal Armoury Museum in Leeds and it was quite an overwhelming place. It chronicles the different types of armoury and weaponry that has been used through the years and across different continents. It is quite interactive as well so a good experience for Caitlin. We got to put on helmets, wear metal gloves and lift up very heavy swords. We even had a go at archery! What was most...

Oct 8, 2012 - Hebden Bridge, Shibden Park, Ogden Water and parties ENGLAND

The last few days we have been based in Brighouse and have been doing day trips to nearby towns and sights. Hebden Bridge is a pretty little town that we visited that is not too far from Brighouse. It is somewhat 'touristy' with quaint shops and cafes. We found a great park that I remember taking Caitlin to last time we were here.

Hebden Bridge is prone to flooding so it was interesting to see a shop renovation that included a flood levy at it's front...

Grandpa took Caitlin down to the canal which runs through Brighouse, to feed the ducks. They managed to get a free ride on one of the canal boats, which was loads of fun for Caitlin. The canals still operate well and have working locks for the boats to adjust to...

Sep 28, 2012 - Caitlin's 10th birthday in ENGLAND

We made our way to England in the Eurostar from Paris. It still amazes me that it only took 2.5 hours from one city to the other and only 15 minutes or so of that was actually under the tunnel. It was a great way to travel. But I must admit, I'm a bit over train travel now - I've had my fair share for a while. We arrived in London and en route to the next train connection, found Platform 9 3/4.... What a laugh! Finally, we made it to Brighouse, to a teary welcome from Darren's parents (Nanny and Grandpa) and a good friend Keith (OK not so...
