Oct 19, 2015 - Our last day in Skeggie

Having a lot of problems uploading photos to this site, so please forgive me. Still trying to get the hang of it. Decided to spend our last day in Skeggie taking another bus trip. We went to Mumby. Beautiful old church. The first vicar was in 1200. Interesting story here. We had a suitcase with us because we did a load of laundry and didn't want to go back to the hotel as we were right by the bus station. When we got off the bus right at the churchyard we found that the church was locked but we could hear people inside, lots of...

Oct 18, 2015 - Lunch at Trafalga

Forgot earlier to mention our eating experience yesterday. Ken had arranged for us to have lunch at the local pub and restaurant. When we got there, they offered us either soup or juice.

A basket of large rolls was also on the table. They brought us each a huge plate. Mine had at least half a chicken if not more, yorkshire pudding, gravy and a large...

Oct 16, 2015 - A big find in Hogsthorpe

What an exciting day. Walked a couple thousand steps this morning by walking to the laundry mat. Didn't have my pedometer on. Did laundry then decided to take a bus to Hogsthorpe. Visited st Mary's parish church. As soon as we walked in the door, there on a table was a sign listing the active duty soldiers from Hogsthorpe in WW1. There was my grandfather and his brother (Herbert and Frank RAYNOR). After that we went back into the graveyard. Most of the old stones were removed from the graveyard and placed around the stone fence. We were...

Sep 5, 2015 - Adventure day 8 - Skegvegas

Today we are off to Skegvegas (Skegness) - this is where Carl works and he is very proud of it. So we have to pop into Lincoln first to sort out final details with travel agent for our Wales and Ireland trip. Now we are on way to Skeg - a proper English seaside town. It is quite a pretty drive to the coast going through some lovely countryside. When we get there Carl takes us for a drive past his flats etc. We park up near the pool where Carl works (unfortunately he does have to work for a bit today). This is next to a fair with some great...
