Post 189: 7 September 2017. A Visit to the European City of Culture 2017.
Day 6 of the ‘Best of 31 years of walking in Yorkshire condensed into 8 days’ was meant to be a visit and walk around the European City of Culture – Hull.
However, my visiting young lady (Victoria), supported by my wife, had other ideas. She wanted to visit the shops of York and spend, spend and spend; well sort of.
Such a lady is, I have found from the past, an irresistible force that no amount logic or reasoning will steer away from her chosen course. I meekly submitted and let her ‘do her own thing’. I was pleased next day to learn that she had bought some jewellery, clothes and others items.
But for anyone not so inclined, the European City of Culture Hull, with a walk around the old part and the marina is well worth a visit, taking in three of my favourite museums, The Ferens, Wilberforce and Maritime. Even better they are all FREE.
Miles Walked – I haven’t a clue!
I went to the cinema and had a much needed rest day.
The next Day (7) we were off to Robin Hoods Bay and some of the best heather on the North York Moors. That’s a relief.
