Taking the biscuit

After a night’s rest, we breakfasted, packed and were on our way. Yesterday we completed 86 miles and today’s destination was Lincoln(hence the biscuit reference!)

We stopped at the American Cemetery, rows and rows of marble crosses and stars for loss of life. Time to reflect, time to remember and just time to be. 

It started to rain so we headed inside and it was beautiful. 


We owe so much to those and although sombre it was worthwhile to visit.

Onwards to Lincoln, and a stop at Stamford. What a delightful town: full of quaint shops, bridges and some great photo opportunities. We live on a beautiful island!

Next up Lincoln and we enjoyed the many views of the cathedral as we tried to find somewhere to park . A walk up steep hill😱😱,  a wonder round the cathedral. Just so beautiful, the stained glass, the ornate carvings and the feeling of serenity breathtaking.


Dinner was at cafe zoot, a recommendation, and didn’t disappoint. Liver parfait, Brie, lamb and beef suet pie was delicious. Creme brûlée was dessert and I washed mine down with prosecco.


The walk back down steep hill was eventful. Debbie laughed till she cried, I held on to walls,railings, anything. I have never been happier to see drainpipes! 

Now happily ensconced in our b&b we are tired but have had another great day!
