We had a coffee near the train station, and then watched for our platform announcement at King’s Cross.
Because it is Easter weekend, everything is absolutely packed. We had reserved seats but many people had to stand on our train for 2 hours until our first stop, York.
It was a 3-hour train ride north to North Yorkshire.
Our homeowners picked us up at the train station and we drove about 8 miles to their village. I felt the theme song from “All Creatures Great and Small” running through my brain. This is where the author lived and the TV show took place.
Our homeowners are delightful. We got oriented to our new charges, 2 cocker spaniels and a cat.
We took a walk around the village to get acquainted with foot paths to use for walking the dogs. It is a darling village. There are 3 pubs, all within a 5-minute walk from our house. We will love it here! We walked to one of the pubs for dinner. We had a cassoulet with a lovely piece of haddock fish and a piece of smoked trout for an appetizer. Just lovely.
