Today we just wandered around York a bit … it was a Bank Holiday … so it was kind of busy.
We did have to arrange our trip to Dublin … which was a bit complex. Once that was sorted, we walked around a bit … had lunch at Little Bettys, which was quite good. I was even able to find an open wifi network while at Little Bettys so I could check email.
We got back to the hotel around 3:30 … as my friend Martin was going to pick us up at 4.
Martin came to collect us and took us to his house … we had a wonderful time with Martin, his wife Jane, and kids Ben & Heather. Jane made a wonderful beef stew with potatoes and vegetables from their garden.
Of course Martin and I geeked out a bit … talking iSeries, Linux, digital cameras, and Martin’s Asus Eee PC (which I’m probably going to have to get).
One thing that was very interesting was to see Martin’s house … Martin and I are both in similar age & economic brackets … so seeing his house, community, and town, was quite enlightening.
