– yesterday was a good day - we needed to get some packs of Green newspapers from York cellar so decided to go by bike from Beverley - wearing our Green tabards of course. It was a nice ride via Cherry Burton and Etton. We ate our lunch by St Helens Well on the old railway line nr Mkt Weighton with all the ribbons attached to the tree. A robin came close for crumbs. Dropped in at ‘Caring for Cats’ (Mkt Wtn) open day…why do people apparently avoid black cats?...then to other side of A1079 (which is NOT bike-friendly): cuppa at pub at Melbourne and visited the Pocklington Canal where volunteers run free boat trips. We took a nice rural back route into York thru Heslington and over the Millennium bridge. Snuck into Fairfax Corner (www.fairfaxcorner.co.uk ) as the guests were out, watered pots in yard, changed clothes in shed , used outside loo, strapped papers onto trolley , had G & T and water with Rachel, and caught bus home - where Bill slept all the way and I put the world to rights with a very thoughtful lollipop man from Cottingham!...
