Woke to another beautiful sunrise. Sat in the garden early this morning to watch the wispy clouds turn pink and then fade away.
Today was a day to explore the streets of Lincoln, walking down the High Street, past the canals and back up Steep Hill to the Castle. Of course we had to stop for lunch at the traditional Cornish Past Shop. Yum. I seem to be eating my way through England, but somehow with all the walking I have lost weight. Yeah!
Doris and I decided to visit the Lincoln Castle, built by William the Conqueror and used as a defense post and later a prison. We walked the walls where we had great views of the Cathedral and the surrounding flat landscape.
After the castle we walked up the hill to Newport cemetery where we discovered one corner full of veterans from the two World Wars. There was an area at the back of the cemetery where warning signs and visual examination kept us close to the paths. The ground was sinking and many of the graves had fallen a foot or so into the lower depths.
On that creepy note we headed back down the hill and to our little flat, Danes Cottage.
