Hello campers, hi de hi. I've been sat on me bum all day, well almost, except for the waits in between buses. I did have a bimble and took a few pics. Not many tonight. So my first ride of the day was from Kendal to Lancaster. I got the 9am bus to give me a good start. I knew I wouldn't reach home tonight but I wanted to get as far as I can. A quick pic of the river as I waited for the bus. Goodbye Kendal. No I didn't buy any of the famous Kendal Mint Cake, I tried some once, it was like mint flavoured sugar, I gave it a miss.
Took a few photo's of Lancaster Castle as I was going between bus and train stations.
I landed in Preston and checked the time tables to see where buses were going. There was a bus due to leave at 1pm for Burnley, that would take me a bit further. There was a bus to Clitheroe, also leaving at 1pm, not quite as far as Burnley, but taking me a bit further north if I wanted to get back into Yorkshire. I studied the time table again, now that looks promising. The bus to Clitheroe has a number change and carries further on to Skipton. Perfect, that will do nicely.
As soon as I got off at Skipton I again studied the time tables. It didn't look promising, I thought it would be the end of the line for me today. I went through all the time table boards again, just to check I hadn't missed anything. Then I found a bus on a Sunday timetable, going to York, via Harrogate. Amazing, just what I want. The only trouble was it didn't leave until 5.15pm and was due in York at around 7pm. That would make it a late finish, but not to worry. I rang the Youth Hostel at York to ask if they had any availability. They had.
So I had a couple of hours to kill in Skipton. Here are a few photo's. It was quite busy, the sun had brought people out again.
After breakfast I will walk into York city centre and get a bus to Hull, should be home by lunch time with a bit of luck. Catch you tomorrow. Toodle pip.
