Weight and Stuff Report – 8 August 2015

OK, down again to day, to a new low for the year. I should point out that the weigh reading was taken just after getting in after a moderately long day out on a warm day, and so may be a temporary wossname.

That long day out started with me heading for the station. I had a few possible destinations in mind, but decided not to decide until I got there, based on the principle of “what train’s next”. As it happens, York turned out to be the first option which didn’t involve waiting over half an hour. I managed to get a seat on a busy train and got to York an hour later. I had a bit of a wander round the National Railway Museum. I had planned to have some lunch there, but the cafes were seriously busy, so I decided to wander round the city and find some lunch there. I had a moderately good walk (as the steps figure reveals) around the usual streets and things, and eventually stopped at Russells of Coppergate. Their main line is the carvery, but I opted for their BLT –  a triple decker sandwich made with toasted bread, loads of bacon, plenty of lettuce (several varieties) and tomato with mayo. It arrived with a mound of tasty potato wedges. Not a cheap sarnie, but I wanted somewhere where I could have a nice sit down and enjoy table service, so that’s what I had. Any suggestion that a pear cider might have been involved will, of course, be denied. After that, I wandered a bit more before heading back to the station in time to get a train just after 4pm.

Various acts of photography were committed, and here’s one for now. I don’t think I’ve taken York Minster from this angle before:
