Hi folks.
We are setting off soon for another weekend in Stockton. Same hotel (Lenny Henry's favourite) by the water and the rafting training place.
Looking forward to it. Will try get some photos. And some gentle walking done.
Lol

Pity all hotels don't have free wifi. If the signal is good I'll pop in.

    Enjoy your trip - when my youngest son was a student he worked his holidays for the firm who did the landscaping of the riverside at Stockton. We live in Durham, not so far from there.

    Hope the sun comes out for you, but as the others say, don't overdo the walking.

    Thanks Christine.
    We went to yarm this morning. I'm in a lot of pain though. The mattress was awful. A big shock as them hotels usually have great beds. In fact, that's the main reason we use them (premier inn)
    Went to reception this morning. Are going to move us to another room today and have already refunded us for last night. Can't ask for more than that.

    We are now in Darlington. I am staying in the car though. Had a good walk by the river in yarm so I ain't pushing my luck.
    Took some photos. Will try post em later.

    Hope everyone is alright?
    :D

    Thanks Theresa. . :D

    Hope you enjoyed our little town and your walk by the river. It is unusual to find their mattresses are uncomfortable. Fingers crossed for a better night's sleep tonight.

    I forgot to ask if you found Yarm Castle. Not many people do unless they know where it is. The 40s day sounded like fun.
