It's Catch up on 2 days as we didn't have any internet last night. Yesterday we travelled  from Witney to Bourton on the Water seeing some beautiful back roads because we were going round in circles ! We stopped in Stratford upon Avon to meet Jane, who took us on a walk around the town, we will have to come back and stay so much to see here.Then on to Towcester to see Ian's uncle Michael and 2 of his daughters and the littlest g/daughter.lovely to see them. Went back to see Michael this morning before we headed up to Coventry Cathedral ruins the part of the city we saw was dirty, wouldn't like to live there. On to the M1 with all the other crazy drivers, hundreds of trucks and a GPS that was about to get tossed out the window, but seeing as it's not ours I didn't. We have found a nice little B&b in York. We took of on foot into the city 20 min walk, in and out all the little lanes of shops and walked part of the city wall needless to say after 2 hrs of walking we were pooped.nice hot shower & a cuppa ! And now  the pictures

Picked up our hire car and of on the motorway to Oxford, very busy. Onto church hanborough to look at a cottage that Ian lived in when he was a small boy. Then we carried on to Witney to look at Ian's grandparents house and an aunties house. Then we went to see his aunty Caroline &uncle Mick And 3 of their children. Caroline put up a table full of lovely food,It was great to meet them all. We will meet their other son tomorrow. We are staying in a nice B&B.
