Pickering War Weekend
As soon as the train got in at Whitby station we made straight for the Magpie cafe since I know the waiting times can be long. The fish and chips are worth it though and when we got sat down we had two lovely tables of people either side of us. We had really good conversations with the people around us as they were very interested in our day and why we liked dressing up. It was nice that they felt comfortable enough to ask and we both enjoyed the attention and interest. I also told them about my Grandma being in the ATS and at the end of the meal the lady to my left said as she left "I think you have a book in you". What a compliment!
On Sunday we spent to day walking around Whitby and even though it's not so big we found plenty to amuse ourselves. I had my palm read which something I’ve wanted doing for a while and do you know she was spot on; I could have cried at some of the things she said. We also found a pie shop and since pie is one of our major food groups we were very excited. Imagine how much more excited we were when we went in, got sat down and realised the interior was all decorate 1940's. How fantastic is that! We fitted in perfectly and it felt like our own little time-warp dining room. To the point that when other customers came in we were saying to each other "quick! Call the police. Some chap's just come wondering into our dining room."
That evening we headed home sleepy, happy and still full of pie.
