I decided to use the late afternoon to take a coffee at Neros and write up day 3's events, whilst internet was available. They had to kick me out at 6.00pm but I was ready for the hill climb up to the Cathedral. Lincoln is a very old and majestic city, full of mystery and character, and views from the cathedral heights were amazing. It can be a tough old hill to make, with a back pack and tent in tow, but gradually I defeated even this nemesis.
As I approached the end of the climb a guy was playing his guitar in the courtyard area in front of the Cathedral and Castle entrances. people were enjoying the performance and the sun was still courting us in the late afternoon. I instinctively chose a seat alongside a young lady with a pram, (Not because she had a pram/buggy, but because she was smiling) who immediately struck up a conversation with me. Now this is becoming quite commonplace, so I understood that forces were drawing us to meet. When she asked what I was doing and where I was going, I responded with that I was looking for somewhere to rest the night and perhaps try out my new home. Yes you've guessed it, I wasn't going to need it tonight....!!!!
Kate, simply said, "You can come and stop with us if you like, Dan won't mind."
She motioned towards her Husband who was with his daughter in the plaza. Dan came over and showed no signs of surprise that his wife had been so charitable on his behalf. I met Amy (3) and the new arrival Bobbie (Roberta) and we chatted merrily for ages. Soon they explained that they needed to get the Kids to bed, and so we set off to their home, close to the Cathedral.
