White Easter (T)







Approaching Christmas each year in this country there is eager anticipation whether or not it will snow on Christmas Day. Bookies lay odds, people place bets, and so there is some technical definition of whether or not it is a "White Christmas". No such build up normally applies to Easter, but this year we got a White Easter, at least up north in Yorkshire, where we 5 5/9ths (including Kathryn H) spent the holidays. The Church was just down from our cottage, and we went there for a lovely by-the-book Easter morning service.

we stayed in a village called newton on rawcliffe, near the town of pickering - which has a castle ruin and the steam train that takes you to the coast (whitby). it was about half way between york and scarborough

the train also stops at goathland where they film 'heartbeat'

o yes, we were right on the moors - they were spectacular. eddie and tom chased some sheep over them...those long-haired, wild looking ones
