Christmas in England!

After a canceled flight, denied boarding on the re-scheduled, and a 1 hour delay, I finally made it to Manchester, England! From there my Father and Uncle picked me up and took me to Holmefirth Valley – where they grew up!

After a late tea, I went to bed – exhausted after my day of travel. The next morning we took a hike up West Nabb – the tallest hill in the area. They say on a gin-clear day you can see coast to coast of England, East to West!

My dad on the peak!

Myself on the top!

After wards we took a walk through the village.

Palm trees!

We bought some traditional fish and chips and continued wandering around the village.

A nice old telephone booth!

Heh heh.
