Durham City

The girls were on a mission today, Jack Wills in Durham!

On the way there we dropped my Mother off to see an old family friend who has been unwell, then off to Durham for a flying visit (horses to get in etc.)  First port of call was lunch at a favourite hostelry on College Green beside the cathedral.

In the entrance was this little fella looking very hopeful as he waited for his owner to finish lunch.

Sadly we resisted all temptation and left him there and enjoyed a delicious lunch!

Off to the cathedral, one of my favourite places since I was a child, the highlight of our summer holidays when I was little was the annual bus trip to Durham.  I have been delighted to learn that it is also a favourite of No1 Daughter though for different reasons.

The 'quick look' in Jack Wills turned into the predictable epic resulting in one purchase for No2 Daughter, which at the time of writing is still a mystery, I have my suspicions and will find out later this evening.  At the time of purchase I was enjoying a visit to Top Shop and Dorothy Perkins with No1.  A chaps duties are many fold!

Time to call it a day and get home via a quick walk above the river Wear and the weirs...

ps. Spotted a new lens in Jessops.........


  1. I've never been to Durham, but have heard it's a lovely city. One day maybe...

  2. I've never been there either. How you have resisted them doggy eyes? Lovely shots.
