Visiting the McLaffertys in Durham, Thursday, July 2 through Saturday, July 4

Unfortunately, I spent most of Thursday sick in the passenger seat of our rental car, although it was probably more painful for Chris!

When we finally arrived at our destination, we were warmly greeted by Ken, Margaret, and George. We had a lovely dinner (some of which I ate, although I wish I could have been well enough to eat more) followed by a very early night.

Friday was a traffic-ridden drive out to Newcastle for the best fish and chips meal I've ever had! Totally worth the traffic! We also went for a short stroll around Durham. The university's graduation ceremony was held in the cathedral, so we were unable to go in, but we did get a photo posing outside. And we even caught a glimpse of Bill Bryson while there!

Early Saturday morning, we said our goodbyes, and off to the airport at Newcastle for our flight to Barcelona....
