What we did on our holidays …

well, on our church weekend away. The title reference is to Fairport Convention's second album, and while holidays does not really convey the idea of a mini-conference, there was time for a 5-mile country walk, returning along the cliff-tops, and some exploration of the old town. Our speaker was Tim Davies of Christ Church Central, Sheffield which describes itself as a church for people who don't go to church.

The youth hostel, pictured above, was a brilliant venue, right next to the iconic Whitby Abbey at the top of the famous 199 steps. The accommodation was comfortable and the service very good.

  1. That's the kind of conference I like — with time for a little sightseeing and recreation. The last one I attended had no such thing. Bummer.

    Love the hostel's big windows!
