I’m Back

Whitby Abbey

And now a very happily married man. You just know it’s right when your bride walks down the aisle (do registry offices have aisles?) holding a wooden stake rather than a bouquet… I kid you not.

DraculaAnyway, post wedding we spent a few days in Whitby – where else? First off I want to tell you about the B&B we stayed in. The Bats and Broomsticks is a gothic themed guest house and I knew we’d feel right at home when we arrived and saw the life sized Dracula outside.

Vampire in TransitOnce inside, what a place… coffin in the hallway, four-poster bed in the room and by the bed a copy of Dracula. The place is beautiful and many thanks to Tish and Kev for a wonderful place to stay. In fact, I was so impressed I am putting a permanent link in the sidebar.

from the Dracula experienceOf course Whitby has a strong Dracula connection and we visited the Abbey, as well as the Bram Stoker’s Dracula Experience. There is a Dracula tour but unfortunately on the night it was held we were both a little weary and the weather, which had been astoundingly good that day, was turning a little unfriendly. Next time…

Thanks for the well wishes we received from folks, normal blogging shall resume from tomorrow…
