Sunday, May 24th, 2020. In our Virtual Pilgrimage we are blessed with a leisurely Sunday morning, attending the Eucharist at the Cathedral where the Dean preaches, and the Cathedral Choir sing.
Then we get in the car and head out for a roast Sunday lunch at Finbarr’s Restaurant off the Dryburn Road (quite near to where our Tom was born in 1977).
After lunch we take a gentle stroll along the River Wear, timing our walk so that we arrive at Crook Hall in time for a cream tea in their café, and that gives us time to get back to the Cathedral for Evensong.
Then back to our guest room in St John’s for a quiet evening with a bottle of wine. We’re planning an early night before our long drive tomorrow.
It’s been a tiring business, writing about this journey, and I’m ready to move on to another project when we get back home.
