Poppy goes to York

Poppy goes to York

Dad said the weather was to be good today so we should walk to Yorks. I thought we were going to Yorks tomorrow dad? “Make hay when the sun shines” Poppy. Mmmm so we are going to make hay now??? We left camp and started walking into the village passing fields. To late to make hay dad, its all gone
We climbed up stairs on to an old railway line that had a statue of Saturn on it, mmmm odd. It was a nice morning. Strolling along the path all I had to watch out for was cyclists, there were loads of them! we passed Mars, Earth, Venus, Mercury and the Sun before the path came to an end. Then we had to take another path that went for miles, I didn’t like the part of the path that went by the big noisy road. Eventually it lead to a racecourse.
Look dad I’m as fast a a horse! This racecourse is different to Perth’s no fences. BALL BALL BALL
Wondering into Yorks mum got very excited, what is it mum? Look Poppy it’s the place that makes the chocolate oranges! Mmmmm Poppys don’t get chocolates and they don’t like oranges.

On and on we walked My paws were getting tired. We passed the millennium bridge following the river in to town. We were looking for a bridge that had a café. So not that one. How about this one dad?

Yorks has lots of bridges. Eventually we found it. The cafe was called the perky peacock. It was good to have a rest, drink and some bacon.

Too soon we were off again, over the bridge and up to a big church. Lots of peoplsees were looking at it and getting there photographs taken, when in Yorks.

Next to the church was a nice park. Dad spotted a sign that said NO POPPYS. What do you think poppy? Stuff them dad I’m going in! Poppyphobes, ggggrrrrrrrrrr

A game of ball later, into town. Yorks is a very busy place lots of peoplsees everywhere. I dodged the peoplsees as we made our way through the town. As we turned a corner I was in a really small street with millions of peoplsees. Social Distancing in Yorks is a shambles.

Lets get out of here dad. City wall walk, might be like the one in Derry. we passed by the big church to get to the walls, quieter here.

When we got to the walls I got a nasty surprise, NO POPPYS! What???? £100 fine??? what are these peoplsees all about dad? “I know Poppysocks, people behaving like this in a pandemic and the only thing they are worried about is no dogs walking their walls.” Let them try and catch me dad, I’ll just say I can’t read English, I am Scottish after all. The walk was OK, not as good as Derry or Lucca though. We walked back across the town to the river and followed it on the other side until the millennium bridge. From there we retraced our steps to the chocolate factory. Mum had a great idea….TAXI! Mum that’s just pure dead brilliant my paws are so sore.
