Day Sixteen ~ Boats and Bells!

Today's Youth Perspective ~ Charlie Schindler


Today is Yorkshire Day! We woke up to a beautiful morning and after breakfast we headed to Bolling Hall. A museum house that dates back to the 1600’s, it belonged to the Bolling family, of which Richard Bolling who immigrated to America in 1660 and ended up marring Pocahontas’s granddaughter. For lunch we traveled into Bradford and went to the Storehouse & Café, this is a volunteer café that is run using food discarded by stores, and is ‘pay as you can’. Next was Cartwright Hall, an art museum that has a deep history in the wool industry in Bradford. This was adjacent to Lister Park. We had tea and rode pedalos on the lake in the park. After that we went to Saltaire, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and full of history as one of the largest wool mills in England. Then off to St. Paul's, Shipley, where we worked on making signs for the upcoming Pride parade, had a wonderful dinner prepared by Alison (Sarah's mother) and Rachel. Afterwards we were able to walk up the tower of the church and ring the bells. It was a wonderful ending to the day.
