from Going, to Not Going,  to Being There
Castle Howard was the very reason that I decided to go to Yorkshire. I first saw photos of the manor house years ago, then like many others, I saw the TV adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited, which was filmed at Castle Howard. Then I learnt that York is the nearest major town and planned my trip to York.

Considering all this, it was ironic that I almost cancelled visiting Castle Howard in order to revisit Whitby, Danby and Lealholm when I drowned my camera and I though I lost all the previous day's images. But then bad weather turned me back from Whitby, "forcing" me to return to my original plan to see Castle Howard. Perhaps I was meant to see it, and in the end I was very pleased by it.
