Scotter to Lincoln

Not very far but we also don't get to drive a straight line like the line shows.

One of Koi's bosses came to visit the jobsite. While here he wanted to go "see something cool." So it was back to Linconln Cathedral. We hadn't seen the whole inside yet and the town is easy/fast to get to. So off we went. When we first arrived there was still church service going on so we went and ate lunch and walked around in the rain. There was a bike race going through town so there were lots of people to watch. Not much else happened. It took a while to see the cathedral and take pictures. I will let the pictures do the talking. Sorry if some of them are blurry.

My camera couldnt zoom any closer. I circled him for you. He's devilish elf looking thing with his legs crossed. We were hoping to see the Lincoln Castle but a tour had already left and we weren't very excited to walk around in the rain more. We did make it all the way around the Cathedral this time and took some more exterior photos. Enjoy!
