First game results--my high score of the night!
Richard won the second game, so we played a deciding third game...
...and the competition made us both do worse! But I won, best out of 3.
And then Richard beat me at air hockey (7-3)
Hollywood Bowl is pretty great--it's down by the movie theater in Kirkstall, and it's got 32 lanes, a bar/restaurant area, and a big arcade. I thought it wouldn't be as good as American bowling alleys, but it was actually better!

Conservative party billboard--the funny part is that the billboard has a broken panel, and it talks about our "broken society"!
The country around Goodrich Castle in Herefordshire where we had a picnic

The weather's finally improving a bit, so we went out to Otley Chevin Park today for a hike up to a view, and then a walk around Otley. On Saturday we went to the York Railway Museum again and saw some of the exhibits we'd missed last time.
