Yorkshire tea

Last weekend we drove up to Yorkshire, to visit Tom's lovely grandparents who live in a place called Knaresborough. The sun came out and we had a brilliant walk through the pretty town, stopping in antiques shops along the way and finally taking in the amazing view from the ruined castle on the hill. The viaduct below, with trains passing along it was a real sight and we loved spotting the Trompe-loeil paintings in various windows along the way (see bottom photo). We came home very full after being given lots of scumptious home cooked food; fish and chips, trifle, cake, cups of tea and fresh pancakes in the morning! A very relaxing weekend all in all. (Tom's grandfolks sometimes read this blog so just wanted to say a little hello to Teddy and Enid in case they are reading!)
