This year the hubby and I were stayed in the UK. We headed for the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
Here is our cottage. We were staying in Leyburn, Wensleydale.
We did a five mile walk around the spectacular waterfalls at Ingleton.
I took the Wensleydale railway into Redmire to visit Castle Bolton while my poor hubby walked the eight miles to get there (he is insane). I hired an audio guide to give us the history. It was hilarious. My hubby said it was worth the money for the comedy value alone. Let's just say that a bit of editing goes a long way!
Here I am at the riverside in Middleham after having tea in the village square and watching all the local riders come back from exercising their horses.
I don't think I've ever eaten so much cheese as I did on this holiday. I discovered that I love Wensleydale with Pineapple after we taste tested cheeses at the cremery in Hawes. We also spent a day in York but I was too tired to take any pictures. It turns out that I love the Yorkshire Dales. I love the slow pace. I love the streams and becks which are everywhere. I love the smell of countryside. I love the peace.
Well that concludes the holiday snaps for 2012!
