Mick took a half day holiday from work yesterday so we decided to make the most of the extra time we had together and go on our date day.
It's a while since we've been to Wetherby, a small market town about ten miles from where we live, so we decided we'd head there, have a mooch around the shops and call for something to eat.
The car park by the river was very busy but we eventually found a space.
A family of ducks were having a snooze at the water's edge.
The main roads through the town are always busy, though quite a few shops have closed down over the last couple of years which is sad.
There aren't many high street stores in Wetherby, I love all the little independent shops.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, the streets are much quieter.
The cottages in this row are so pretty, tucked away in the back streets.
There are many different eateries in Wetherby offering a selection of different types of cuisine, so we were spoilt for choice.
In the end, we decided to have our lunch at the Wetherby Whaler, a Yorkshire chain of fish and chip restaurants. The take away shop is downstairs whilst the restaurant is above it.
Mick's not a huge lover of fish, in fact, I can't remember the last time he ate fish, but we both thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and didn't need anything else to eat for the rest of the day. Just as well really as I'm supposed to be trying to lose a few pounds before my holidays.
It was another lovely date which we both enjoyed.
