We got back from our holiday in North Yorkshire and Northumberland on Saturday. The weather has been mixed, mostly dull and cloudy but it's still been warm and we've managed days on the beach and had a nice relaxing time.
The base for our first week was Pickering. We stayed in a lovely cottage not far from the town centre. I took a few photos to show you, I always like to see where people have stayed.
It had a lovely garden too, plenty of room for Archie to run around and the neighbours were really friendly. We had a chat over the garden fence about the veggies they were growing in their own garden.
We had lots of days out...Whitby.
Robin Hood's Bay.
I had to laugh at this sign I saw in the greencrocer's window.
I've only seen the 60's tv drama, Heartbeat, which is set in the fictional village of Aidensfield but filmed in Goathland, a couple of times but many of the sights here are what you might see on the programme.
The sheep on the moors here just wander free. This one looks as though it's wearing a pair of earrings.
We had a wander around Peasholm Park then sat and listened to the organist for a while.
It was a chilly day when we visited Scarborough but it didn't stop Eleanor donning her bikini. I think she realised she'd made a mistake though.
There were other places we visited too but I'll tell you about those in future posts.
Typically, it was a beautiful day on Saturday when we arrived home. It would have been nice to have that sunshine for the whole fortnight we were away but at least I got the washing straight in the machine and managed to get it all washed, dried and ironed.
