A watery week in Yorkshire!

We have just had a week away in Skipton. Our accommodation in this cottage was superb, albeit some of the furniture was old fashioned. The bed had both wooden head board and foot board and the mattress although cosy was inclined to dip in the middle, so just as well DH and I get on!
This was the front but there was also a communal garden just outside this front area.
One late afternoon we sat here and had a bread, a selection of cheeses and pickles bought from the market with red wine, picnic and very enjoyable it was too!
We would have liked more sunshine but in spite of the fact that the sun was hidden behind grey clouds for most of the week, we did enjoy ourselves.
We had a trip on the canal one afternoon and then stopped in the nearby cafe for coffee and cakes!
All very delicious. We ate out most evenings and the Woolly Sheep pub had very delicious meals. So now of course we are back on the food plan and I intend to be back to the weight I was by Wednesday's weigh in, before we went!
And as well as lots of cakes we had to have .....

......Because how could you not have fish and chips when on holiday! LOL

It was a pretty little town and quite busy especially on market days.
We went so that we could go to my step daughter's degree ceremony in Bradford,and that all went well.
We're back home and it is wonderful. Today we have got up to sun and blue skies and everything in the garden looks great!

Sounds like you had a lovely holiday in Skipton. You can't beat fish and chips from the seaside.

Can you post me a piece of that cake! The canal looks lovely too - did not realise there were any there!

Home is always a nice place too!

Must be nice to get away with DH. I'm hoping to get away with a friend perhaps in August. Glad you enjoyed your time, grey skies or not. :D

We have never had a holiday in Yorkshire but you make it look very inviting here, especially the canal.
