Fountains Abbey in Ripon
Livvie and daddy enjoying the sunshine.
Look at that sun beaming through the window! It was SO hot.
Our beloved Chunky Bus. :0)
We had the most gorgeous weekend away in Ripon which is near York. The sun shone and although the air smelled of cow poo we had a great time! I have come back totally energised and am looking forward to our weeks holiday with Dawn and Glen next week in Northumberland. The slide show is of Fountains Abbey. It was spectacularly beautiful but unfortunately it was so hot that we couldn't walk it all. In fact it was my fault. With the addition of surgical stockings, over which I was wearing jeans and hiking socks and a pair of silicon boobs tucked into a double skinned bra I was near melting point and couldn't manage the distance. I did stop at one point and dip my feet in the cool lake but that didn't help for long! We are definitely going back when the air is crisp in Autumn and then we shall walk it all. :0)
