A Grand Day Out!

This week, on Wednesday, in fact, Mr C suggested
that we have a day out. We haven't had a lot of spare cash
 lately to splurge on petrol but after selling my 
Mum's flat and all the trauma involved, we decided, 
we deserved a treat!


It wouldn't be as grand, as a trip to the moon but we had
been promising ourselves that we would drive around part of
the 'Grand Depart', cycle route.



It was a beautiful day. We packed the car, with maps, picnic
 and Daisy of course.


Here is a pictoral record of our trip!


We took a slight detour here. This is between Leyburn and Reeth.
Over the Army firing range but worth it ..... the heather was spectacular!


Below, is probably the most photographed view, of N. Yorkshire.
Gunnerside, with all it's drystone walls and little barns.


Autumn Hips and Haws.



Close up of, one of those little barns, which are so indicative of Yorkshire


Glimpse of a sunflower mosaic, which believe it or not, was the 
roof of a barn. The building being hidden in the dip.


 The last two pics, are of where we picnic'd.
On the side of Buttertubs Pass.


and that's it ......
A grand day out, you will agree!!
We were scenic'd out by the end of it.
Hope you have a fun trip planned, this weekend!
