Now in Skipton

Well, got here despite the rain showers last night. Paul had a pint of Timothy Taylors and then it was a fish ‘n chip supper. Yum! Moored up outside the old warehouses they are converting into flats, before the swing bridge into the park, and slept well. However, didn’t wake up ’til late as the heavy rain and low cloud made it so dark we thought it was still the middle of the night at 6am. Even the dogs didn’t want to step off the boat, the rain was so heavy! I ask you, where is the summer?

I have offered to give a hand with the teas and cakes tomorrow, when my cousin Norman and his wife Margaret open their garden to the public, but I don’t know if I will be needed if the rain continues. Here is a picture of their garden, taken last year late one sunny afternoon. It is really lovely, so if you are in the area I would recommend you call in.

Paul and I are planning to stay around Skipton until early Setember. It is my Aunt Nora’s 80th birthday on 6 Sept and after that we will be making a dash for Leeds and ALT-C for Paul.
