Good morning...........

Hope you are well today, weather man say a dry day but it is very grey here and I doubt it very much.

I had a day out in Yorkshire yesterday and came home all worn out lol, I visited Helmsley which is a beautiful old market town. It was so busy and all the independent shops were open. (no fast foods or charity shops)

 Superb butchers (I bought Gloucester old spot,  pork, cider and apple sausages) The bakers were cooking all day and the smell of pies and breads was delicious. (bought both lol) There is even a candlestick makers......

 Sat in the market square and had a rum and raisin chocolate cone while people watching. Below is the book shop.

The Parish Church is beautiful, I did leave the castle and birds of prey for another visit.

There was confetti outside from a wedding the previous day.

Look at this stunning view, love the black face sheep.
Thank you for your visit
Hugs Tilly x

Oooo what a simply stunning card.

I'm so jealous of you going to Helmsley - one of the first time i visited Alan in Yorkshire, we went there and stayed at the 'The Pheasant Inn' and i keep nagging him to take me back there, as it was so relaxing and peaceful, Luv Sam x
