We have just returned from our weekend away at Harrogate. We had to stop overnight both ways as it was a long drive for oldies but we stayed withour son and his family and it was great.
The hotel was very nice and they fed us well but we hadn’t realised how hilly Harrogate is. Here on the South Coast it is flat and we don’t have stairs in our bungalow so our knees weren’t used to steep slopes.
As everywhere, there were closed shops but Betty’s was open and we queued for lunch and bought some fat rascal scones to bring home. ( They didn’t get any further than our son’s!)
On Sunday we strolled round the gardens – for two hours! Hubby went to look for somewhere he had stayed in the 1960’s but it had been knocked down in 1976 and rebuilt.
That’s our holiday for this year. We were glad to get home and will now continue our search for a four legged companion. The local kennels has a nine year old schnautzer, but I’m not sure about that. We usually get a mongrel.
