Monday saw us head to Holmfirth and then up to Holme Moss, one of the stages in Yorkshire of the Tour de France. How they rode up these hills and then down is beyond me.

|Typical road in this part of Yorkshire. It really is up hill and down dale and oh so beautiful.|

Tuesday saw us catch up on some washing, then back to Temple Newsam to meet Jo from Through the Keyhole. She arrived with her daughter and dog Archie. It was so lovely meeting her and we chatted away in wonderful sunshine and will catch up again before we head home. I just had the feeling we might click when we met and I'm sure we did. Below is the lovely gift she gave me and I had the pattern put aside for the fingerless gloves and will certainly make use of them next winter.
|My lovely mittens and some yummy biscuits.|
From here we had 360deg views over 7 counties.

|Tram with a destination sign of somewhere I've mentioned in these last 2 posts.|
|Love the warning sign on this tram.|

Sorry! Hope you are all having a good week and take care.
