Why our i'net providers can't leave well enough alone, I'll never know!
Onto a couple of wonderful days out.
We visited Fountains one day, then told S-I-L and she remarked we hadn't taken her, so we went again another day. This particular day we just visited the abbey and grounds.
As you can see the ruins are beautiful. Again I didn't take many photos.
This day we we started at the Studley Royal end, had a cuppa at the cafe and were about to start our wandering, when at a nearby table we overheard a conversation by some of the volunteers, who then said hello to us as we went by. I remarked, as she told her co-workers that she'd baked them some Anzac Biscuits and offered them to us to try too. As she went to explain what they were, I said I knew, as I was Australian and also baked them at home. She then asked if she'd got the recipe correct, which she had. As we'd just eaten, we didn't try, but we all had a good laugh about me passing at that moment.
