Before my departure to Spain, my mum and her partner (just back from a holiday in Spain themselves) decided to take me on a day out to experience just a taste of what the beautiful Yorkshire has to offer.
First stop was to have tea and coffee in a location that clearly hosts a lot of weddings, with its large reception hall and church. Always good to take notes in case some fool wants to marry me in the future…
Next we visited The Coldstones Cut, which is a huge quarry that also features the largest sculpture in Britain. Apparently on a good day you can see for miles from the top. I have just finished my photography course (passing with full marks, I not so humbly add), so my mum wanted to take me somewhere good for photos. Even though it is now October, it’s been quite clear and sunny these past few days. Except for this day, of course. It was incredibly misty, but the Yorkshire countryside was still beautiful.
My shoes make it a hipster shot… (seriously though, instagrammers are obsessed with feet)
Finally we had a late lunch in a picturesque little village (completely forgotten the name…) I am from a rather uninteresting city in Yorkshire, and although I am a proud city dweller I adore little villages and market towns. These are what make Yorkshire so lovely to explore (and other parts of Britain too I suppose..) Maybe one day when I’m old and even more cynical than I am now I will move to one and embrace the friendliness of villagers.
