Yorkshire Getaway - part 3

As it was such a gorgeous day after our trip to York we decided to visit a National Trust property nearby, Fountains Abbey (read more about it here).  It is the most beautiful and tranquil place ...





















and Studley Water Gardens are literally round the bend from the Abbey, Dusty just LOVED all the pheasants!





I had a terrible feeling of unbalance crossing this narrow 'bridge', eek!



We started to go back through the deer park, and saw St. Michael's Church, but absolutely no sign of any of the hundreds of deer, where could they be?


Hubby came away with some vinyl for himself (rare Ultravox) and some for a friend (Jethro Tull), and I found a few little bits & pieces in one really good charity shop...

now up on the wall next to the very large painting I found last September

this lovely little pomander, still smelling slightly of spicy lavender



and this cute 60s/70s (?) paperweight which is foiled so shimmers in the light



I think we were all sorry to say goodbye to Yorkshire after a couple of great days away, and with Dusty being such a good boy we'll definitely be taking him on holiday with us again; and hopefully we'll visit Yorkshire again too. x
