Abbeys and rivers

On our recent trip to the Yorkshire Dales, we visited Jervelaux Abbey - so pretty and very peaceful

Aysgarth Falls - featured in many movies such as Kevin Costners Robin Hood

Not quite warn enough for a paddle yet!

Fountains Abbey - truly spectacular, and inspite of it being a very busy Bank Holiday Monday, still plenty of room for every body.  It was great to see so many families picnicing and enjoying the outdoors.

Fountains Hall

I love our county.  It has a great coastline, vibrant cities and some awe inspiring countryside and ancient places to see.  You ought to try it. x

I love your county too, it is beautiful.

That first picture is stunning - what flowers are those?

Weren't you brave, putting your toe in the water?

You have been to so many lovely places and you are still discovering more.
I've said it before and I'll say it again you should work for the tourist board!

Both Jervelaux and Fountains are wonderful, aren't they? You're right, Diane, there is so much to enjoy right here in Yorkshire, aren't we lucky? Gorgeous photos, the Yorkshire tourist board should use them! xxxx

You visited some lovely places. I've been to Fountains Abbey but not Jervaulx. There are so many lovely things to see in your special county:)

You've taken some really lovely photos, Diane - you can tell that you've really thought about composition.
I've never visited, but it looks beautiful.
Great pic of you dipping you toe.
