Day 5

Woke up close to Whitby Abbey so spent the morning exploring and re-enacting various scenes from Dracula! When I was younger I was a model for the illustrations of Lucy in a version of the story and Whitby has been on my must visit list ever since. Next was Robin Hoods Bay for a pasta and wine lunch. We stayed the night there in a seafarer's room at the White Owl.

Day 3

Having spent a morning at the Turkish baths we are now in the beautiful village of Ripley where we treated ourselves to yummy cheeses and deli treats for a picnic... My personal favourite was the cheese that tasted like fudge!

The Blues Bar, Harrogate

My husband played a fab gig at the friendly Blues Bar last night. Thank you Harrogate for making us feel so welcome.

Summer wanderings day 2

The day has begun with a service station breakfast en route to harrogate and me struggling to look glamorous having slept in a van, a skill I have pretty much mastered even if I do say so myself. Although possibly not today...

Summer wanderings

As I am now on summer holidays I am attempting to record my travels daily using my mobile!
Day 1 was spent at a wedding and beside my lovely devon seaside...

A Perfect BirthDay

Last weekend it was my husband's 40th birthday. His present was an iPhone and I was lucky enough to be able to play with Instagram for the day! We started the day with a picnic on the beach...

After enjoying cava, coffee and croissants and a beautiful warm sunny morning by a blue sea we headed home to get ready for a glamourous lunch at the wonderful Broomhill Art Hotel....

We had two bottles of champagne from his sister so gratefully enjoyed one with our lunch whilst looking out of the french doors into the sun...

The restaurant is part of the slow food movement and my  
Aubergine bean casserole with goats’ cheese, bulgar and spring vegetables was utterly gorgeous. Even more perfect that it was topped with a flower!

After a beautifully leisurely lunch we went to play in the sculpture garden...
