Bolton Abbey

A few days back we had a family trip to Bolton Abbey. Somewhere I haven't been since I was a young girl, and somewhere the husband hasn't been yet. So we all set off, me with towel in tow hoping I could find a good spot to have a nice little paddle, the only thing I've wanted to do all summer.

Unfortunately my hopes of a paddle were dwindled as there were quite high bankings to walk down from where we had parked, and I wouldn't have been able to get back up... Pregnancy problems. We did have a nice walk and a Yorkshire Dale's ice cream to cheer me up along the way. 

We decided to head over to the Yorkshire Dale's ice cream parlour about 15 minutes away to experience their American style diner and have lunch. By this point I was extremely tired and when we were told we would have an hour's wait for lunch I was close to tears. To be honest, going somewhere free in the middle of the holidays wasn't a good idea. I don't really like children and there were a lot around, at this point I was scared of being walked into or knocked over. So we decided to head home via Skipton. 

One of my favourite restaurants is between Skipton and Keighley, so we popped in there for lunch. I couldn't have been happier as there was no one in! I had a really nice non-alcoholic cocktail and a bacon and brie sandwich with soup. YUM.
