TBT: More of a 1971 Sunny Day in Yorkshire

In 2014, I did an earlier post about this day in Yorkshire. There is not a lot of rhyme or reason to some of my older scanning I fear. Now I am paying the price and going through albums in order. These photos tell more of that earlier story. I now see that we had a day in the Yorkshire Dales and yes, as my friend Cat noted, not as close to my Knaresborough home as I'd said. She was living in Yorkshire when I wrote the first post and went "over the top' to Skipton a lot more than I ever did.

My cousin Donnie, who was about 15 then, down at the water with my son and husband. There was nothing my son loved more than skipping stones in the river, here the River Wharfe.



I don't know exactly where in the Dales this was exactly  but it certainly gives you an idea of the height of that massive rock formation. Lots of open land for little boys to run and run also.

Not many trips up here after we had two sons and not many days I remember as sunny and bright. These days were special.

Travel Wit Me Tuesday: A Stop in Knaresborough

December 8, 2016 our driver picked us up in Harrogate for a day in York. I had said I wanted to stop at #7 Crestholme Close but as we drove through Knaresborough, I decided that it was the only stop I wanted. I might have enjoyed a day walking around the town but just not that day. I was still tired and York would be enough for a down memory lane day. However, this was the stop I wanted.




It was a long time since I had actually stood on this spot. This house was built in 1968 and we moved in probably in late September or early October of that year. We stayed until summer of 1975 when we left England. A long time for us, though we didn't know how full of moves our future would be.
