Woollie Weekend

Girls weekend away - 10 girls and 2 boys......boys at the girls weekend....what's the world coming to.....

Gone are the days of cocktails in water pistols till dawn, now in our "grown up" years we have glasses of wine, cups of tea and a breast feeding couch!!

This year, 10 girls and 2 boys under the age of 1 came from all corners of the UK (and one from Switzerland) to the Yorkshire Dales for a weekend of relaxation, walking and eating. We were 4 short in number, all missed, but that just meant more cake for the rest of us.

The Yorkshire Dales - muted shades from brown to green making up the patchwork quilt countryside interrupted by dry stane dykes criss crossing over the hills and dales, disappearing into the distance, trees bending under the pressure of the wind, fluffy sheep dotting the hillsides and rolling roads taking you off into your imagination.

Your lovely photos take me back to childhood. During the summer holidays my mother would take three of her four children on the train from Liverpool to visit family in Whitby. Thank you.
