A really busy July and finally one night off . We've had walkers & tourers & cyclists, visitors coming by train & car & motorbikes, and people just escaping to the peace & quiet. Some know the area better than we do, others discovering the Dales for the first time and seeing what a beautiful part of the country this is.
Working in the garden was interrupted one day by a succession of probably over 50 old cars, mostly of pre-war vintage (similar in appearance to my Dad's first car - a Morris 8). We later found out that there had been a rally at Harrogate, at which a Dutch couple who stayed with us, had been with their Triumph TR3. What a wonderfully deep throbbing sound! It was absolutely spotless - outside, inside, engine - absolutely gleaming! A pity it rained!
