English Countryside

Just looking at these photos makes me feel incredibly calm for some reason - perhaps its the soft blur the Helios lens adds to the photos (I really need to use this camera again soon!)  or perhaps its the content of the photos. Either way, they're making me happy! How did I forget that I took these last year?!

Cow and Calf Rocks Part I

I didn't know much about the Cow and Calf Rocks in Ilkley other than that it was a beautiful location with stunning views - so I had a quick look on the internet which knows all and this is what I found on Wikipedia:

"According to legend, the Calf was split from the Cow when the giant Rombald was fleeing an enemy, and stamped on the rock as he leapt across the valley. The enemy, it is said, was his angry wife."

Cockpit Farm Tea Rooms

The other weekend we did a mini tour of Yorkshire with Thomas's parents - starting in Otley and driving along the moors to Ilkley afterwards (photos to follow of course!) and along the way between Otley and Ilkley we stopped at the Cockpit Tea Rooms which Thomas found on Tripadvisor and it was amazing! I had the afternoon tea - where you got a sandwich followed by a scone with lots of tea. I love tea (being English and all) so I was in Darjeeling heaven haha.

I'm a little sad that I caught the beginning of the film with this last photo as all the pots on the wall looked adorable so I've put it on here anyway.

If you're ever heading to Otley or Ilkley definitely check the Cockpit Tea Rooms!
