Virtual Coffee Tuesday - A Fun Weekend

Well, I've had a lovely girlie weekend up in beautiful Yorkshire with my friend's Andrea and Tina - Andrea lives in Wormald Green a lovely little hamlet between Harrogate and Ripon. Here's the view from Andrea's bedroom window...


On Sunday, we visited Ripon Cathedral. We weren't permitted to take photos inside, but here's one from their website of a beautiful sculpture...


Having worked up an appetite, we enjoyed lunch at a nearby brasserie - Andrea insisted she didn't want to be photographed, so here's just Tina and me...


We've known each other for 40 years having met in Brownies :)

After lunch we went back to Andrea's, Tina took a bracing walk around the area, I read the papers and Andrea watched the rugby (a game I simply do not understand...).

That evening we settled down to enjoy this movie...


It's absolutely beautiful, and Elsa Zylberstein looks incredibly like Modiglani's wife Jeanne (unlike Omid Djalil who played a young Picasso...). We all thoroughly enjoyed it :)

Well, those are the highlights of my lovely weekend - so what did you guys do? Anything fun?

Do pop over to Amy's and join in the stories, while I have a little nap as I'm still recovering... :)

I understand about your friend being photo-shy, I used to be until I realized my son would not have any kind of record of "me". Brownies?! Oh, my stars! I am guessing you don't mean the eating kind! Ah, the countryside, my soul comes alive outside. Thanks for sharing, love the photos!

gorgeous view! Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I spent mine in Swanage which was also gorgeous (weather-wise etc) with lovely family whom I wished I lived closer to :)
