Meeting A Shropshire Lad (and Lass) in Yorkshire

Well this picture should let my secret out in the open! Guess who I met today at the Wolds Way Lavender Farm...Tess and George the Lad!!!

After all the rain we have been having here in Yorkshire the sun came out for the morning and me and Trilby and Crybbe travelled to the Lavender Farm to meet up with George and Tess and their peeps and we had a wonderful time exploring together. I am sure George and Tess will be blogging about their holiday before long and will have some super action shots of the day but here are some of the photos Leigh got of our time together at this lovely dog-friendly lavender farm:

There were lots of walks through woodland and fields with lots of wicker sculptures like these deer.

There were also some scary monsters that I tried to warn George about but he is so brave they didn't bother him...or Tess!

And we found some giant games to play in the Maze while we were trying to discover how to get out:

George had a go at quoits and then we tried a game of chess:

It was getting really hot by this time and George decided to have a rest :

And then he and Tess found just what they wanted - some water to jump in!

Well you weren't going to catch us getting our paws wet so we made our way back through the wild flower fields:

Past the railway crossing:

"Come on everybody - let's go to the tearoom!"

And we all went back for a rest at the teashop before we had to go home.

Crybbe and Trilby saying goodbye to Tess.

It was such an exciting day to meet George and Tess in the furs and extra special for Crybbe because it was his 5th birthday too!

PeeS - I also had the chance to get in a pawsome photo opportunity for one of the Blog Olympic sports - pics on the way soon :-)
