A hood down Dales day out. 15th March 2009

The sun was playing out good style this moning so we decided that we should get Chester into the back of  the car, get the hood down, sunglasses on and set off. We decided to go over the moors past the Cow and Calf, scenic route to Burnsall. Burnsall was packed as everyone else must have decided to take advantage of  the glorious weather so we ended up at  The Craven Arms,  Appletreewick again.  Sat outside, G had a couple of pints of Hetton Pale ale(yummy), Roast beef  lunch was spot on. D decided on the Steak and Ale pie which was delicious(broke her Lent abstinence of alcohol but we decided it didn’t count…). Suitably fueled we walked along the riverside path to Burnsall, Chester was very brave and had a swim, guess what we ended up at another pub….yes, the Red Lion. We sat outside overlooking the river and D had tea, coffee and cognac  for G. The other diners meals looked pretty good. We strolled back to Appletreewick, it was still warm enough to drive to Betty’s in Ilkley with the hood down, a box of  fancies to take home for the kids.

Home to a fire in the garden(kids had had a BBQ), finished off  the day with a little nightcap. A beautiful day!!

G, D and Chester.
