Today we re going to go on a virtual visit to Yorkshire, England. Why on earth are we doing this, I can hear you asking.
Well, it all started when I found the most beautiful blog. Castles, Crowns, and Cottages. I am in love with the beauty on this blog, you must check it out. Today, is the first day of the, Europe: Simply irresistible link party. It will be a virtual tour of Europe. Places that bloggers have been, or dream of going someday.
I have mentioned that my family is from England. I was born in Portsmouth, but left as a baby. My mom was raised in Preston, and my Nana was from Yorkshire. We are taking a trip to Yorkshire because I think the English countryside is amazingly beautiful. Also, I have read every single book that James Herriot ever wrote, and his description of Yorkshire and the countryside has always made me want to go there.

These are the colors and the landscape I would love to see.
I do remember visiting some old churches when we went for a a visit. I was 7, but I can still remember a lot of our trip. These old churches are wonderful.
The old stone stiles, and barns. How many of these did James Herriot go through, or over?
And the classic thatched roof English cottage. Doesn’t that look so cozy? What a beautiful garden. The English do love a nice garden.
I love this old phone box.
And the village, I could wander those small streets, then stop and have tea and scones. With clotted cream of course.
I hope you enjoyed our small trip to Yorkshire. Be sure to continue the Europe tour through the other participating blogs.
