Yorkshire is soo pretty! I am so glad that you wrote that blog and showed the images, which are very beautiful indeed. I have lived in England for about 15 years now and am constantly amazed and completely besotted by her beauty. Have you visited Lake District yet? It is very beautiful and picturesque. And the coast line? Stunning views almost everywhere you choose to stop. Cornwall? Gorgeous. And the rest of the UK - so beautiful too. Wales? Ancient castles and monasteries, sandy beaches, amazing forests. And everywhere you go you will meet some wonderful friendly people. Thanks for the blog and good luck with your beautiful photos.
