Day Trip To…Harrogate

A few weeks ago, we went to Harrogate for a little day trip. I’ve been once before to the knitting and stitching show there but didn’t really get to see much of the town as there was too much to see in the exhibition centre. That said, my dad and I were dispatched to get the car as my Granma, who’s 90, uses a wheelchair and it was raining. Both of us are easily distracted and ended up getting a bit lost because we weren’t paying attention to where we going. We ended up walking past a cheese shop and of course we had to go in! I managed to get a Christmas present for my father in law, so it really did solve a problem!

Well, cheese is cheese and the lure of it was enough to get me to back to Harrogate. We didn’t go straight there, but instead went to Betty’s Tea Room for some lunch followed by a wander around. It was raining, of course, but that didn’t dampen our spirits or our day. I took a number of photographs of flowers and doors, like you do and that took more time than anticipated. We were running out of time and it looked like we wouldn’t make it to the cheese shop but we stumbled upon it again! I was so happy. I was just coming out of The Remnant House, where I bought some fabric to make a dress, and crossing the road to meet my husband, who was coming out of the record shop, when I saw the cheese shop again! Amazing. I treated us to some lovely Yorkshire Blue, my favourite of the blue cheeses; some Brie and Rich loves really spicy chilli cheese and they have a lovely one there. I may have eaten a bit of the Blue in the car on the way home.

I’m convinced this shop pops up when you need it. And you always need cheese, right?
