Bolton Abbey

Hello! How are you all today? It's been so sunny here this weekend. We decided to make the most of these last few sunny days and get out for a picnic. I've lived for nearly twenty years in West Yorkshire but I've never visited

Bolton Abbey

, about 30 minutes drive from Leeds. In the heart of the Dales, it's home to riverside walks, woodland trails, historic ruins to explore and even sandy beaches to build sandcastles.

We spent time chilling out with our picnic, building stone sculptures, exploring the woods, paddling and the Boy even crossed the river on the stepping stones - no way was I doing it, I'm way too chicken for that these days! We returned tired yet happy, it's a glorious place to spend time together. We'll be back soon. x
