We are having one of our day’s out,courtesy of Sainsbury’s retired staff Association to Harewood House,just outside Leeds tomorrow,so really looking forward to it,as it is a long time since I went.We have to be there for 10am,for morning coffee,and then we have a tour round the house,followed by lunch.The afternoon is then free to look round the Gardens etc,at our leisure.My friend is driving,as we no longer have coaches to take us,as they are now so expensive,and our area covers the whole of Yorkshire,and Lincolnshire too,so no longer viable,financially.No one minds,as we are fortunate that we are still able to have these lovely get togethers.Hope the weather stays fine for us,and I will report back soon,hopefully with some nice photo’s……

Thanks.I had a brilliant day out...warm and no rain.:o).A wonderful place...but,guess what?...with leaving so early ,I forgot my camera !!!...I didn't realise till it was too late,and so very annoyed with myself,most of the day,at all the missed opportunities to take lovely views,etc.I wouldn't mind,but I had deleted all old pics,so I had a clear memory card....I will definitely go again,as it is one of the best Stately homes I have been to,...Sorry,folks,
Lou...I agree,its lovely there...and that is where we went for lunch..."Bizzy Lizzies"....Had to ,with a name like that.Lol....Superb,and there are three of them now..so very popular...,
