UK........A day in the Dales

Yesterday the sun shone (rare this August)..................so I fancied a day in God's Own Country

I headed up to Masham and over to Leighton Reservoir, then over Dallowgill Moor......................the heather was in full bloom and spectacular









Lunch was in the square @ Grassington ........................it was busy



Only parking ...............outside the Spar - handy for a sandwich too





Onwards past Kilnsey, towards Kettlewell where the annual Scarecrow Festival was taking place



Which are the Scarecrows:



Just some old tractors (GSA included)



GSA in the sunshine..............



Spectacular view over Littondale



Tried some 'onboard shots', going back down into Wensleydale





Limestone scar, high up in Wensleydale



A typical Yorkshire Dales farmhouse .................




A very enjoyable day out on the new steed

Gorgeous shots. I would love to do some riding over there; especially making a trip to the Isle of Man. The wife still has a grandmother and a few aunt, uncles and cousins in England. Thanks for posting. You're lucky...would be great to go for a ride and then hit a pub for a pint.

I also think you guys have some pretty sweet magazines devoted to motorcycling. I like MCN and some of the others like Ride and Bike (if it's still around).
