Jeremy Bergstrom, who is in town for his viva (PhD thesis defense), was awakened by a morning snarf!
Todd, Jeremy, and I traveled 1.5 hrs to a cute little town called Harrogate. It's located near York and was a fun little town with some cute shops to see.
We wound up at a shop for lunch called "crepes and creams" where we got the yummiest savory crepes and milkshakes.
Salmon and cream cheese crepe! Yum!
Chunky monkey milkshake- vanilla ice cream, chocolate chips, bananas, coffee and chocolate syrup! Slurp!
We topped off our lunch with a gourmet cupcake from "Cupcakes by Charley".
But, alas, the store was packed with people (it was Saturday after all) and to save myself the embarrassment I instead looked quietly through the fabrics. I found a beautiful fabric that I considered trying to make into a dress for a friend's upcoming Florida wedding. But when I discovered that the fabric I fell in love with was 12.99/meter I decided that my sewing skills would need to be perfected before such expenses could be justified!
On the way home, we stopped at Ripon Cathedral, which has a lot of history but is really well maintained. It has a small library of Roman artifacts that were found on the site and displays many of the silver vessels used previously in the life of the cathedral. It also has a small crypt below the sanctuary.
|Todd headed down to the crypt.|
We had a nice time on our trip and got to eat some really yummy food....always a must for any Brewer adventure.
