Zoom - zoom - zoom

Last weekend we zoomed up to the North of England to visit our friend Carol and whilst we were up there, we visited a small town called Richmond, a village called Gosmont and the seaside town of Whitby.
Here are some pictures:

I love steam trains. They just have that special character.

I am seeing places in England I've never had the opportunity to visit. I love market towns they are so full of character. The steam trains bring back childhood memories of trips to the seaside, no holidays we were too poor, just the odd day trip, but how we enjoyed them.

I am always amazed by your photos. They are great and I can just feel myself walking down those streets begging my husband to let me go in at least one or two stores. Thanks for taking us with you.

Definitely not what I see around here! Once again, great photos, Erik. I love when you "take us along" on your journeys.
