Yorkshire Day 2011

Today the 1st of August we celebrate Yorkshire Day on this one day each year.

I was in the town of Ilkley and caught some of the events including the one in the above picture a tea party held in the winter gardens. There was tea, Yorkshire parkin and Yorkshire folk to share it with.

The lady on the right in the photo with the little Happy Yorkshire Day flag asked me if I would take their picture. I was given the little pink flag last year by the nice people at Welcome to Yorkshire and I kept it handy for today. The lady at the back was wearing a Yorkshire Tea apron, which I thought was very appropriate.

I will post some more about Yorkshire Day here in Ilkley tomorrow including the launch of the Yorkshire sausage (as someone who is partial to a tasty banger I was interested in this).

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
