We'll be packing our stuff tonight so that we're ready to leave the cottage tomorrow morning just after 7:00 - that will be the start of our journey home to Germany which will probably take us about 12 hours altogether (provided there won't be any significant delays for our trains and the flight!).
It was another beautiful day in Ripon today, sunny most of the time, with some big fat clouds there but plenty of wind and not a single drop of rain.
We took it slow and leisurely as tomorrow will be rather exhausting. Went round the shops at the market square and into the cathedral one last time, where we found there were the flower arrangements of the Ripon Flower Club on display. This picture (my sister took it with her mobile) was the winner of the theme "Summer Palette":
If you look closely, you can see there are strawberries (top) and apricots (far right) in the arrangement.
Did you know today was/is "World Cat Day"? To honour it (just kidding - we don't "do" such days, really), my sister took this video of the friendly cat who lives in the neighbourhood and has been visiting us nearly every day for the last two weeks:
And here's me last night, your very own Live Blogger! (Don't mind my hair - it does not look like that normally.) The picture was taken while I was writing yesterday's blog post about Harewood House.
"See" you soon again, with tons of pictures from our Yorkshire Holiday!
