“The city, no matter how small, is corrupt and unrepentant, while the sunshine is brighter in the country, making people more wholesome.” ~ Lori Lansens
Idle-Chatter is the midweek word prompt over on GC and my Site Weekly Prompts, this is my second response to our challenge
A couple of days ago, I drove over to the village of Bradley, just outside of the market town of Skipton, and approximately forty-five minutes away from my home. I was accompanied by two old friends, and the purpose of our journey was to visit our friend Chris who had recently downsized from her large family home, and with husband Avram, had moved to a cottage in Bradley.
As can be imagined, the chatter in the car was non-stop as we three friends caught up on a few weeks of gossip.
Once past the little town of Ilkley and back into the open countryside, the views were truly magnificent, and more than once one of us was heard to say, “Oh, just look at the view!”
Our arrival in the pretty little village brought about more of our enthusiastic comments.
Chris’s cottage was picture perfect, and once inside, we found it was something of a tardis, it was stunning and had been updated to the highest standard. We had much to admire, compliment, question and talk about.
I was particularly fascinated by the ‘Hobbies Room’. Chris’s husband Avram is a retired web designer, and his artistic talent and eye for detail are amazing. I was very impressed with the large and magnificent display of models he had painted himself, needless to say we had more questions and lots to talk about here.
Next on our agenda was a visit to the village pub, The Slater’s Arms.
Lunch was taken here in this olde worlde Slater’s Arms, and although small, it was overflowing with interest, and provided more than one talking point. We chatted to the friendly landlady, and to a couple of jovial locals who were sitting at the bar, and our delicious lunch proved to be another talking point.
Our journey home opened up more stunning views and more Oohs and Ahs from the three of us.
When writing this post, I wished I’d had more time to include footage from my Dash Cam of the awesome views, ah well, perhaps another day.
