besides the unbridled joy of being there for Gran & Gramps' special day, and of course seeing all the family in and around Great Ayton, i dare say that a big part of the brief trip for Mum and Dad was being able to see our dear friend Bobby.
they went out and about, ending up with an obligatory visit to the pub, but also visiting a place where my Dad (and Gramps) could feast upon what they consider to be some of the finest foods known to man, smoked kippers!
Bobby seems rather happy to have gone there too!
it's great to see Bobby smiling and looking like age has not quite got the better of his health just yet. we all look forward to seeing Bobby, and hope to do so for many more years to come.
now, about that pub i mentioned.....
good to see Mum having a proper pint whilst over there!!
Dad has an uncanny knack of catching people not posing for great pictures. what on earth are the three of them seeking out???
right, a few more pics to post yet! will get to them as soon as i can!!!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and, if you actually like smoked kippers, please bear in mind that not all around you appreciate the scent of them!
