Apart from my chest and memory problems etc, we had a lovely summer, although most of this was through staying at our static caravan in Barnard Castle where the air is much cleaner that at home
I find it relaxing here and most of the people around the town are very friendly.
During this time I enjoyed lots of short walks around the town and River side, where there is so much to see.
Looking down towards the main shops and market place
One day we went on the Settle to Carlisle railway which has only recently opened again after the landslide
We also went on a coach tip to see the Great Yorkshire show at Harrogate. This day was very hot, and I got tired very quickly, so I never took any photographs
This was a lovely day as it reminded my of the local County Shows we used to go to as children, however I don't think that they were on this scale
I used to be a Special Constable with Durham Police force before I got married, and worked at many of these events
On another day we went to Wolsingham show in the Wear Valley.
Here we saw lots of farming equipment and animals, along with Alpacas which was a novelty.
There were a lot of old machinery and cars on display to which brought back many memories
