The weather forecast for the weekend was poor. At best it was to be cloudy and cool for mid May and the possibility of a few isolated showers wasn't ruled out. As it turned out the forecast was fairly rubbishy itself and we had a very pleasant weekend with some decent sunny spells although a little on the cool side out of the sun and in a coolish breeze.
Saturday afternoon was spent tidying up on the plot and on Sunday we had a trip into the North Yorkshire Moors to visit the North Yorkshire Moors Railway which was holding the last day of its Scottish Branch Line Gala.
On our way we got some stunning views.
We had intended to head to Grosmont but for one reason or another we never made it there.
We visiting Goathland and Levisham stations instead.
