A Celebration in York

The 3rd of August 1968 was the day two young people got married and, after a few trials and tribulations are still married today. That was Jane and I, you can work out how many years that has been, I'm not good with big numbers. LOL.

To celebrate we took a trip out to one of our favourite cities, York. It has been many years since we were last there and our day out didn't disappoint.

We took a train from Barnsley to Leeds and then on to York and here are just a few of the pics I took.

The one and only York Minster.

Just off the train and about to walk through the city gate right behind Jane.

Locke Park Gala and Classic Car Show

Sunday 9th August 2015 and Jane and I went to one of our local parks in Barnsley and spent an hour or two reminiscing whilst wondering around the Classic Car Show at Locke Park.

The sad part is we are old enough not only to recognise these old cars, but, we actually owned and drove a few of them.

It was a great Sunday afternoon out especially seeing the Morgan +4  a car we always dreamt of owning when we were younger.

More pictures can be seen on Jane's Blog here:

Jane with a classic Morris Minor about mid 60's

Lovely red MG

A couple of 'Rollers'

There just had to be a Morgan+4 this one was for sale for £23,000
if we sold our house in Crete we could afford it. Lovely car. 

70's Bently

This Jaguar was probably my favourite car of the show.

This is just a very small selection of the many cars there, I reckon there must have been well over two hundred, most of which I remembered from my early years.

Zouky my Cretan Hound

This is one of my favourite pictures of Zouky at her best, taken  in 2009 behind our house in Vrahassi in the mountains of Crete.
