Castle Howard - Sunshine and showers

I woke to rain!! So I put my plans on hold and went to Castle Howard. That said it was a much better day today. It cleared up about 11 and with the exception of a heavy shower was dry.

I didn't go into the house just pootled around the gardens.





I should mention that the soup was Sweet Potato and chilli ginger.














As I reached the great lake the rain returned so I headed into the boat house cafe for a cuppa. When I exited the skies were blue!




















No cake today, I had a toasted tea cake!

Castle Howard looks incredibly impressive Pete. Lovely photos of beautiful gardens and I love all the statues and the barn owl carving.

It doesn't look too busy there either.

Wonderful owl! and sculptures. Glad you found the sun.... and some blue sky - nice to have a picture with some in as I'd forgotten what it looked like.

There's something about Castle Howard that's so over the top - but fascinating.... I must go back one day.

Wonderful statues. And that Castle is indeed fascinating. Beautiful.
