For the past couple of weeks the city park has hosted the garden of light every evening, a set of light sculptures. Sounds a bit artsy, but it was truly marvellous. We went down on the last day, had dinner out, and then wandered around the park. It really was a magical hour or so - Marisca absolutely loved running around, with her light 'flower', and the place was full of happy cheerful people. I managed to get a few photos I like, and then some others that aren't great photos but have my girl in them which makes them great photos!
(And as a late edit I should say that it's a lovely owl tunic top affair that Elspeth made for Marisca)

We went over towards Skipton for a walk in the morning, a lovely stroll up on a bit of local moor. We were both carrying a small child but for once mine was less wriggly than Elspeth's.
We then went to Haworth on the way home, to visit the Haworth Steam Brewery for lunch. They've opened up a little bistro since last time we were in Haworth, and we popped in for lunch and to get a case of their very nice Ironclad Stout. It really showed how much Marisca has expanded her eating again. I think she must be having a growth spurt because she put away a plate of fish and chips that Elspeth would have been pleased with. She also discovered a taste sensation of chips dipped in orange juice. She assured us it's a taste sensation, we decided not to verify.
We stopped in at Keelham Farm on the way home for some groceries and to visit the animals. Marisca enjoyed the goats and the chickens, but wasn't at all sure about the pigs.
She's just discovered another use. Apologies that the camera work does not match the cuteness of the situation.

Marisca is starting to get the hang of time. I got home today and she's already naked eating her dinner (this isn't unusual). We go for a bath and I ask her to take her clothes off. She looks at me oddly and says "take my clothes off yesterday". Still some work to do on precision then.
