Golden Acre pond
Ducks on ice!
We came out of the store to this--the snow came on so fast!

The Victoria pub, right by Town Hall. It's really gorgeous, and they have a nice selection of real ales :)

The grounds at Harewood House
I thought their prices were pretty steep, but then again, this is the 1st time I've ever seen live trees for sale in England. Richard said they sell them at garden centres.

View from the balcony
I didn't want to take a frontal picture of that statue...it was very graphic!
Down by the Courtyard they had these funny swing boats
The carousel was piping out Christmas music--very festive!
The market continues down into the Courtyard
For some strange reason, they have penguins in the back garden...So cute! Especially that one coming out of the little house.

Those little white specks in the field are sheep
On Sunday morning we went up to Almscliff Crag, just outside of Pool (between Leeds and Otley). It wasn't too bad of a climb, but it was really exposed--so windy and cold! I overcompensated a bit and took loads of pictures of the view to really make it worthwhile :) It really does have a gorgeous view, though.
