Ilkley

We had a day out at Ilkley and enjoyed a walk along the river Wharf.

The cafe at the lawn tennis club came up trumps, again, for lunch with some good healthy food at a good healthy price - highly recommended.

Apparently there is a major tennis tournament on very soon here.

The top prize is £150,000 for men and £100,000 for women.
Lots of top world class players are due to compete.

I had a sneaky look on t'internet and was surprised at the ticket prices - a lot less expensive than I had imagined.

Not a tennis fan myself, but looking at the beautiful greens, the marquee and the seating arrangements - it looks like it's going to be a great day for tennis lovers.

The weather was very hot with the usual birds about.
A Common Sandpiper was on the river - Sue and Annette saw it - top birder John - did not!!
