Outfit: Distressed Denim and Jewelled Sandals



NL Pewter jewel sandals

Day 8 of the good weather (Saturday) and we headed out for a day in Knaresborough. It was the annual Knaresborough Bed Race so the town was packed. We knew it would be so we parked just outside and enjoyed a walk through the woods to get there.


I’ve never been to the Bed Racing before, but the whole town had turned out for the event. There were around 90 teams taking part and there was a carnival-type parade of all the beds and teams in their fancy dress through the town before the actual race. This year’s theme was Myths and Legends so there were plenty of dragons, some aliens and even the Star Wars characters.



The main race takes place mid-afternoon and the teams race along the riverside, through the town (no mean feat if you know Knaresborough – it’s very hilly), back down and through the river to the finish line. I say through the river - all the beds have to be buoyant as the teams have to wade through the river with the beds. We had a drink at the entrance to Mother Shipton’s Cave and watched all the teams cross the bridge and head down to the river.


We rounded the day off back home with a barbeque.
