My good friend Bridget came over to Yorkshire from Saint Paul, MN this last week. I spent a week showing my home county of Yorkshire to Bridget, so I got to play at being a tourist here. I will post pictures of our week and the towns, villages and people we saw over the coming days here on my Yorkshire photography blog
