因为Yorkshire slang 的发音比较baku 和重音
小华说: Can I have a dozen of duck egg please?
后来卖主为了要确定是要一打 再次重复: A dozen of 'dog egg' right?

We decided to go for a walk in every weekend unless the weather turns us down. Last Sunday, we went to Knaresborough, about 40 minutes drive from Leeds. Knaresborough is a lovely small town located at North Yorkshire. The town is simple, classic and attractive! Honestly, I love this town more than the other towns that I went before in UK.
Although it's small, tourism industry is very promising in Knaresborough, it attracts visitors from all over the world. Among varies attractions in Knaresborough, Knaresborough railway bridge is my favourite.
Sometimes I really regret why I didn't make a move earlier, to travel and explore as many places as possible in every single corner of UK. UK is so fantastic! It's a country that is enriched by varies cultures, ethnics and beautiful natural landscapes. I will definately miss UK...
Knaresborough Castle was built in c1100 on a cliff above River Nidd. The castle is almost 90% ruined.
When I walk pass the gate, suddenly I heard someone saying 'What's the matter? What's the matter?'. I turned to look around, but I couln't find anyone near by except hubby. Finally I found this is the crow that said 'What's the matter?'. It's amazing! I never know crow can speak like human!

I never heard of this place until I saw Bernice's photos in FB. On the Friday before going to Malham, I met Colin and asked for his expertise and experience about which is the best site for hiking in Yorkshire and he suggested Malham too!
Malham is a small town located at North Yorkshire, about one and a half hour drive from Leeds. There are a few landmarks that worth visiting: Malham Cove (the limestone cliff), Malham Tarn (UK highest sea-level lake) and Gordale Scar (waterfall).
There is a big parking space for visitors to park their vehicles and payment is required. We reached Malham around 10:30am and surprisingly the car park was fulled! Late comers will have to park their cars along the road side. Although it was a bright sunny day, the wind was still blowing strong and cold. I didn't aspect Malham could be so crowded with visitors and walkers.
Very classical old tavern.
