We've not taken the kids anywhere for a while, due to illnesses and other pesky things, so on Monday we jumped in the Adventure Mobile™ and headed over to the coast.
We spent the day between Flamborough Head, North Landing and Thornwick Bay.
It was a ridiculously foggy day - at some points on the way there, visibility was about 20 feet in front of the car! We made it in one piece though, and proceeded to spend the day the way we always do at the seaside - walking on the beach, throwing stones in the sea, eating too much food and moaning about car park prices. Well, that last bit might have been just me...
The fog did roll out at one point towards the end of the day and we got a good 20 minutes of blue skies before it came rolling back in again. Along with the start of the rain!
I also never knew there was a Castle at Flamborough. I must have driven past it a hundred times. It is a pretty small stack of stones in a field though - with no signs or info to show for it. Regardless, I went with all intentions of taking a few snaps - only to find it covered in scaffolding.
Anyway, we had a top day out and, as usual, I took far too many photos.
Here's the snaps.
Gear used - Fujifilm X70
We went to the seaside! In typical British fashion, we sat on the beach with our coats pulled tight and our hoods pulled up. We ate fish n chips, played slots in the arcade and lost more money in the never-ever-win teddy grabber machine. We had fun! After a couple of hours in Scarborough's South Bay we drove down to Flamborough to have a little walk along the head. The wind had picked up a bit by this point, so we bundled ourselves into the Headland Cafe for tea and cake. We also got a chance to watch the Coastguard doing a bit of helicopter training in the strong winds which was very cool to see. Seriously impressive flying! A leisurely drive home with a few little scenic stop-offs finished our day - one of which was to the lovely 14th Century church in Harpham. Here's some snaps.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
