Our final day of our Yorkshire road trip brought us to Scarborough. For those of you whose geography is as good as mine (ie. not very), it’s up a bit and to the right of Leeds, so north eastish.
I didn’t want to make the same mistake as York and attempt to check in three hours early, so we drove straight to Scarborough beach and amazingly found it without too many U-turns.
We had been so lucky with the weather … hadn’t rained at all, in fact it had stayed relatively mild and more often than not, sunny. Our plan for Scarborough so basically not to do too much as I still had She-bola (aka Woman Flu), and also we couldn’t see many places open. It’s not one of those arcade-y type beaches (thankfully), but we did notice Crazy Golf at one end of the promenade, next to a Sainsburys I think!
Desperate for a wee-stop, we went to the main cafe, sorted ourselves out, then bought fish and chips to share on the beach. I’m not really that organised so didn’t have a blanket or chairs so we found a set of damp concrete steps to sit on – winning! Still, we didn’t mind – the sun was shining and there is nothing better than eating fish and chips on a beach. Nothing. Well, champagne to go with it would have helped of course.
The funny thing is, Dexter is such a PS3 fan that I had worried he’d be bored on an empty beach with nothing to do – you know what kids that age are like. But actually, I was pleasantly surprised (as you’ll see in the video).
He’s such good company. I know I’m biased, but he’s such a funny kid, great to be around (most of the time) and a wonderful sidekick!
I hope you enjoy the video – we had lots of fun filming!
