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!

  1. I’ve always wanted to go to Scarborough to see Anne Bronte’s grave – but fish and chips on the beach is now also a definite draw card 🙂

    1. I should have done my research because I didn’t know that was there! But I should say that the actual town centre looked pretty rough … but the beach was lovely. As was the fish and chips of course!
