A Saturday in Scarborough

We decided to have a day trip to Scarborough today as we haven't been to the coast for ages.  It was lovely.  K, Nellie and I decided to go.  Belle was going to the Cinema with her friends and Betty was working early evening so couldn't come with us.

We had a quick look around the charity shops at the top of town first of all.

Then we made our way to the North Bay where we had fish and chips on Marine Drive looking out to sea.  We always do this it is a Two Bones family tradition.  Parking was free which was a bonus.  It was quite busy lots of people walking along the prom and surf was up so there were quite a lot of surfers in the sea.

Yum - don't tell fat club will you - please!

Big climb up the cliff - you can see the castle in the background.

View across North Bay you can just make out the brightly coloured beach huts.

Pretty rows of hotels

View across town

Anne Bronte's grave

Lots of the grave stones were really old and worn. 

What can I say!

Another hill top shot - if you haven't been Scarborough is very hilly.

This is Lavender-lu's gorgeous shop which is situated underneath the market.  The owner makes the most beautiful lavender dolls the one in the photo is enormous.

A pixie in a house which I got from the Air Ambulance stall in the market 25p.  I just love a good pixie product.

A cute cottage salt pot which I am going to use as an incense burner which I paid 50p for.  So pretty.

Well I am going to go now as I am working tomorrow at Hope and Elvis and I have a few things to sort out tonight.  I am trying to post more often but I am finding it tricky to fit everything in.  It's not that I don't want to or don't have anything to post about I just can't fit it all in the the moment.  Suppose it's better than being bored.  Speak soon.

Oooh those fish and chips look yummy. I'm originally a Yorkshire lass and the one thing I miss about the north (we now live in Hampshire) are the chip shops - in the 24 yrs of living down south I am yet to find a decent chippy.

I remember going on a day trip to Scarborough with my Nanna when I was a little girl, happy days....

Whenever I hear the name Scarborough the song "Are You Going to Scarborough Fair" by Simon and Garfunkle goes through my mind. Looks like you had a great day!

Just to say I DID go to Bestoke Country and I always do it is a lovely shop and well worth a visit.
