Scarborough and Bridlington have lovely sandy beaches and whilst they are commercialised there are also spots where you can step away from all that. We had a day trip to Bridlington last Thursday.
Our day took the usual route when we go there - use the park and ride at south beach which in reality is so close to everything you'd only need to use the ride bit if you had either mobility issues or were very lazy
It leads down to this beach but we usually walk towards the commercialised end and get some chips and icecream at the harbour
Yikes that chin shot isn't very flattering!
Then it's a walk through town and back to the car to collect the beach gear. The bag has all kinds of stuff in it and we've used the same one for several years since the youngest was tiny. These days he doesn't get much more than his rugby ball out of it. It's a permanent fixture to his hand most of the time lately. A kite and bucket and spade made a brief appearance last week but they soon went away in favour of skimming stones in the sea. I guess he's getting older. Personally I was selfish and let the husband do all the kid stuff and sit in a chair with my knitting.
See the pipe coming out of the cliff? That wasn't there last time we were here so must have been exposed when more land disappeared to the sea.
