We have just got back from our first trip of 2023, cheated a little by taking the car and staying in a Premier hotel but looking at the figures using the van wouldn't have been much cheaper especially taking bus/taxi fares into account.
We were once again based in Bridlington and another reason for having the car meant that we could have a look round the surrounding area more easily.
We finally reached the coast on Thursday after popping into the motorhome dealership to book a service and some other bits and bobs and the bike shop to book a service after which we were hoping that we would have some money left!
The bay windows on the older houses always remind me of the ones in Cromer.
The post box had a trio of sailors on it, I'm not sure who is responsible but I had heard that there are one or two knitting groups around.
We had a good trawl around the charity shops, picked up one or two bargains which I will share in the next crafty post.
We stopped off at the pavilion to admire the wrought iron work, grab a bite to eat and watch the sun set.
The street lights were on by the time we left making the sky much more dramatic.
The next day, after stuffing ourselves with breakfast, we headed out to Hornsea which is famous for the pottery produced there until 2000 although it is probably best remembered from the 50s-70s. The museum was closed but we will return to visit sometime.
I found a lovely little craft shop called Dizzy Birds ( the owner was lovely) and I suspect that I will be going back again at some point.
Saturday saw us traveling North to Filey, past the sheepy roundabout ( I'd forgotten about this) and managing to park on the sea front.
