Yesterday we went on another day trip, this time to the seaside town of Bridlington. Often portrayed (rather unkindly) as the ‘poor relation’ of Scarborough and Whitby, it still has a lot to offer.

A Day Trip

Last Saturday we visited Matlock Bath in Derbyshire. We have been before but as it was 25 years ago we thought another visit was overdue.

Whitby 2017

| 25th August 2017

Yesterday we made our annual pilgrimage to Whitby, one of our favourite seaside resorts. The weather could have been better, but it was good enough to give us a lovely day.
