Scarborough Camping and Caravanning Club site
We’re now on a “proper” trip, we’ve driven 180 miles north west to the above campsite to meet up with our motor- homing buddies Alison and Peter who we haven’t seen in real life since Sept 2020. Since we last met their motorhome Fluffles has gone to a new home and they now have a Auto Sleeper Broadway, known as FuFu.
After sitting in the sunshine for some time and catching up on recent news we took the opportunity to go for a walk. We left the site and headed off across a path though a field where we met up with the coastal path at the cliff edge.
As the plan is for us to walk to Scarborough tomorrow we headed left away from the town and walked along the cliff top.
We then came across a faint path that led down a gap in the cliffs and after some difficulty we managed to scramble down it and onto the beach( it was considerably more difficult when we had to scramble back up!) The tide being out left a rocky shoreline covered in seaweed , this made it impossible to get down to the sea but nonetheless we enjoyed a walk along the sand and pebbles and scrambling over rocks.
As usual later in the evening we joined Alison and Peter in their new motorhome and during the course of the evening they announced they were to be grandparents again, Alison’s daughter is expecting their second and Peter’s son and his partner are expecting their first child. I blame the lockdown as our eldest daughter Emma is expecting twins shortly.
