Thursday 22nd April.
It’s been a beautiful, sunny pleasant day today, we have been able to sit outside in the warmth until 7.15pm, the sun has now dipped behind the hills behind us. Time possibly for a drink.
After lunch it was decided to make the steep descent from the campsite down to the beach at Robin Hoods Bay, which is a picturesque old fishing village on the coast of the North York Moors. You can wander around it’s narrow twisting cobbled streets and alleyways, less than 2 metres wide and you can easily imagine how life was living there many centuries ago.
We enjoyed a long pleasant stroll along the length of the beach where Layla enjoyed her pastime of chasing pebbles and searching for them in the sea. There was an ice cream van on the beach and we enjoyed the innocent pleasure of doing some thing normal again and buying an ice cream to eat as we walked along, came with real Cadbury flakes too!!
We rounded off the walk along the beach with our first alcoholic drink at a pub since one in a pub garden at The Wisemans Bridge Pub near Saundersfoot in September 2020.
The walk back up to the campsite was a hard pull and the legs felt it all the way, today we only walked 3.5 miles.
