Hello. Here is part two of the first day's walking. After a quick toilet break at Flamborough Head, too cold to hang around, I set off along the coastal track towards North Landing. Here the sea birds are clinging onto the cliffs as the wind was howling around them, and the waves were lashing the rocks below.
More sea views and the path ahead.
I walked through the caravans, and had to ask someone the way out, and eventually found the main entrance onto the road. At the end of the driveway are two yucky turquoise blue ponds with fountains spewing out what looked like some kind of obnoxious poison. That did not seem natural at all, in fact it reminded me a very heavily polluted sickly looking cesspit.
I'm on my way, heading towards Flamborough Village.
I fancied chips but sadly the chip shop in Sewerby was closed, so I had to drive a few minutes towards Bridlington where I found another one. Mushy peas and chips for dinner tonight. Then I went in search of a camp site, there was one marked on the map not too far away next to a railway line. I pulled in The Poplars, and pressed the buzzer at reception for service. I think the owners were a bit taken aback when I asked for a tent pitch but would be sleeping in my campercar. They couldn't decided what to charge me when I asked. We then had a smashing chat about money saving and simple living. They are keen frugalers so we spent twenty minutes swapping money saving stories. Eventually we haggled over the price, they did me a very good deal. I'm sorry to say that I forgot to ask their names and I can't find them on their web site. If you want to check it out it's here. They also do B & B at a very good price. It's a small camping and caravan site, good washing facilities, nice and quiet.
I did a bit of sewing after I ate my luke warm chips, but gave up when the light faded. Early to bed for me. Rosy cheeks from the wind.
A few empty pitches, it's early in the season, best get booked if you want to come high season. The location is ideal for Bridlington and the east coast up to Scarborough.
I'll be back tomorrow with the next part of my two day walking break. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
