Scarborough Fair

We had to go to Scarborough today as Housemate had something that needed picking up there, and it seemed like a good reason for a day trip.  Although it was raining when we set off from home, the sun started poking through around lunchtime.


The sun's out!

After we'd driven along the seafront, we went for a drive up Oliver's Mount.  I've never been up here before, and I didn't realise the roads were used as a motorcycle racing track.  Fortunately there were no bikes today so we were able to drive up nice and slowly.

We'd already decided to come back a different way, and we ended up driving to a pretty little village called Lund, which is about 6 miles from Beverley.  OK, it wasn't entirely random, as there were a couple of geocaches here :D   Both Small and I got our respective 50th finds, which isn't bad considering we only started hunting for them on the 18th of December.

It must be about 9 years since I was last in Scarborough, and it hasn't changed much!  We enjoyed our day trip, and loved doing a bit of exploring somewhere none of us had been before.

Until next time. x
