Keeping an eye on the weather.

We made the most of the weather at the weekend. Our initial plans were to head towards Hull on Saturday - but as we headed over the moors it was clear we were heading in the wrong direction - it would seem the best weather was literally at home, so we turned round and stayed local. Sunday however was truly glorious. The forecast was excellent for the North East Coast, so we headed out and followed the coastline. We decided to venture further than Bridlington which we find too commercial.
Jo, had written about a little adventure here
so we decided to head for Fraisthorpe.





As soon as we pulled in I realised we had been before....so after a quick toilet visit we headed further North and as we were tootling along we passed a sign "To the sea front" so we followed the road and came to a lovely little gem - will definitely be a picnic stop on future expeditions. Willsthorpe.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Back on the motorbike we headed towards Hornsea and had an ice-cream. The views were wonderful.  
 
 
 
 

WE had wanted to go further but time was pressing on so we headed home via Scarborough. A wonderful afternoon - we will go there again and head towards Withernsea. For more ABC fun follow the link in my sidebar.

  1. Thanks for this post. You brought back some childhood memories. We used to holiday at Willsthorpe when I was a child. I love Hornsea too. I'm a bit of a collector of the muramic pottery. I love the museum there with the factory collection. There's lots of great charity shops too and the shopping outlet which is nice for a wander round. I haven't been for a while now, but I must get back there sometime when we head up north again.

    1. Yes Jessica - great picnic spot. All of the beaches were very quiet - yet Bridlington beach would have been packed I'm sure.

  5. Love your pics of the beach! Reminds me on the Dutch beach (am originally from there), since the Californian coast looks very different:)

  6. Goodness what a lovely day out. I so miss the ocean and your post make it seem I can almost smell the salt air and hear the birds.

    cheers, parsnip

  9. What lovely blue sea and skies. Another reason why Autumn is my favourite season. It's been really mild here, up to 21'C.

  12. Yep! I can see Flamborough Head way off in the distance. I know all those little towns and villages -- and yes Bridlington is too commercialized John must be so 'chuffed' to have a wife who loves the motor bike too.

  13. You picked a beautiful day for it. I've just googled Wilsthorpe and dogs are allowed all year on the beach so I've jotted it down, we'll definitely head there sometime. Thanks for the mention.

  14. Denise you really do find the most beautiful unspoilt stretches of sand with hardly a soul on them.
