Bridlington was suprisingly entertaining. Walk up from the harbout to the oldtown and it changes character from the kiss me quick.. gobble the chips… sort o of place to a much more traditional English town.
Once the tide picked up the boat we left the harbour at about 11.00. Scar is a hard four hours sail…. or a leisurely hour one. I stucj to the shore closely as possible because I wanted to film the birds under Flamborough and Bempton
For once the crab pot markers were very useful as they showed where the water was deep and freeof obstructions
we anchoreed in Nortth Landing for a while – it is a tiny inlet right on the head. Jill went for a swim among the chalk natural chalk sculptures and in the crystal clear water. We also caught a pretty good sized mackeral which was cooked in the cockpit.
We are now in Scarborough on a finger berth at £21 a night. A day exploring on foot before heading for Whitby on Saturday.
Bridlington was a great place for a stopover – £20 for three nights
It was perfect weather for a close encounter with Flamborough Head. We could get right in tight under the cliffs with the Gannets wheeling overhead
At Northlanding they haul the work boats right up on the shore
And so to Scarborough – noisy buy quaint
They hang their bics on the wall and keep their yachts in floating cradles
