Anyway - after a pleasant couple of hours getting sunburnt - unintentionally, there was a very strong breeze which masked the power of the sun - we headed for Filey and Fish & Chips for tea! Then a stroll along the front and a few minutes sitting watching the tide come in before we headed for home about 6 pm.
The beach at Filey
Even when we arrived at Filey, things "fell into place". Again, we found a car parking space immediately but discovered the ticket machine wasn't working. I left a note on the windscreen but as we were leaving, an engineer was trying to fix the machines. I asked him if we should hang on til he'd fixed it but he told us not to bother - the note on the windscreen would be OK! So - 3 hours free parking as a nice little bonus!
A grand day all round!!
