THORNWICK BAY PUFFINS
No sooner had I mentioned the big black cloud yesterday, it disappeared and the sun came out and we had lovely blue skies again. We therefore decided to go up the coast to Filey and Scarborough.
I've been once before but only remembered once there. The views were fabulous but the towns are run down just like most throughout the country. It's such a shame to see our heritage disappear under neglect and lack of pride. It makes me depressed to think how proud our land used to be. Anyway, not wanting to be a soapbox person, here's the rest of yesterday.
Whilst in Scarborough we had fish and chips!! Did you get that Hels?? The chips were awful and the fish batter was greasy. I managed to keep the seagulls off but really wouldn't have minded if they had pinched it all. On the way back we drove to Thornwick Bay - it's actually where we are staying - to see the puffins on the cliffs. If you look carefully at the cracks you can just see little black dots which are the puffins. It was amazing to watch them flying, just like penguins! well not really but just like I imagine penguins to look like if they could fly.
Had a day in today which I will leave 'til tomorrow because it will now take at least 30mins to load a picture.
