We could hear the call of the sea so we set the alarm for stupid o clock Sunday morning, threw our wellies in the boot and headed on up to North Yorkshire, to a favourite little place of ours....... you guessed it..... Whitby!
An added bonus to our trip......a car boot YAY!
unfortunately it was pants : (
however I did find this amongst the tat
The weather forecast promised us sunshine and sunshine it did!
We walked along the beach from Whitby to Sandsend, stopping at The Hart for lunch and some much needed liquid refreshment before walking back to Whitby, the beach was quite busy with dog walkers but Bruce behaved himself impeccably.
We planned to walk up the steps to the Abbey but after the massive lunch and then tea and cake here we just couldn't manage it this time, so instead The Hotchpotch boys had a game of crazy golf while I sat in the car overlooking the sea.
Obviously I didn't leave the house without my crochet hook and a ball of wool so I managed to finish the final granny square I needed for my camper blanket.
Of course I couldn't leave without a visit to Dotty about Vintage
I was amazed that Trudie remembered me from my last visit
A few of the spare pennies were spent in the slots before we shared fish and chips on the harbour front, then home in time for Downton.
As Pop Larkin would say...........PERFICK .
OOOH nearly forgot
these are the bits of china I picked up from the table top sale last Saturday
and these are what I found a the jumble sale
I already have one of these tupperware bowls but this looks like new and the flour/sugar shaker is something I have actually needed for ages as my old one has a loose top which isn't ideal!
Here's to another great weekend ahead
Happy Friday All
