Scarborough…Another place in Yorkshire that’s FAR prettier than it’s name.

We parked up on our way back to the midlands long enough to take a rushed photo-spree around the harbour and to swallow a half loafs worth of fresh crab sandwiches while sat on the beach.

Is there anything better than a gob-full of fresh crab while there’sΒ sand between your toes?

Answers on a postcard please….

    Unfortunately I don’t have a postcard, but better than crab sandwiches on the beach is sitting in a harbour restaurant with a freshly caught sea food platter.

      Ben,
      You are obviously a sophisticated kinda dude….
      Sadly the restaurants would not let us in as I was wearing a skin tone backless swimming thong and my wife was ‘au naturel’.
      Maybe next time we’ll take some trousers.

      Sorry Ron, I’ve no idea what the place was called…But it was open-fronted with about a dozen tiny plastic chairs right by the railway station….AND it had a big placard of a smiling crab.
      Your mission, (should you choose to accept it),………

    Love those first stairs, texture, light and all….I also had a good chuckle at your mischievous tall story re crab on the sand πŸ™‚

    If I had one, I’d send a postcard from the wharf at Santa Cruz next to the beach boardwalk. Sand between the toes, crab Louie in a cardboard basket, tiny plastic fork, and sea lions barking away beneath me between the pier supports. Throw in a brown pelican on the railing just in case. πŸ™‚

      Mallyan Spout’s in Goathland, (well about half a mile away)…been there, done that!

      Seriously though, it is lovely up there!
      I can well understand why nostalgia might creep in.
