My last post on our trip to Whitby will be much shorted than I anticipated. I had planned a visit to the Dinosaur and Fossil Museum in Robin Hood’s Bay, then a walk across the clifftops to Boggle Hole and back again along the beach. However, waking up for our last, fun filled day, I found myself pretty poorly, so the walk was out of the question.
After a busy first day and despite our late night, we managed to wake in plenty of time for a lovely cooked breakfast to set us up for the day. As promised the night before, we strolled back down to the harbour to find the pirate ship to start the day with another boat ride (this was to become a theme).
Back in August, I decided I wanted to take Rowan away for a couple of days before he started school. Rick doesn’t get as many holidays as me, so leaving him at home with Rocky and Pebble, we headed to North Yorkshire and the lovely seaside town of Whitby. Traffic on the A64 meant the drive took a lot longer than we thought, so we arrived much later than we had planned. We were determined to make the most of our time there though. After dropping our things at the bed and breakfast, we set out to explore the town.
I seem to have been so busy recently I’m just finding the time now to sit down and write about out walk in Betws-y-Coed during our recent long weekend in North Wales. The forecast for the day was sunshine and rain showers, so we decided to go for a stroll alongside the river, Afon Llugwy, at Betws-y-Coed. Having visited before, we know that parts of the walk were in woodland, so if it rained, we would be afforded a bit a shelter.
A couple of weeks ago, I decided that the walk I had planned for our adventure day wasn’t suitable for me looking after Rowan and the furry woofers on my own (too much on a country road with no pavement). Turned out we were both pretty tired too, so we stayed local and visited Dunham Park.
So this post is a bit different to previous ones, but we had too good a day to leave it out. My previous posts have been about some of our adventures in the countryside but the common theme is getting outside. Last weekend we spent the afternoon getting outside, exploring Phillips Park and its new inhabitants – the dinosaurs!!!
One slightly cloudy, rain threatened day on our Cornwall holiday, we decided to take a stroll along part of the South West Coast Path. Originally created by coastguards on patrol, the 630 mile path runs from Minehead in Somerset, round the Cornish peninsula to Poole Harbour in Dorset. Our walk was to be much shorter, from Mawgan Porth to Bedruthan Steps and back again.
