Scarborough revisited

Moved on up the coast and into Scarborough.  Take several hours to stroll along the esplanade.  The donkeys are just being set up on the beach for the crowds expected.  Many cocker spaniels are being walked and swum along the beach.  It was here that I had come in 1999 with my Canberra Morris side to participate in a 4 day Scarborough Fayre dancing extravaganza.  Many fond memories but this time the weather was superb.  In 1999 we danced between storms, cancelled the street parade, danced in the huge ballroom instead of outside but had so much fun with approximately 40 sides from around the world.

Whitby was our next port of call.  James Cook had worked here and the Endeavour was built here, which he set off in to discover Australia in.  There is a brief foray into the moors.  Onwards in windy conditions and we find another farm camp which has it's own Mill Pond and a small walled area as well as a larger field.  There are a total of 8 familes here and the owner is hard to raise as there is an England match being played in the World Cup series against Argentina which England wins on a penalty shootout with some dubious refereeing.  Once we set up we relax and find that we are overlooking Lindesfarne-  Holy Island. A peaceful and lovely camping place.
