Day trip to the overly commercialised and noisy Scarborough

Sunday morning started off a lot slower than Saturday. For one thing, I slept longer, woke up later but didn't miss my morning ritual of tea in the hostel garden overlooking the fresh green. I just cannot get enough of this view! The agenda for the day was to bus it to Scarborough and revisit Robin Hood Bay, and then spend time around town in Whitby. My final full day here before it even began. :-(
The bus to Scarborough left around 930am and the journey took about 1 hour. The drive was very nice, as good as the one to Whitby from York. Yorkshire has these lovely spacy green fields, all well manicured and the classic English stones-fences.
I walked past the Rotunda museum but wasn't in the mood to visit. I made my way up the town, to the "old centre", where I wanted to see Anne Bronte's grave (which so far seemed the only draw to this place). The funny thing is that the graveyard in which she is buried is actually transformed into a carpark (well half of it, LOL) so was quite amusing to see cars and graves next to each other in the same compound.
I really didn't want to stay in this town for a long time and started making my way back. I grabbed a lovely tomato onion cheese sandwich and my favourite Innocent mango drink and headed back to the bus stop to go to Robin Hood Bay. Overall, big big waste of time, sorry!
