Holiday in Yorkshire - September 2017 - Days 5 - 6

On Tuesday, Mum and Dad went into York, while Rob and I headed out to Robin Hood's Bay. It was a warm and sunny day, so too hot to leave Brock in the car.

We had checked the tide times in advance, so were able to time our walk to take in the whole of the bay and around the picturesque fishing village. Dogs are allowed on the beach at all times of year, and it is popular with fossil hunters as the cliff is continually crumbling - we saw small rock falls occurring as we were walking.

Lunch was taken outside, overlooking the promenade and sea, at the Swell Cafe Bar. We had the ploughman's lunch and mineral water or green tea. It was busy and the service was a little slow, but very friendly and the food was good.

The walk back up to the top car park is extremely steep!

Later that evening we treated my parents to dinner at The Nags Head in Askham Bryan. The food is always superb in there. We all ate far too much, but enjoyed it thoroughly. I had the three egg omelet with cheese and onion, and chunky chips, followed by banana split. Yum!

The next day we went to York and Mum and Dad had a rest day after all of their walking in York the previous day.

We gave Brock a 50 minute walk along by the river, before he had a 'little rest' in the car (we parked in the Piccadilly multi-story car park: a 'bargain' at £7.50 for three hours). We looked around The Shambles, bought some food for dinner in M&S and had lunch in Molly's Tearoom in The Antique Centre. I had a very good egg mayonnaise sandwich on gluten free bread and Rob had a veggie breakfast of eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, toast and baked beans. Recommended! The antiques were interesting to browse, too: numerous cabinets of well grouped and laid out treasures. I was very tempted by some red and blue faceted, glass jewellery, but managed to resist.
