Out in the van – Scarbrough

Popped over to the east coast…

Where: Scarborough, East Yorkshire, England

When: 29th January 2022

Why: Went to watch rugby And decided to pop into town after for fish and chips.

With: Me, my youngest, Tom, and his friend Henry.

It is a 2 hour drive in the van to Scarborough so we set off pretty early in an absolute Gale and got there just in time to watch the rugby match. The result was somewhat disappointing as we lost but it was good to be outdoors Even though it was blowing so hard and at times was difficult just to stand up straight.

We decided to head down to the beach front in Scarborough to get some fish-and-chips which were absolutely fantastic then we spent a little time in the arcades and having a walk about and we finished off with an ice cream and some lovely views of the Bay in the dark. We didn’t really have a great deal of time to spend because we had to make a 2 hour journey back home but it was a great way to spend the day.

I probably spent as much time sat in the Van driving as I did watching the rugby and eating delicious fish-and-chips but I don’t mind that it’s all part of the fun. We didn’t take the dog though because whilst he can make a 2 hour journey there have been a lot of problems with animals getting sick having gone in the water on the East Coast so we decided to keep him safe.

Mostly it was just a rather nice trip out in the sunshine and the blowing winds and a great excuse To have my favourite lemon ice cream.

  1. I’ve had fish and chips in England. Apparently I got a lucky batch with caviar and had to give it away for an unlucky batch! 🤪

    I miss a good fish and chip. But y’all got the hot dog all wrong.

    I miss England but will likely never travel outside my homeland ever again. 😑
    My passport is current tho.
