Bridlington and Hornsea

As we haven’t actually made it into Bridlington itself yet, that’s stop one today after leaving the campsite.

We find a large carpark at one end of the promenade near North Beach and wander towards the pier.

The sun is shining, the wind is behind us and the beach is almost empty so a lovely start to the day.

We nose around the harbour where the tide is out. There are loads of working fishing boats as we learn Bridlington is the largest seafood port in the UK.

The place seems in good shape too with amazingly clean public loos and fish and chips everywhere. A proper old fashioned English seaside town.

After a look at the town, seafront and the harbour we enjoy fish bites and chips, a cuppa and hot doughnut. Yum.

Annoyingly we have a parking ticket when we get back to the van. It seems the empty car park is for coaches only, even though there is only us and one other motorhome parked, also with a parking ticket. Our £4 charge might be £39 with the fine. I’m going to try and get them to let us off but whether it works….

We land in our new campsite a mile outside Hornsea. After a cuppa, some blogging and kindle time we get the bikes down and cycle into Hornsea. Find a pub on the promenade where we can park our bikes and watch the tide come in. It’s looking quite rough with lots of foam and splashing.

A bit of a cycle around town, another beer and then back to the van for homemade cajun dirty rice and the movie In America. Another good day…well apart from the parking fine.
