    We travelled up the A1 on Saturday heading for the north east to visit Karen's family. A quick stop en route at Newark for us to buy essentials for Hazel at a motorhome dealership. The journey took longer than expected, although the roads were not too busy. Very windy as we approached Redcar with spots of rain. It was good to see Karen's parents again after so long and to catch up with their news. We stayed in Redcar for 4 nights, sleeping each night on the Stray overlooking the sea. There were a few other vans also staying over, but we reckon the hostile weather kept the numbers down!!!! Very cold, wet and windy for 3 of the 4 days, but we managed to get out and about. We spent a lovely day in Whitby (one of our favourite places in England) and enjoyed a belated birthday celebration meal at the Jolly Sailors pub on the moor road. Great food as ever there. We left Redcar in torrential rain and howling wind to make our way further north. Thank goodness we didn't get rid of all our winter clothes when we set off travelling. They are very much in use at the moment!!!!! The weather can only get better!!!Read more
