  • Day101


    September 26, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌫 12 °C

    The fog was so thick this morning that we couldn't even see put the window! Visibility was nearly zero, so we decided to drive inland a little to Goathland- the village otherwise known as 'Aidensfield' the village in Heartbeat. Such a cute little village in the middle of the moors. Then a drive back to the coast through Scarborough - so much more commercial than Whitby. Whitby is smaller and a much nicer seaside town.Read more

    Down to the beach!

    September 26, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Finally late this afternoon the fog cleared just long enough for us to see the beach! And what a surprise! All these coloured little beach huts lined up. It's a way down the cliff to the water- we walked but it can also be accessed via a lift. By the time we walked along the beach a little to the peer, the fog had set in again with the wind! Cold!!Read more

    Whitby England

    September 25, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    We've arrived in the U.K. 🇬🇧 After a very early start this morning we caught a flight to London, picked up our car and headed north for a 4.5 hour drive to Whitby on the coast in the Yorkshire Downs & Moors. The weather is a little bleak today but great scenery.

    Sommer (:-)), alte Steine und das Meer

    September 4 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Nach einer ruhigen Nacht weckt uns der Regen auf dem Dach. Es sieht nicht toll aus. Aber nachdem wir unser Frühstück fertig haben kommt die Sonne raus.
    Wir starten unser Unternehmen alte Steine.
    Als erstes stoppen wir am Castle Pickering.
    Es wurde von den Königen im Mittelalter hauptsächlich zur Jagd genutzt.
    Die Stadt selber ist auch etwas größer. Mit einer Shoppingmeile.
    Wir zogen weiter und durchfuhren das North York Moor. Eigentlich wollten wir hier noch eine Wanderung einschieben. Allerdings war die Heide bereits verblüht. So verzichteten wir darauf.
    Die Fahrt durch den Nationalpark war allerdings sehr schön.
    Unser nächster Stopp war in Whitby. Diese Abbey hatte uns eine Mitarbeiterin des English Heritage sehr ans Herz gelegt .
    Wir waren begeistert. Hier erkennt man noch sehr die Details in den alten Steinen.
    Wir waren wieder beeindruckt.
    Den Nachmittag verbrachten wir in der Stadt. Ließen uns durch die alten Gassen treiben, aßen Fish and Chips und liefen ein wenig am Strand entlang. Das alles in der Sonne.
    Jetzt stehen wir in der verblühten Heide und abwechselnd scheint die Sonne oder es regnet.
    Aber frisch ist es geworden...

    Ein Tag in Scarborough

    September 5 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Die Nacht war recht stürmisch. Unser Auto hat ordentlich gewackelt. Aber ansonsten ein schöner ruhiger Platz zum schlafen.
    Heute früh haben wir die Heizung angemacht, 8 Grad, das war doch ein wenig kalt.
    Heute wollen wir nach Scarborough um die dazugehörige Burg zu begutachten.
    Wir parken am Sea-Life und laufen die Strecke am Strand hinein in den Ort. Das Wetter ist schön, die See noch immer aufgewühlt.
    Der Ort ist typisch englisches Seebad. Mit Amüsiermeile, Spielhallen...
    Man merkt das die Schule wieder angefangen hat. Es sind hauptsächlich ältere oder ganz junge Unterwegs.
    Wir essen am Hafen beim Italiener Pizza. Sitzen wunderbar in der Sonne.
    Danach geht es hoch aufs Castle.
    Hier bekommen wir das erste mal einen Audioguide in Deutsch und schon macht alles mehr Spaß. Die Burg hat viel erlebt, einschließlich der beiden Weltkriege und auch die Römer waren schon an dieser Stelle vertreten.
    Nach der Besichtigung bummeln wir wieder zurück zum Womo. Es ist kurz vor 6. da wir das Ticket für 9!! £ zum Parken kaufen mussten bleiben wir gleich heute Nacht.

    P.S. Wir sind heute fast 15 km gelaufen 😃😃

    Heute gibt es keine alten Steine

    September 6 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Wir schlafen länger. Ehe wir so los kommen ist es schon gegen 11:00 Uhr.
    Der erste Weg führt zum einkaufen. Alles für Deutschland rein in den Wagen. Am liebsten würden wir noch Bier einladen, belassen es aber bei Tee und Marmelade.
    Unser Ziel heute war Flamborough Head.
    Zur Brutzeit sind die Kreidefelsen voll von Vögeln.
    Wir machen einen strammen Spaziergang, essen am Leuchtturm und lassen uns den Wind um die Nase wehen. Die Sonne meint es auch gut.
    Bis letzten Sommer dürfte man hier noch übernachten. Jetzt leider nicht mehr.
    Da hier überall „No Overnight“ ist, entschließen wir uns auf den Platz in Scaroborough von gestern Abend.

    A trip to Whitby and reupholstering

    June 10, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    One of the reasons we decided to hole up at a campsite was to give Vicky time (and electricity) to get the sewing machine out and attempt to reupholster the bench cushion, whose cream leatherette surface had begun to flake, leaving trails of what looked like porridge oats strewn over the floor and stuck to our clothing! Will had worked out how much new material we'd need and we found the right stuff in Dunelm. The cushion was a tricky U shape so Vicky had taken the time consuming but easier option of deconstructing the original, effectively giving her 6 templates to draw around on the new fabric.

    Needing new thread, Will searched online and found a craft store in nearby Whitby, so to the coast we went! Being a Saturday, we set off straight after breakfast and managed to find a place to park. The car park had recently put up 'no overnight parking' signs but we were ok for a few hours. Will knew Whitby a little from when he used to live in Goole but it had changed considerably since he last visited, with new buildings making it feel more crowded, although the iconic ruined abbey still towered over the town. The river mouth was busy so we had a mooch along the highstreet, taking the opportunity to peruse the charity shops you don't see so much on the European mainland. There were a few bakers, a greengrocer and butchers but we felt this area was lacking in individuality and character. Turning off the mainstreet and wending our way up a steep hill, we found Whitby Crafts and a hint of that unique personality that lodges a town in your memory. A small shop, packed floor to ceiling with fabric and tools of the trade, this haberdashery was run by someone who knew a lot more about sewing than either of us! She was able to give advice and we came away with what we wanted, as well as things we hadn't realised we'd need, such as specialist leather needles.

    By this time it was beginning to get very busy and the density of people intensified as we made our way back towards the waterfront. We'd thought we might have fish and chips but neither of us felt hungry enough so we picked up a pasty and a slice of quiche from a butchers and ate them looking out over the river mouth, where tour boats took on passengers, ready to pass between the two lighthouses, standing sentry-like, on tall stone walls, at the point where river became sea.

    Neither of us like crowds and by now it was very crowded, so it was time to make our exit. We'd parked by the railway line and as we approached, a steam engine was backing into the station, grey smoke billowing from its shining black chimney. We saw it, or another just like it, powering through the green valley as we took the long way back to the campsite, soaking up the dappled summer shade of mature oaks reaching accross the road and the open rolling moorland.
