Day 0

So it all starts here!

Today was the day of getting to Scarborough, with Liam coming from Norfolk and me coming from Ramblers General Council in Bangor. It was an interesting weekend in Wales and there was lots of gossip and news that I found out.

Richard’s flap was loose and didn’t shut, causing some regular stopping to resolve. It caused some issues when his car keep issuing him alerts about his loose flap.

I had the delight of Richard driving me across the country to meet up with Liam, which was a lovely journey.  Richard cut up about 40 cars and caused a very angry driver to stick his fingers up at him, so an entertaining little road trip. Above are Richard and Liam at the meet up point with Richard still wearing his Ramblers name badge so that people at the car park could know how important he is.

Greggs stop! It would be great if there were more Greggs on the route, but there are at least outlets of this fine dining chain at Scarborough, Thirsk and Morecambe. The chicken bake was delicious but was unfortunately not hot, but still a lovely way to start the week.

Liam at the meet up point. He might not look this happy in six days time when we’ve hopefully finished the walk.

We’ve had our evening meal in Scarborough, after stopping off at Greggs, and now we’re ready for an early start tomorrow (Monday morning). We’re staying at the Premier Inn in Scarborough, a full hotel but it’s centrally located and near for our JD Wetherspoon breakfast stop in the morning.

I didn’t finish this trip when we did in 2016 due to a blister, but Liam did. This time we’re going from Scarborough to Morecambe, so what could possibly go wrong?

Julian.
