Just a brief blog post now that I’m back from my weekend away in Yorkshire.
All good road trips start with a Greggs, especially when it’s a free one from O2. Technically, this Friday morning trip started with a rail journey from Norwich to Ipswich which was fortunately on time and problem free. I had a slight delay at Greggs at Ipswich railway station when I had to wait for the sausage rolls to come out of the ovens, but I was then ready for Hayley to escort me to where Simon would be taking over the burden of driving us.
Signage for the Lost Village festival at Norton Disney, this sounds like an interesting experience to visit in future years.
Simon suggested a stop off at Greggs and as a passenger, it wasn’t for me to argue with that. Chicken bake acquired, we were ready to continue with the journey.
I always take photos when going over the Humber Bridge, I’m never quite sure why.
There’s the River Humber and that means just one thing, we were near the best pub in the country.
And here it is, the Hop & Vine in Hull that I might have mentioned before. We had thirty minutes to spare and so I fully intended to make the most of that, many thanks for Simon for parking up outside. The Jem’s Stout was new to me, it was a proper liquorice hit. I recently lost my planned trip to Hull to the rail strikes, I hope to get back there again soon. All on schedule and making good time, we positively glided into Scarborough with Simon’s skilful driving.
I had chance of an evening walk and so I went to quickly check on Liam’s lifeboat station whilst Simon and Jane were battling their way to their decadent hotel.
More later on with regards to the B&B that I stayed in, as well as a very exciting bar that a couple of us visited in sunny Scarborough. It was to be an early morning the next day, ready to take part in the LDWA’s Smuggler’s Trod.
