Filey Brigg

We spent a wonderful day on Tuesday hiking around Filey in the sunshine. It was a little cool with an easterly breeze but down on the beach it was quite pleasant. Lindsay, Casey, Chris & I walked from the house down to the coble landing and then struck out across the beach to the very tip of Filey Brigg which is at the end of Carr Naze, a long spit of land jutting out into Filey bay. Centuries ago the Romans had an encampment on top of Carr Naze which afforded them unobstructed views of the North Sea in the event of attack. The tide was as far out as I can ever remember seeing before. We grabbed a few photos of us with the waves bashing in against the rocky shore.

After Filey Brigg we scrambled up the edge of the spit to the very top and followed the cliff tops back into Filey where we found a wonderful fish & chip lunch at CJs take away. We happily munched away on our lunches, much to the dismay of the herring gulls who were very eager to sample our lunches. We strolled around Filey shops for a bit and then struck off for home and a little rest. The stairs and pathways of Filey never used to wear me out but I was feeling a little stiff by the end of the day.

We spent an enjoyable afternoon with my mother planning out our activities for the next few days. Tomorrow we are all off to Whitby!
