Flamborough Head

 

Flamborough Lighthouse

Sunday was a glorious day in North Yorkshire with clear blue skies and temps that soared to a high of 24°C. Not too shabby for the third week of September. Chris & I walked out to Filey Brigg around lunch time just to stretch our legs a bit. We walked out on the beach as the tide was way out. There is an old rickety old staircase that winds it's way from sea level to the top of the cliff that is Filey Brigg. We walk out to the end of the Brigg every time we visit and then climb the stairs to the top of the Brigg for our walk back. Country Park was teeming with people. There must have been a good two hundred vehicles in the car park on top of the cliffs and the beaches were very busy as well.

Once we got back from our walk to Filey Brigg, we gathered up my mother and we all walked to The Station pub in Filey for their Carvery luncheon. We had a choice of pork roast, chicken breast or turkey breast along with roast potatoes, stuffing and vegetables for lunch along with a beverage for less than £20 total which we thought was pretty good value.

After lunch we went for a drive out to Flamborough Head just south of Filey to have a wander around the cliffs and to photograph the lighthouse. Again, lots of people, but it was a perfect afternoon for a walk and a latte at the Headlands Cafe. We have another busy day on our agenda tomorrow with a visit to York planned while the sun is still shining.
