Sharing some sunshine

Hello Everyone and welcome to my blog-hope you enjoy your visit.

Happy Easter and I hope the sun is shining where you are as it is here at the moment.

It definitely shone yesterday so we set off on a 'summer' bus that goes in and out of the caravan parks along the coast to the north of us.

We decided to get off the bus at Primrose Valley and walk down the beautiful ravine there to the beach and along the beach to Filey. It was quite busy in Filey which was good to see, so we joined the holiday makers to enjoy a walk along the seafront. We had planned a much longer walk along the Brig which you can see in the distance behind this beach hut model
This is just so cute and I would love it in my garden or one like it. Not sure Vic is skilled enough to make one but who knows.

Further along the prom we met this very tall fisherman. I love these huge figures that seem to be popping up along the seafronts of North Yorkshire.

As you can see at this time of the day the sky was blue with fluffy clouds but in no time at all it turned very dark and started to snow so we made a hasty retreat to a cafe for coffee and a toasted teacake. By the time we had finished that the sun was out again but we had already detoured towards the town instead of the Brig. We changed the walk we had planned and went through the cliff top gardens and the park and down another ravine to the beach again.

Brilliant day out and it blew the cobwebs away.

Love Chrissie xx


  1. ...great posting Chrissie, you took me back along memory lane :) I have visited Filey as a child and stayed also at the Bultlins there (my parents used to be Red Coats at one time! yikes that was so many years ago!!) in those days I cared about was sand, shells and candy floss...beautiful coastline up North...Easter blessing Chrissie...Melxx :)
