Lincoln Tues 9/6 stunning city, cathedral and castle on top of steep hill, very good for thighs. Pretty cobbled streets leading up to cathedral selling all sorts vintage clothes, retro gifts and lots of tea shops selling huge tempting cakes to break your journey up or down. Lots of shops in town centre and river running through middle.
Onward to Beverley where we stopped at a farm and rode bikes into town in evening(when shops shut!!) Hmmm. Lots of pubs, felt a bit insecure as lots of smartly dressed drunks around. Must have been a race day.
Nice little site complete with Hettie, Lettie, Betty and Rufus, very friendly chickens who tried to get in van several times.
11/6 off to Bridlington caught train from CL in Bempton 5.50 for two return bargain! Bridlington very scruffy lots of renovation going on .left on next train back not impressed. Luckily village sweet, pond in centre but pub closed so resorted to Chez Friday, well stocked, well chilled.
Next morning some up to thick mist but 3hrs was enough to wait for it to clear so we tackled the elements and cycled out to RSPB Bempton Cliffs. It was worth the trips to see the Puffins, Kittiwakes, guillemots and Gannets as well as many others. Millions of them squawking and zooming around to find their spot on the cliff face, shame the weather didn't improve but we still had the experience to remember.
Next morning on to the North Yorkshire Moors. Stopped at Pickering and was amazed at the outfits going around town, real hippy town and full of old cars, it was like we had stepped back in time. Then we discovered there was a 60's festival going on!! We also met someone that jacqui used to work with, smallish world.
We found our farm for the night and the rain came down hard and kept going all night. After a hearty brunch we walked to next village. 3 miles up an down a 1:4 and back. Mad you may say but our village didn't have a pub! Tomorrow onward to Whitby and Robin Hood Bay.
