All Gothed out in Whitby !

It took us by surprise when a Goth couple strode along the rows of caravans at Sandsend (though I later regretted missing an incongruous picture !)…….. then we realised that we’d stumbled across the Spring Goth weekend in Whitby !

April 2016 York then Sandsend

Sandsend April 2016 (32)

York Rowntree caravan site is in the city centre, a short walk along the river to all of the tourist sites, including our main reason for going to York, to see The Flying Scotsman in The National Railway Museum.

We quickly decided we’d had enough of the big city, and as luck would have it there was one pitch available at a site overlooking the beach at Sandsend.
we dove over the moors in superb sunshine, had lunch at the site then quickly hit the beach. Linds and fred had a good old play, posed by the beach huts, then we got into town via the harbour and caught up with the Goths (see next post !).

We were treated to sun, rain, hail, sleet and cold…….. sometimes all in the same day ! A passing Tucano seemed to be taking a look at us !

We revisited an old haunt at Malham and walked to Gordale Scar, again in some rain, before a good lunch in the Lister Arms where Freddie had his picture taken for their Facebook page !
