Spadge & I had another adventure, this time we headed north over the Humber Bridge into Yorkshire. We’d found an awesome little cottage with a weekend still available despite it being the start of the high season.
The cottage was in a tiny farming village called
Bewholme, just 4 miles from the sea. It was a really peaceful & secluded area despite being so close to a lot of tourist traps. We had an amazing time & I am sure we will return to the area again some time.
The Shed, Beverley
On the way past Beverley we had a quick break for some food & drink at The Shed, the place had loads of character, delicious food & drinks but unfortunately we were let down by the service.
We couldn't have hopped for a more perfect cottage, from the mismatch furniture to the roll top bath. We were even greeted by a freshly made Victoria Sponge cake & farmyard cat.
Hornsea was only about 4 miles from our cottage, it was quaint, quiet & unassuming — just our sort of place.
Fish & chips on the beach! Erry day!
Just a short drive north of our cottage was the slightly more commercial seaside resort, Bridlington.
It was quite a contrast to Hornsea, more hustle, more bustle, more cheesy arcades & a terrifyingly large selection of ice cream flavours.
The quintessential british tourists?
I can't help but photograph every dilapidated amusement arcade I see — maybe I feel sorry for them.
So many shops here are completely lost in time, I'm sure some of the shop fronts haven't changed since the 50s or 60s.
I love Filey Brigg, I hadn't been for so many years but I remembered it well.
We walked out to the farthest point of the peninsula in blazing sunshine, when we turned round to come back inland we noticed a fog coming in from the south. Within 5 minutes that fog had gone from 'is that a low wispy cloud?' to 'where the fuck has everything gone'.
So cool to experience such a radical shift in weather & really surreal to still be able to hear all the people having fun on the beach without being able to see them.
On Saturday while wondering through Bridlington we noticed a flyer for an American car show — obviously we had to go.
We managed to sneak in the back with the cool kids (car owners) & got some wicked gold wristbands — which we will wear forever!
This truck was my favourite, I need it in my life.
OMG PULLED PORK!!!
If you didn't know, pulled pork is my favourite. I got pretty fucking excited when I saw an American school bus that had been converted into a kitchen serving 24 hour slow cooked pulled pork… om nom nom!
