Our first 2 nights we were parked on our friends drive in Filey - a fantastic bungalow holiday home in which the fittings are the late 70s, early 80's intact, for example a brilliant formica kitchen with sliding doors and rose-patterned carpets...I love these glass doors and the display of pottery...
|Filey beach - Lovely weather...a few showers but gloriously warm...|
|I love Swing Boats...|
Beach chalets at Filey... I like the colours...available for hire right on
the beach - Baker's Beach Chalets on the Coble Landing. Another nostalgic
moment, they remind me so much of East Coast holidays with my Nana and Grandad...
|The fantastic view of the Vale of Pickering and the Wolds from Lebberston Touring Park...|
Then we moved on to Lebberston Touring Park,
a couple of miles outside Filey on the way to
Scarborough - an immaculately run 5* site- highly recommended...

|We thought Sterchi's had closed down, but- hurrah!- thay'd just moved round the corner!|
|Beautiful boats at the Coble landing, Filey...|
|Cocoa in Scarboro' - a retro sweet shop with a fab collection of vintage confectionery ephemera in the window...|
My first Wonka Bar (It's my all-time favourite film...)
|"I got a Golden Ticket!" (Don't tell me that they're in every bar...)|
|Love this Fudge Shop display with shelves groaning under the weight of goodies, and the pom-pom shelf trim|
Sorry for the sweetie and chocolate emphasis in this post - we did do lots more, I promise...
