A weekend away - just what the Dr ordered!

Now I do go away for the weekend quite often but not usually with my OH! So when the offer of a caravan came up for the weekend I could not resist. Our Friends Pat and Bill have one at a park near Filey - the destination for many of my childhood holidays so with fond memories awaiting we set off on Friday night. Half way there I was gutted that I had left my precious promarkers behind so on Saturday we set off to Whitby with some craft shopping in mind.
Hubby took these pics - Megs and I had an icecream whilst he went up the 199 steps to the Abbey for this amazing view!
After finding the craft shop I also found the Whitby crafty Individuals stamps and as I had got my distress inks was up for an inky night of fun :0)
Doesn't it look glorious - we were so lucky with the weather!
And here is the view from the South Cliff where we parked the car along with the rest of North Yorkshire so it seemed LOL. After a chilled evening watching Dr Who, X Factor and then comedy last night of the proms, whilst I beavered away making atcs for an upcoming meet, we had another wonderful nights sleep (the bed was amazing! yes honestly in a caravan!) we decided Filey was Sundays destination.
Sadly the only downside (apart from the promarkers) after a small town tour the tide was in. I did really want to see the sea though and I very much did!
Right up to the sea wall we literally sat for an hour just watching and relaxing with the sea. People and dog watching whilst we sat was wonderful.
and the brigg in the distance - got to love the wonder of Filey x
Finally there is my girl - just like me- fascinated by the calming effect the sea has , loving the sounds and smells and we have loved spending time with her too. A wonderful family weekend which has recharged our batteries for another busy week ahead. Thanks Pat and Bill xx
