At the risk of getting boring, another grey and windy day for us. still at least we are not experiencing the horrendous rain and flooding in other parts of Yorkshire. We parked up in Flamborough (the village) and followed the signs down to South Landing beach – what an absolute delight…
Past the Lifeboat Station tucked away in the corner this sheltered cove opened out to become a mostly sandy bay, backed by white pebbles and chalky cliffs leading around to Flamborough Head.
We had the beach to ourselves and Poppydog was more than happy to fly around the beach, yelping and chasing seabirds.
Luckily for us a huge storm cloud passed over the top but very kindly waited until it was over the sea before lightening its load.
After a good runaround we took the footpath up a series of steps onto the cliff tops, looking back down onto the beach and then followed the path southwards for a while.
It was a bit bleak, cold and windy up here, though the views along to Dene’s Dyke and beyond to Bridlington were worth it.
Oh yes and how wonderful does the sea look?
It was quite a relief to head inland towards Flamborough and back to the car just to get out of this chilly wind.
