BroadScot Posted October 11, 2014 Share Posted October 11, 2014 After Keith (CooWee)kindly asking if I had a nice week in N Yorkshire, my reply is, yes thank you, but with reservations. Bridlington by the looks of things, is trying to reinvent itself, the town centre is like a building site, which makes parking even more difficult than normal. The weather was mixed to say the least, well in truth, it was b....y awful at times. It did not stop SWMBO melting the debit card down, at the Hornsea Freeport though. Always worth a visit, but sadly a lot of the units are closed there. On our way there on Thursday, my new car decided it would show me a bright yellow spanner sign en route. So I gingerly parked the car at Tesco in Hornsea,and phoned my home garage. Told to phone RAC Motability, within 30 mins a lad was plugging in the computer ( oh how things have changed ) and then proceeded to give the new engine of diesel persuasion the awfiest blootering of revs, this apparently happens with diesel cars if you drive them too gently, they bung up wi sooty deposits! Beverley has a new layed doon parking area,in the town centre, but sadly the disabled parking signs are very very small indeed. We took a run out to Flamboro' Head Lighthouse. To see the "Dover Cliffs" that will be used for the new Dads Army film. Dongle reception on my caravan site was poor, at times no workie at all. So watched TV without BBC channels (atmospheric probs apparently on site with signal) and a DVD. Basically, if you thought Norfolk can be bad with wifi reception, N Yorks is no better! Now the new jallopy, for anyone like me wi iffy legs for getting in and out is pure dead brilliant, thank you Mr French motor company. Have to say also, the diesel engine is very smooth and quiet too. So there you go a quick six days in North Yorkshire. Never got on to the moors sadly, no point, with the rain stoating down. The modern caravan is a home from home, well nearlly, the seating is not good if yer back likes good support. I am though, delighted to see that the forum meet went well, congrats to all concerned.
