From Starbeck to Infinity

July-2014-0240

It had rained in the nigh, I had heard it pitter pattering on the roof in that gentle relaxing way. My sleeping bag snug. We get up have a wash and breakfast each.

July-2014-0241

We pack the tent away and everything into Les car.

July-2014-0243

And then head to the bottom of road where the cycling is to pass once more through Starbeck itself.

July-2014-0245

While the street is lined we can at least see clearly the road ahead of us.

July-2014-0247

Ohh just like yesterday the anticipation.

July-2014-0250

What is that coming donw the road?

July-2014-0251

Oh its a Skoda

July-2014-0253

A French policeman

July-2014-0256

for some it was all too much.

July-2014-0262

Les said is he for real or is he a surfer dude?

July-2014-0264

Maybe he’s thinking how do i get to the beach from here?

July-2014-0276

Can you believe it? Why get the speed camera van out? Its a race for gods sake

July-2014-0279

Oh another Skoda,

July-2014-0281 

Then an eye in the sky, they must be close now.

July-2014-0301

Then a motor bike

July-2014-0306

and a yellow motor bike, then….

July-2014-0311

Its the racers themselves.

July-2014-0315

The crowd goes mad for twenty seconds and then

July-2014-0337

a yellow Skoda comes down the road.

July-2014-0345

And some more racers!

July-2014-0348

Here they are.

July-2014-0353

there they go.

July-2014-0355

And here is a straggler, go mate go.

July-2014-0363

Followed by a BMW? what

July-2014-0372

Some VW’s?

July-2014-0384

And some Skoda, now that's more like it.

July-2014-0392

The French police come

July-2014-0397

Then the British

July-2014-0401

And then thats it,

July-2014-0405

all over and

July-2014-0408

the crowd disperses.

July-2014-0409

We head back to the camp site.

July-2014-0410

Go to the toliet

July-2014-0411

Get in the Les Skoda and follow Surfer dude for while, until Les says find us somewhere to go.

July-2014-0413

Les isn’t impressed. I’ve taken us to Nowhere.

July-2014-0412

We get out and check that we truly are nowhere, have a piss in the Yorkshire countryside and then  take us to our real destination.

July-2014-0415

And just why have you brought us here Nack?

July-2014-0418

Believe me you’ll truly enjoy this.

July-2014-0421

Into the quaint village we walk.

July-2014-0424

I wonder what we will find here?

July-2014-0425

Perhaps this will tell us all.

July-2014-0428

At the bottom is a pub and

July-2014-0430

a very slippery slip way. Les saves me from sliding down, well when I say save me, I grabbed hold of him as I went sliding past him!

July-2014-0432

We walk the beach.

July-2014-0433

We walk the harbour.

July-2014-0434

I take some nice photos

July-2014-0436 

And some not so nice ones.

July-2014-0442

A boat comes into the harbour, the seagulls squalling, the waves crashing.

July-2014-0445

whilst a sailing yacht goes silently by.

July-2014-0447

Les wants to check out the opposite side of the harbour so off we go for a walk.

July-2014-0448

It looks no prettier this side of Staithes.

July-2014-0449

The tide is out so I go for a walk on the rocks, which are flat and not slippery.

July-2014-0451

I see that yacht again.

July-2014-0453

whilst i walk next to the sea edge on my own.

July-2014-0456

well not quiet.

July-2014-0459

Over there are the highest cliffs this side of England, somewhere I took Alan and Zoe once.

July-2014-0458

I recall parking the car by that aerial mast.

July-2014-0461

I get a call from the others the car parking ticket is up so please return.

July-2014-0463

I make my way back.

July-2014-0464

I arrive at he car and suggest its tea time and I  know somewhere in Whitby that would be just perfect.

July-2014-0469

And off we go

July-2014-0470

This better be good says Les.

July-2014-0471

 

Even Captain Cook like fish and chips here.

July-2014-0473

I take for some view to get a couple of photos and then back track on ourselves.

July-2014-0478

To this place, the Famous Whitby Fish and Chips at

July-2014-0482

The Fishman Arms.

July-2014-0483

Nice view Les?

July-2014-0481

Of course.

July-2014-0486

We order and wait.

July-2014-0490

Les has gone for the healthy option of new potatoes in loads and loads of butter!

July-2014-0491

So yummy chips, mushy peas and haddock.

July-2014-0492

All gone and one settles.

July-2014-0495

down with a decent cup of tea.

July-2014-0497

Once digested its time to head home.

July-2014-0500

We walk back

July-2014-0503

and just before we leave.

July-2014-0504

Les and my brother go and get dessert from the ice cream van. Aren't they full?

July-2014-0507

And so into the the Red Skoda

July-2014-0510

For a long long jouney home

July-2014-0511

And Les drives nicely for a change Winking smile

July-2014-0517

We are bakc at home some time later, all tired and ready for bed.
