I thought it would be a good idea to take advantage of England's "heat wave" of 26 degrees Celsius, and relax at the beach. After an hour of winding country roads, we arrive in Scarborough, Yorkshire, a resort town in England. The harbour town is situated in beautiful Limestone cliffs with two seafront Bays on the Eastern UK coast, and has been a popular holiday spot since the 1600's.
Our first stop was Scarborough Castle, built in the 1100's on a cliff between the two Bays. The Castle ruins sprawl out down the cliffside towards the water, and provide a great view of the town and water.
The smell of fresh fish and chips around the town will make your mouth water. We stumbled upon "The Golden Grid" on the boardwalk, known as one of the top fish and chips restaurants in the world. After lunch we checked out the beachside fair (established in 1235 by Henry III) with fresh seafood booths, rides and of course lots of candy.
We finally reached our destination of purpose, the beach. The fine sand and crashing waves was very tranquil, and just what we needed after the past week.
After eating a Giant Yorkshire Pudding for dinner - literally the largest Yorkshire Pudding i'v ever seen, we couldn't miss out on playing a game of air hockey at one of the several Arcades that line the Boardwalk.
Watching the sunset behind the rocky cliffs was the end to a rare sunny day in England.
This casual look with distressed shorts, and a tank were perfect for a relaxing summer day wandering around Scarborough.
