Thank You for sharing your lovely trip! Always love your photos!

Glorious to read this on a chilly March day. Makes me so excited about exploring places like Scarborough and Hull. All I have to do is get on a train from the Very Big City and go....

Hello to Shelley (w.cork) who posted a comment on February 20 below about the poem with the line "I grow old, I grow old, I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled, do I dare eat a peach, I shall wear white flannel trousers and walk along the beach!"
That's also one of my favourite poems called The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot. Also one of my absolute favourites!


I love to follow you on your travels. You make the countryside look so beautiful and the picnics so much fun. My wee ones are grown now, but I remember our explorations through your posts.

I love these long blogs and your imagery through words and pictures gives me a chance to see a part of the world I have never been to. :-)

Hi Lucy, fab post! I was born in Scarborough, and currently live in Pickering, not far from there. You were lucky with the weather! I love the beach huts too, and have taken lots of photos of them! So glad you and your family had a happy time in this part of Yorkshire xx

Jenny Johnson

Glad you enjoyed yourself in Hull and East Yorkshire as that's were I'm from and I love Yorkshire it's a beautiful County. Your photo's look fab. x

What a wonderful vacation- thanks for sharing it! So much packed into just a couple of days. Your school system sounds great with nice, evenly spaced breaks for the kids.


Ooh. Got all nostalgic!! Have been back in Oz for a year after 15 years in Otley. Visited the deep and the east coast so many times. Love your Yorkshireness and the bright colors you find. Am waiting the winter wreath tad a. ..


Honestly, the way you write and describe things and places and feels, I could continue reading on and on!


What a lovely holiday, Lucy. Do I see a blanket made in the colors of the beach hut in your future? Enjoy the week with your family.

A particularly gorgeous post Lucy. I love Scarborough and Filey. Filey for its quiet old fashioned style and Scarborough for the fact you can have the brash and the beautiful all in one day! we have also visited the Deep and were thrilled by it especially sitting above sea sipping tea.


I lived in Scarborough for a year doing my teacher training, and I met my husband there! I have never been as cold as when I lived there, but my how I loved it and still do when I get a chance to visit. The colourful beach huts are new to me and look fabulous! The Harbour Bar, all mirrors and formica, is one of my favourite places, we have a picture of it up in our bedroom. Thank you for the tour of a lovely place. xx


Great post. Love, love, love the beach huts!


Although I am American, I lived in England for 2 years as a child. My parents insisted on visiting and seeing every single thing we could, to soak up as much England in our time as possible. I have so many memories of freezing cold beaches and winter picnics, and your post brought them all back! I don't even crochet; I read your blog for the beautiful colors and the lovely British perspective and photos. Thanks for reminding me of home in such a lovely way. :)


Hi Enjoyed your post on your mid term holiday. Its over 25 years since we visited the area. Just love the colourful beach huts. This is something you don't see here in New Zealand.Thank you Lucy once again for sharing with us.

Dear Lucy,
Now that I've read your great post, I feel like I've been on holidays myself! Thanks! Those beach huts are amazing, and of course they were there for you.
Greetings from Paris,

Enjoyed your post. I lived in Karlshrue W. Germany for yrs. and did lots of traveling. I regret never making to Great Britain. I, too, felt like it was a tour.

Liked learning about English schools. The terms are different here in the US but some schools are now yr. round with breaks throughout the yr.

Dawn Langley

Glad you had a lovely time in our part of the country. I live in Hull! Lovely to see our beautiful East coast from an outside perspective. I think we take it for granted, being a short distance away. Thank you so much allowing us to share in your family time x


Oh Lucy, your long holiday posts with the lots of photos make me homesick for places I've never been! It's lovely to see your part of the world.


The colorful huts - that is so you!
did they not inspire already a new project? or did they color them in your honor :) you have the most amazing feel for colors! Love your blog and work! greetings from New Zealand ...


What a lovely post. Great photographs, I do love Northern beaches. Those beach huts were glorious such rich glowing colours.
I've stayed at the Grand Hotel, it wasn't that grand though. I bet your youth hostel was just as good.
Looks like you had a brilliant break with lots of lovely memories & photos.


Lovely photos and post! I spent many happy childhood holidays in Scarborough (and Filey), frequenting those very spots you describe! Glad to hear the enjoyment is still there 40 years on xx


Looks like a lovely break nothing like being by the sea

Looks like an absolutely fantastic trip, I wish I could walk that beach and breath in that fresh air! Lovely!
