We are back from Scarborough. There was a delicious out-of-season feel about the place, and it was well worth putting up with the chill wind that blew in from the North Sea in order to experience it. Words can't really describe the November mood, so I am going to let the pictures take centre stage.
Who knows when this sun-metre that stands proudly on the promenade was last set : certainly it wasn't any yesterday that I was there. But even in the damp mists of November there is a certain beauty about the thing : from the studied shading of the lettering to the graceful sweep of the pointer arrow.
The boat in the foreground is the MV Hatherleigh which is a former deep-sea trawler, floating museum, pirate-radio station and corporate hospitality vessel. Now it is a nice centre-piece to a foggy photograph.
This is one of two statues of swimmers that are located in Scarborough. This one is at the far end of the harbour, next to the lighthouse. I never managed to find the other. It was a foggy day.
