The first of our season’s outings was to Whitby, on September 15th.
It was a chance to visit this wonderful coastal town, with all its
amazing folklore, traditions and history, – at leisure; everyone doing their
own tour. Some took to the open-top bus to hear the commentary and learn
things we didn’t know before we arrived. Mine was that “black jet” came from
fossilized decaying wood from the monkey puzzle tree!
Others went for a walk, some shopping and nearly everyone chose their
favourite food for lunch – mostly fish and chips!
In the afternoon we went to Scarborough Spa, for tea and cream scones.
It was a lovely bright sunny day, and Nicola was our super driver, who had
to put up with 55 of us.
