Seaside special...

We went to Bridlington. Well, what else are you gonna do when the sun is shining and you have a small amount of fuel in the car? We had the award-winning south beach pretty much to ourselves, although the chill wind prevented us from donning Speedos and knotted hankies. Such is the British way that the town was full of elderly folk on those annoying mobility vehicles and, generally, overweight and aesthetically challenged families. We ate chips and ice creams amid the seagulls and M tried - but failed - to win Finn a plush Thomas The Tank from a grabber machine. Apparently, there's an arts festival (BAF - I'm sure you can work out where this acronym is coming from) going on in the town right now but we couldn't find any sign of it, other than a big banner announcing its presence. Maybe that was the art.
