Skirting the edge leg 7
Two updates in a day! right this is Leg 7 the route was a shirt day as I arranged to meet a mate in Whitby for lunch, even thought it was 100 miles shorter than previous days it was still a long day. So in order I left Atwick around 8am and headed along the coast to Whitby, from here and Lunch it was again north along the coast to Middleborough (horrible place) then again follow the coast north to Sunderland.
I went through Filey but didn’t stop, was packed out, managed to stop and grab a sand sample in Scarborough, the best view of the day was from Ravenscar, looking down into Robin Hoods Bay.
I did like the coast north of Whitby, and will like Suffolk add this to my places to return to at a later date.
From here it was into Middlesbrough, I wanted to use the transporter bridge but it was closed. I got lost getting to the other side of the river, no tanks to the dual carriageways with nowhere to pull over to look at the sat nav or maps.
