Whitby part 2

And there's more.....

We spent a couple of evenings in the children's play park in Pannett Park. It's  in the grounds of the Whitby Museum which would probably have been fabulous but you know park vs museum, duh. Maybe when they're bigger......?

The park is brilliant. Ocean themed and with lots to keep the kids busy. My favourite bit was Grier telling a group of teen boys to be quiet and get out of her way, which they did obvs. Grier the fierce.

That my friends is the Bark Endeavour. A 40% sized replica of Captain Cook's Endeavour. It was the only boat Brodie wanted to go on and he was not disappointed. Grier was less impressed. And I wasn't sick. Hooray.

She pretty much maintained this position for the whole journey, I was shocked. For comparison this is while the boat was in harbour.

I'm nearly finished, honest. Tomorrow we'll do 'Mingo land and the last bits of Whiby.

Whitby part 1

Yes there's going to be a part 2, I'm quite serious about that.

Whitby is pretty compact - that's a good thing. There's lots to do in a small area. We took the open top bus on our first day and promptly got completely soaked but it gave us our bearings and Grier had a quick nap in the torrential rain, as you do. I had no idea there were so many goths or bikers in Whitby, but don't let that put you off it's a nice contrast to all the beachy stuff. A bit of edge if you like. I also didn't know much about Captain Cook but I do now!

It's a steep walk down to the beach at West Cliff but we got the cliff lift back up. Genius idea.

He started the week predictably with mint choc chip but progressed to cinder toffee and bubblegum. Grier, a girl who knows what she likes stuck with a strict rotation of strawberry and chocolate.

We upgraded our spades. You need a good spade to bury a child.

OK, that's probably enough for today - I wouldn't want to spoil you. Come back tomorrow for more though. No really, please?
