1. No real seaside holiday is complete without a ride on a pirate ship - this was its first trip of the day. 2. The toddler wanted to go the other way from the rest of the family. 3. Beach huts and occupants. 4. Ann on the Yorkshire Belle (red coat, fifth from the bow). 5. Boat watchers at the harbour. 6. Bridlington is a major port for lobsters, which are exported all over Europe.

The view from our Travelodge window of the Grand Hotel opposite and the lighthouse on the harbour wall. The two gulls on the lamppost were quite quiet! Off to Filey and its sea mist, called 'fret'. Bottom picture looks south to Bempton, the one above north to Filey Brigg.
There was a splendid brass band, but the organisers had clearly not expected so many visitors, who were still arriving at half-past three. Parking and getting in was slow, stalls ran out of food, there were long queues for the portaloos and the bins could not cope.
The early mist cleared from Swaledale (you can see the big marquee just right of centre) and traffic jammed the narrow roads. The 101st Reeth Show was being held on a bank holiday for the first time, it was hot and sunny, and folk came from miles around.
