The better weather continued last week whilst Mick was on holiday from work so on Thursday we set off in the car without a destination in mind and made our mind up on the spur of the moment to head towards the seaside.
Scarborough is probably our nearest seaside town, it's about sixty two miles away so that's where we decided to make for.
Scarborough has two bays, there's a dog ban on the South Bay beach between May and September, but with it being March Archie was allowed on. He loves spending time on the sand and dashing in and out of the sea. He looks like a big woolly bear at the moment, he's going to the groomers tomorrow to be clipped, what a difference we'll see then, he looks so different without his fur.
There were lots of other dogs on the beach for him to play with too.
After all the bad weather we've had just lately I couldn't believe that the sun was shining. It was still quite cold but we were wrapped up well.
Scarborough is the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast and it's always busy whenever we visit, even at this time of year.
There's a working harbour and kiosks line the street selling the day's catch. We always buy a treat for Archie, he's come to expect it now.
After giving Archie a good run on the beach we had a wander along the front and we may have shared a tray of chips. I was good though and stayed away from the amusement arcades.
As I mentioned in my last post, we don't walk Archie too far these days so we gave him another run on the beach before heading back home.
Though we couldn't visit the seaside without indulging in an ice cream. Another lovely day out.
