Yesterday we had to make a journey up to Scarborough on the Yorkshire Coast to attend a family funeral. We set out just after 8a.m. and arrived back home at just after 8p.m. It was a long day! The outward journey took over 4 hours as we travelled through snowy Derbyshire towards Chesterfield, Worksop and Doncaster where we avoided the reported queues on the A1 by taking the A19 towards Selby. Here, through the village of Escrick and beyond we travelled through a winter wonderland of bleak landscapes and brilliant white frosted trees. We reached Scarborough an hour early so we parked near the sea and had a little walk near the harbour.
Some brave souls were walking on the beach. After the services we slipped and slid our way back to the car park. As we drove back along the A64 towards York the car thermometer showed it was -6 degrees. It was so good to get back to a cosy warm home.
