Autumn in the Caravan
Tuesday brought the rain and the children equate this weather with Kandy Kingdom and off we went with our books to read (Old Filth and the Girl who played with Fire from the millennium trilogy) while the kids played on the equipment. It was really busy and noisy being a wet day in half term. On the way there we phoned Ben to sing Happy Birthday. He told us that Emma had treated him to champagne and trifle for breakfast and then they were off to the Jewish museum in Camden.
We went for a ride to Filey and parked on the promenade and admired the view and people watched. After a stormy night we went beachcombing on Ulrome beach which was strewn with stones.
Naomi joined us at the weekend. Ellie was scared of a woman sitting outside a pub dressed as a witch with an ugly mask for Halloween and so frightened by a 7 ft Grim Reaper in Tesco that Naomi asked him to remove his 'top half'. Good thing she was away from the caravan when some local kids came a calling!
Even at the end of October we managed to go to the beach, albeit in our boots and hats, and had a good game of football with Louis in goal.
There was a meeting of Lambretta owners and when these Mods removed their helmets they revealed themselves to be about our age. No Rockers to clash with, though. Later, on our journey home, we would see many scooters which had broken down awaiting the rescue services. Good pic from the Bridlington Free Press
No visit would be complete without a trip to Mr Moo's for homemade icecream and a go on the rides at the playground at Far Grange.

Here ends another season at the caravan. Unfortunately we couldn't find the end to the vacuum and Naomi had to just manage with the nozzle. We came back in time for the kids to go trick or treating and for us to prepare for our next holiday the following day.
