Daytrips- A Gentle Hornsea Holiday-Part 1
Hornsea is a seaside town on the East Coast of England. East Riding of Yorkshire to be precise. Following on from our journey to Hull back in March and purveyors of the 8 hour holiday and mini breaks or bust, Sarah and I decided to spend two nights in Hornsea and day trip around the coast, eat and play some slots.
First things first again omitting the M60 to Oldham and all of it’s upset we arrived at the Beachside Bed and Breakfast which was lovely and cosy with sea views and Breakaway biscuits. After a quick cup of tea and a small sit we were ready for food, beach, slots and pocket snacks.
In our first ten minutes of being out on the town, we found some lovely penis based graffiti.
'That's a bloody long way!' I said silently to myself realising that it starts near where I live.
I hope that this installation won the competition.
Feeling hungry but unable to sway from the bright arcade lights we played the most poignant slots in our slot careers.
Saw the best carpet.
and didn’t win any prizes.
But whatever as we fell into Sullivans and had fish, chips and mushy peas and a pot of tea. No peas for Sarah. This was needed and I am sorry to all the other fish and chipperies I have eaten in over the years but these were the BEST mushy peas I have ever had in my life.
Happily full and bankrupt we waddled down to the front and watched some waves, collected some shells and looked at things.
Please tell me where I can get a boat plant pot. It is a matter of urgency.
With the sun going down and weariness setting in we saw this lovely font complete with garden and seagull sign.
A bouncy dog and some waves.
We then walked over to look at the fountain and windmills. Not a penny in that fountain mind.
After a very big day and a very big tea we retired to The Beachside and watched Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, ate popcorn and made an action list for Wednesdays proceedings.
So far Hornsea scores = 9/10.
