We had an enjoyable week near Scarborough when we exchanged our caravan in Cornwall for one at Cayton Bay, about three or four miles to the south. Scarborough has two large bays with the remains of a large medieval castle on the promontory that divides them. It is a typical traditional English seaside town, with something for everyone. The picture is of South Bay, where most of the facilities are. The North Bay has a number of hotels and a large sandy beach.

One of the attractions at Scarborough is the traditional donkey ride along the beach. These donkeys enjoyed a few minutes rest searching for titbits left over by holidaymakers while their minder called for them to come back. Eventually they were led back to their gathering point on the sands. Needless to say, my grandson insisted on having a ride, but that photo will have to be restricted to Facebook!

There are numerous attractive bays along the North Yorkshire coast, and this is South Bay at Scarborough. In the distance is Cayton Bay, with Filey a few miles beyond, just around the final headland.

The River Bain, at two and a half miles in length, is reputed to be the shortest main river in England. It rises at North Yorkshire's largest natural lake, Semerwater, and then joins the River Ure near Bainbridge in Wensleydale. There is a small hydro-electric station at Bainbridge, as well as an Archimedian Screw, used to raise water (just out of picture).

Richmond Castle in Richmond, North Yorkshire, stands in a commanding position above the River Swale, close to the centre of the town of Richmond. It was originally called Riche Mount, 'the strong hill'. The castle was constructed from 1071 onwards as part of the Norman Conquest of Saxon England. The Domesday Book of 1086 refers to 'a castlery' at Richmond in that year. Richmond is on the eastern edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
