Meet the parents

Yesterday mine and Amy’s parents met for the first time. We went up to Amy’s sides house up at Robin Hood’s Bay up on the North Yorkshire coast. The house is up on the cliff edge with spectacular views. Their garden is beautifully kept and still has a good number of flowers still blooming into Autumn. Our parents got on well happy discussing mutual loves of folk music and craft skills.

After dinner we took a walk down to the sea front.

Robin Hood’s Bay forms the end (or start of Wainwright’s coast to coast meaning there are always a handful of walkers around.

For traversing the steep path of the bay I was trying out the mama and papa’s baby sling, which I have to say has been very good. It supports well across my back and I can put Alice in and out by myself which has been an improvement on other types we’ve tried and looked at. So far I’d just tried it round the flat areas of Hornsea, so it was good to try it over some more difficult ground.

Back at the house Grandad Foster and Alice and our dads talking in the garden.

We had a lovely day out, a good meal, a nice walk and our parents got on. I’m sure Alice will love visiting the bay as she gets older and can enjoy getting out and about in the waves and rock pools.

  1. What a lovely account of your special gathering! Your photos are great. I loved going to Yorkshire when we lived in Surrey in the 80’s, but I don’t think we went to the coast. We obviously missed some great scenery.

    1. It’s a lovely quiet spot. There is a nice walk up the coast to Whitby (of Dracula fame). If you set out in the morning arrive at Whitby for lunch then a gentle walk back after. The Yorkshire coast has some stunning areas Bempton cliff and the puffins being one of my favourites.
