A day trip to Bridlington

Bridlington promenade

My dad, my sister and me!

Me, my dad and sister all decided to go on a spontaneous trip to Bridlington.
We started with a walk along the promenade and me and my sister went on a couple of rides. I narrowly escaped my lung being crushed and exploded due to the rides violent and nauseating jumps and spins which resulted in my sister being continuously rammed into my side. Ouch.

After that torture I obviously needed comfort in some sort of fried sugar coated confectionery, but not yet!
First - a speedboat ride.

This was way more fun and not at all excruciatingly painful. The wing in my hair and the spray of the sea on my face, was very pleasant indeed.
Finally I enjoyed a couple of freshly made donuts. They were hot, sugary and stodgy. Just what you'd expect, perfect.

After a bit more walking and sightseeing we stopped to get fish and chips from a place called Captain Scotts. I chose scampi and shared some of my dads plaice. The scampi was particularly flavoursome and the fish nice and moist. Didn't manage too many of the chips as I had those donuts not so long previously.

Didn't purchase any but this ice cream parlour was very extravagant and reminded me of a tv show I once saw about an ice cream store in Las Vegas

We then walked just enough for me to find eating again reasonable and stopped off at The Rowan Tree. This was a beautiful little cafe and my sister agreed that it was not the kind of place you'd expect to find in Bridlington. Gorgeous home made cakes and organic local produce. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Loved the style of this place, the counter with various tempting tea and cake
