Prior to my holiday I'd been looking forward to early morning walks along a deserted beach. I wasn't disappointed. The North Bay was stunning and I had to take a photo.
|North Bay, Scarborough|
|Take a walk between North and South Bay. There are some great photo opportunities.|

At night there are many restaurants and bars to choose from and afterwards take a leisurely stroll along the sea front or go mad with your tuppences at one of the amusement arcades. Or, you can be scared silly in the Terror Tower.
Speaking of terror - there was an ornament in the luxury apartment I was staying in. I thought it odd that such a freaky and old-fashioned item would be positioned under the wall-mounted plasma. Its eyes followed me wherever I went.

Relaxing at home with a glass of wine, I watched Henry Poole is Here. If you haven't seen this film then try to. It was a strange movie but one that leaves you thinking for ages afterwards. I'm glad I watched it on my return because it caught me at the right time, when I wasn't yet ready to face everyday routines.
|Yes, this is correct. You would have to see the film to know why the picture is different from the film title.|
