I went to Scarborough today, it looked a bit gloomy when setting off but the sun came out mid morning and it was pretty warm, and not too busy first thing. The plan was to visit a few craft shops as I'm on the search for a needle felting tool. Non of the shops came up with the goods so looks like an online purchase. I couldn't come away empty handed so visited the Sewing Centre which is absolutely packed with hundreds of rolls of fabric and bought a few pieces. Plus, a trip to Scarborough wouldn't be complete without a coffee at Roasters. It is so nice to find an independent coffee shop which serves the most delicious coffee & cakes and has a barista who is passionate and knowledgeable about his coffee and the producers. I had Indian Peaberry and a black forest muffin and for an hour I was in coffee and cake heaven!
Had a walk on the prom to look at the donkeys which had appeared as if by magic for the Easter holidays along with a Jolly Roger pirate ship giving rides around the bay.
The mural in the photo is just along from the Blands Cliff Gallery. I'm not sure what the decorative red brick building is but it did look quite stunning against such a blue sky.
