Monday 14th September: Peasholm Park and Boggle hole

The weather was back to normal this morning, and we decided that a walk in Peasholm Park would be just the thing, and on the way we diverted to the Ravenscar Road, as we like to have our morning cuppa where there is a nice view, like this.
We then drove down into Scarborough and parked near the entrance to Peasholm Park.
There weren't may people in the Park, by contrast to the weekend and we were surprised to see a pair of Black Swans among the geese and ducks on the lake.
And not getting the attention they deserved, there were some rather splendid ducks too, here's one.
The bandstand and moored dragon boats rather spell out "end of season" though Scarborough itself remains busy at all times of the year, there were noticeably more "Senior Citizens" walking around than usual.
It was nice to see that the gardens are still looking good,and there are still some fine flowers to be seen. We watched the squirrels come down to drink from the gully by the boating lake and made our way back to the Park entrance, where we crossed the road and had lunch in one of the local cafes.
Pat had done enough walking by now, so we had a leisurely drive back to caravan and she rested.
I meanwhile drove down to "Boggle Hole" and walked down to the beach where I realised something i had forgotten, when the tide is in, you can't see Robin hoods Bay from there, so to get the photo I wanted I had to climb the 200 odd steps out of the ravine on the southern side to reach the cliff top
There were some rather splendid Rowan trees laden with berries
Heavy work at my age, but I made it and the view was well worthwhile.
It had been a good day.
