fish and chips

Thank you for following my  holidaypost card  blog over this week in May around the East Coast near Bempton Yorkshire. Retuned home today last few pictures of the seaside, including Fish & Chips which are always at their best near the sea. Just over another 1000 miles round trip added to our campervan. Next trip planned for June.
