Filey (day 2)

Dad made it to Filey yesterday and is staying with friends. I did speak to him briefly last night. Today has been a "rest" day and instead of cycling they have all been walking along the beach at Filey. In fact they walked all the way along the 5 mile stretch of beach. Stopped off for an all day breakfast. So not much of a "rest" day with a 10 mile beach walk! Dad got in too late to see the Tour going up Mont Ventoux live .... so instead he will watch the highlights so he didn't want to know the result!

Tonight they are going to one of the villages that has a scarecrow festival and to find a pub for meal and a pint.

Dad was telling me a tale on his route into Filey he was riding along the pavement to keep himself out of the way of the traffic and then he noticed a police woman up ahead so he hopped back onto the road to cycle past her. Turns out it was only a scarecrow!

Tomorrow Dad will move on heading towards Hull.
