400 Miles Completed of the 1,000 Mile 2017 Challenge, A ‘Moses Red Sea’ Moment.

Post 141: 1 May 2017, Cleveland Circles 29

One of the good things about a Bank Holiday is that many people have a lie in and so leaving York at 7.30am the traffic was very light. This was the penultimate walk of the Cleveland Circles walk we had started on 11th October 2016. We were soon walking from Holbeck along the dramatic coastline.  An isolated pill box appeared below us.

A mile into the walk I had completed 400 ‘boot’ miles of the Country Walking Magazine 1,000 mile 2017 challenge I am undertaking. I am just ahead of schedule.

Many of our former sea defences are disappearing into the sea!

After walking inland at Blue Dophin Holiday Park to near Cliff house Farm we circled back towards Cayton Bay for lunch.

Whilst having lunch between the rocks we waited in hope that the sea would retreat so that we could walk along the whole of Cayton Bay Beach.

Sure enough, with perfect timing the sea withdrew (not quite a ‘Moses Red Sea moment’ but close), to enable us to walk along Cayton Bay Beach.

A Scarborough golf course signalled that we were nearing the end of our walk.

There were fine views of Scarborough at the end of the days walk.
