I am afraid I have neglected my blog for sometime, but there has been so much going on here with so many people coming to stay, there has been little time for reflection! As well as our Tall Storeys guests, it has been so lovely to see our dear friends from Romania, Switzerland, Selkirk in the Scottish Borders and of course, as always our much loved family.
Scarborough, over the last few months, has definitely been the place to be. With the beautiful weather, Armed Forces Day, Seafest, Status Quo, Boyzone, Little Mix at the open theatre, fantastic plays by Sir Alan Ayckbourn, Sir Arthur Sullivan`s Cox & Box - adapted by Chris Monks and Richard Atkinson at the Stephen JosephTheatre have been an absolute delight. More events at the Open Air Theatre coming up soon too - Roundelay which promises to be a fascinating and unique experience for the audience - starts 4th September.
During the Seafest week-end we have had the Leeds Caribbean Carnival performing on the beach, our very own mermaid visiting Scarborough, helicopter displays and rides with the RNLI life boat. Demonstrations by top chefs, craft stalls and much more. It is just fabulous to see the beach full to overflowing with everyone, old and young, enjoying the sand, sea and dare I say it, seagulls - when they are not stealing fish n' chips from unsuspecting visitors!
I have had to work hard keeping our garden in tip top condition - the sun has brought out the best of all our plants and we are certainly `blooming` at the moment - making it a lovely, tranquil and scented place for our guests to sit in and enjoy
August looks to be a very busy month for us, we are looking forward to meeting new and old guests alike and will be back on the blog as soon as I have a moment to do so!
Enjoy the summer everyone!
See you soon.
PS: Our very exciting news is that our youngest daughter Sophie is having her first baby in November. Congratulations to Sophie and Craig - as you can imagine, Ian and I are so excited and cannot wait...........
