After a walk around the park, we decided to go and row a boat around the little island. I really wanted to go on the fun looking dragon pedalos, but because Jonny would be rowing the boat, he chose the rowing boat, perhaps because they are a little more 'manly' and less childish than the dragon boats (even though I would totally have gone on the dragon boat). The park wasn't overly busy and there were only a few others on boats. I sat back and enjoyed the view of the park whilst Jonny rowed the boat. I think if I had tried we would have taken well over an hour to get around the glen! You can hire either one of the rowing boats, canoes or dragon pedalos for half an hour - this will allow you to go around the lake approximately two times. If you both want to sit back and enjoy the sights, then I'd recommend going for a sail in one of the swan launches where someone else will steer the boat for you.
After a lovely stroll around Peasholm Park, we headed to the beach which was only a two minute walk away. It couldn't have been a more perfect day; the sky was a crystal clear blue and not one cloud could be seen. The sun shone brightly and the sea looked ever so calming. My favourite thing about Scarborough beach had to be the beautifully vivid and colourful beach huts; they looked like a beautiful rainbow nestled at the front of the sandy shore. There's nothing more relaxing than walking along a sandy beach and watching the waves. Before heading home, we got some chips from the nearest chippy, North Bay Fisheries. There was a huge queue even before it had opened so we knew that we had chosen a good one! Chips are a must when you go to the seaside aren't they? They were so delicious too and the perfect ending to an amazing weekend.
