Wanderlust Wednesdays: The English Seaside

As the English Summer starts to dissipate and gives in to the cold brutal winds, crisp air and beautiful autumnal colours, I can't help but look back on some nostalgic images and musings from a few of my faviourite places. 
I come from Yorkshire, on the East Coast of England, which offers some amazing seaside destinations, such as Bridlington, Scarborough and Whitby. All are absolutely bursting with history, fantasy, fantastic views and walks. 
As a child, I remember being dragged out on those cold and windy days, when you want nothing more than to stay at home in front of the box, or with a good jigsaw. But thinking now, it's those kind of days that shaped your childhood, made the memories and gave you the future appreciation of where you lived, and of course, the plans to drag your kids along blustery cold English beaches.
What part of where you grew up do you particularly love?

More Bridlington Beaches!
Fun coloured beach huts at Whitby. 
Lovely victorian streets and houses in Whitby, where Bram Stokers' Dracula was based!
Beautiful Scarborough in the snow

Who can resist an English Seaside? Rain or shine, snow or sun, it holds a special place for me. 

Short and sweet post for today, hope you enjoyed!
