Whitby... a place to get your teeth into!

The aim was to pootle over to Sandfield House Farm, (a Club Listed Site 094/164) just north of the delightful seaside town of Whitby on Friday afternoon and have two nights there, soaking up the morning sun on the breathtaking North Yorkshire coast.

Instead, “soaking” was the operative word as the TV forecasts projected weather more akin to last winter’s storms than gentle May breezes – and it put the brakes on the chauffeur’s plan to pack up the ‘van and head east.

Their first GSD, Sam, once hid under the bed, afraid of the thunder and lightning that shook the ‘van in the middle of the night. The space was too small for a big dog, and as a result none of the trio could sleep.

Cleethorpes is on the North East Lincolnshire coast, just south east of Grimsby. Hmmm... doesn't exactly fill you with inspiration, does it? But give it a chance - it might surprise you.

Golden days

The Golden Gate Bridge, and San Francisco's famous fog

STEVE ADAMS is touring California in a motorhome for a feature that will appear in Camping & Caravanning magazine later this year. Here’s his final report from the road.

Redwood trees are the tallest (300 feet and more) – as well as the oldest (2,000 years and more) – living things on the planet, and are a constant companion on a road trip near the California coast, thriving in the damp and foggy conditions that prevail through much of the year.

There are umpteen parks with the name ‘redwood’ in them dotted from California up to Oregon, and all offer the chance to get up close to the magnificent trees in dense forests that are as moody as they are beautiful.
