Going away somewhere for a few days feels even more of a treat than in previous years at the moment. It is many years since I last visited the North Yorkshire Coast so a week in and around Robin Hoods Bay was long overdue. As ever I looked for a garden I had not previously visited and I found the perfect garden. A secret garden.Dean Road and Manor Road Cemetery in Scarborough. We decided to call in to see the garden first and then make our way into the town. We found the Manor Road entry into the cemetery easily and made our way in. The path to the Secret Garden, a garden so secret it is not shown on the map signboard in the cemetery, was easy enough to find and we soon knew we had found it because of the large stone at the entrance.
We then made our way into the town and sat by the sea for a bit just thinking. It was a not a sombre visit, but it was one that makes you appreciate all the things that happen to a town and its people.
