A summers day in Scarborough

Scarborough, Britain’s first seaside resort, has been causing hypothermia in visitors for over 360 years and is still as popular with the masochistic as ever.

Scarborough is a great place to stay for a holiday or short break if your idea of a good time is seeing how many sets of thermal underwear you can get on under your parka.

The beaches are safe, sandy and accredited ... its a pity the howling gale from the North Sea renders them a barren wasteland fit only for suicidal penguins and SBS selection. The water should only be entered if wearing a full immersion survival suit and even then only if you have a paramedic team on standby.

Even Geordies have been known to put a cardigan on in Scarborough.

In other words ... its cold.
