Today we made the most of the sunshine and took some time out to visit Scarborough Mere. What a fantastic place! The Mere is a natural lake just on the outskirts of town with about 16 acres to explore. We walked around half of the lake but you could spend a few hours there if you had time.
The Mere was a popular tourist attraction in the 20th century and there is still a little café on site. Apparently there used to be a Spanish Galleon that took visitors for rides to a little island where they could dig for doubloons, but this has since ceased and Scarborough Mere Angling Club has taken over. We saw lots of little fish and caught a glimpse of two huge carp swimming near the shore!
