What brought you to the Yorkshire coast?
‘I’ve lived in Scarborough for 20 years. I’ve always loved the sea and Scarborough’s wonderfully scenic and unique coastline, which can rival anywhere in the world.’
What keeps you here?
‘My husband (Douglas Gray) and I run a fine art gallery here in Scarborough. We both really enjoy meeting our many gallery visitors from all over Yorkshire and beyond. It’s nice to receive lovely feedback regarding Douglas’s work, including his paintings of Scarborough’s coastline.’
Do you have a favourite view?
‘We live near the Clock Tower on the South Cliff and the view from here of Scarborough bay and beyond is just breathtaking.’
Where’s the best place to eat?
‘We both really like Da Claudios in Scarborough town centre. It has such a varied menu and the food
and service are always excellent.’
What’s the best thing about living on the coast?
‘Living by the coast means you can breathe in the wonderful sea air and see the fabulous views every single day. Although you do find you sometimes take it all for granted.’
Tell us a secret only locals know about.
‘Hairy Bob’s Cave. It’s a hole in the rock, approximately a metre deep, at the foot of Scarborough Castle. It’s origins and purpose are shrouded in mystery. It’s clearly man-made, but who made it and why?’
