Pilgrim and Mrs. Pete returned home yesterday after a pre-season tour of some of the country's premier seaside holiday resorts, finishing with Torquay. The converted Green Goddess camper van had clocked up a fair few miles but it would have been more if Mrs Pete had had her way but it was Pete himself who had the last word on the itinerary. He tried to console her with a large rum and ginger, having put her favourite Simon and Garfunkle track on the aging record player but it only seemed to make things worse.

So which were the two resorts that Pete crossed off the list and how did he explain his decision to his disappointed wife?

Scarborough - yes
Forest Green - no - doesn't fit seaside resorts, but clever link I hadn't noticed.

Sorry but things seem to be going awry here - probably my fault.

Jumping all over the place for the moment!

That's right! Red Rum used to train on Southport beach.

So why wouldn't Pete visit Scarborough or Southport ?

Sorry - I missed the suggestion from Tom Cobbley while answering Argylegames. Not the intended answer but I think I prefer it. Any offers on the original one. Remember Pete likes bragging rights!
