The storm that was forecast today thankfully tapered into a drizzle and by the time we reached Filey, the sun was beginning to shine through the clouds.
Amanda Pickles was down on the beach with her group of donkeys - Max, Chico, Neville, Rueben, Oscar and Alfie - winner's of Britain's Best Beach Donkeys in 2008.
While Amber was judging, I took some photos of the donkeys and standing over with Chico was Olivia. Her mum said they live in Huddersfield and during the past six weeks Olivia had been to see the donkeys three times.
On this occasion, she had brought Giles, her teddy bear. Olivia told me that it was Giles's first holiday and she wanted him to meet Chico.
Also on the beach was Amanda King with her donkey William being judged for best individual. He's normally at the other end of the beach working with Amanda's other donkeys. I wonder if the donkeys were comparing notes about each end of the beach!
After all the judging, it was time to say goodbye and begin the long drive down to Skegness to stay the night. In the morning the final judging will be at Skegness and Great Yarmouth.
Day four, Filey and Skegness (155 miles)
