Last day in Whitby

The weather changed on the last day of our holiday. The rain came in and the temperature dropped. So it was a day for stopping in, reading, relaxing, drinking tea and eating cake (!) and otherwise occupying ourselves. But I do get itchy feet so during the afternoon, when the rain had eased for a while, I went out for a short walk on the West Cliff and took a few shots to remind me of an enjoyable week in the historic seaside town.

The Crescent – only half of it was ever built!

Looking through the Whalebone Arch – it’s hard to get a chance of this shot on a fine day as everyone wants their photo taken under the arch – not as much of a problem on a colder, wet day!

I decided to walk down to the bottom of the cliff and take a short stroll on the beach

  1. I love Whitby. So much character. Lovely photos. It looks as though you had it to yourself—rainy days have their advantages (although I wish it would stop here now).
