Boxing Day promised to be a fine day – perfect for a winter walk. I was up earlyish – unlike the rest of the family I’m not one for lying in. After breakfast I made up some butties, packed my rucksac and leaving the house, walked the short distance to the start of the Cinder track – the former railway line to Scarborough which has now been converted into a footpath/ cycle track. It was a bright and sunny with a blue sky, which meant it was cold and frosty with some ice underfoot, but I was well wrapped up and as I walked I soon warmed up.
Scarborough was a bit far for my walk! but I’d planned a route walking on the track as far as the village of Hawkser where I’d cut across to the coastal path, along which I’d return to Whitby.
At the bottom of the steps I made my way through the busy streets of the old town, crossed over the bridge and made my way back to our holiday home for a well earned brew!
Probably a longer walk than my hip would put up with these days, but otherwise within my reduced capacities. Nice weather, nice photos, nice experience. I’m envious.
I’m trying to make the most of being able to manage longer walks. I’m getting older and you never know how long you’re going to be in good health.
Pity about your hip
I bet the rest of the family were quite envious of that walk on such a beautiful winter’s day. I certainly am.
They preferred the lie in. I’m the only walker in the family. Luckily I don’t mind being on my own 😉
A lovely walk on a beautiful morning with great views – it would be a shame to stay in bed and miss it all 🙂
Too true Eunice.
Great to read and to saw the pictures .
“Looking down towards Whitby” is my fav of all.
Thanks Neha 😀
I was thinking “my kind of walk” till you got to the mud and the potential for slipping over the edge! Gorgeous coastal scenery.
There’s always an element of danger 😬 in my walks 🤣🤣🤣
Cracking walk – a great combination of interest and scenery. No better way to spend a sunny Boxing Day
We stayed at Hawsker in October and walked the other way to Robin Hood’s Bay. Hopefully if we stay there again we can walk your route. 🙂 Looks great.
It’s a good route with some variation. Best try it when it’s not so muddy on the coastal path!
Amazing views 😍. You were lucky with the weather. The weather in Cumbria was awful during Christmas break.
The weather is often different on the two sides of the country even though it’s not a long way as the crow flys
