One of the things we enjoyed during our stay in Whitby was taking an evening walk along the harbour. Two evenings were particularly pleasant for a stroll down to the pier.

On the way down to the town centre we passed the pleasure boats moored in the harbour

As the sun began to sink it lit up the east cliff which looked particualrly dramatic with the grey cloud behind.
