Am just back from a couple of days in Whitby. It is such a lovely little seaside town. I was looking forward to seeing the Abbey - and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. It was well worth the 199 steps to get up to it!
Loved also seeing the colourful beach huts.
While we were there, we saw the rescue helicopter called out twice! A warning to be careful around the cliffs and seaside areas when on holiday.
All in all it was a lovely two days. It is a kind of awkward place to get to from where I live and we decided to head back via Carlisle which involved going cross country from Whitby. All was going well until we got near Penrith when there was a huge hold up - cue diversions and doubling back. 7 hours later (yes 7 hours!) arrived home.
York pictures soon.
