Photos from walks in Scarborough, Staithes, Runswick Bay and Sandsend, during our stay in Whitby.
On our way to Whitby we stopped off in Scarborough for a walk on the beach and a coffee, just before sunset.
Scarborough Pier Lighthouse.
Richard III was reputed to have stayed here. It is now a bar and cafe.
For the fishing village of Staithes we parked in the car park at the top of the hill. The weather was wet and windy, but this meant that there were few people about.
View back to the village from the harbour wall.
We head back into the village and cross the bridge over the beck.
Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse stayed in one of the cottages on the left, as part of their 'Gone Fishing' TV programme. Staithes was also a subject of the recent 'Villages by the Sea' TV series.
We looked in a few of the rock pools.
It was wild!
We walked out along the eastern harbour wall.
We walked back through some of the village's alleys and nooks and crannies and had a coffee in one of the cafes.
Then we headed up through the village to the cliff top.
Our arrival on the cliff top coincided with the sun coming out. The tide was now coming in and covering all the rock pools.
We took the higher path back to the car park. Staithes was well worth a visit!
We had a walk on the beach.
Then along the little sea front.
Then up through the houses.
Like Robin Hood's bay and Staithes, there were little alley ways to explore.
A walk on the beach at Sandsend.
Time to head home.
There are still plenty of places to visit left for the next time we go to Whitby.
