|sheltering from the wind- with added tequila|
The walks around here are super with the coastal walk to Whitby nearby and a disused railway line and cycleway close though downhill. In true pioneering spirit, we walked down over the fields into Robin Hood’s Bay to check out the hostelries and got a breathless on the way back up. We also went into the Fylingdale Arms, ( turn left at the bottom of the field) for really nice food and beer but didn’t get so breathless on the way back as it was only two fields down and not right down the steep slope into the village. The bus stops outside about every half hour so we went into Whitby for fish and chips in Mr Chips- always a highlight of a trip there though everyone has their favourite chippie in Whitby.
We managed a barbecue despite the wind but I felt so sorry for people trying to put up tents there. It seemed that tents were pitched furthest away from the facilities too but the owners had put a kettle and microwave into the campsite kitchen but it still looked a long walk up the field to go to the loo and wash up.
