It was a glorious day and I think the whole of Northern Britain was there! The parking was horrendous! It took us almost a hour to find a space, by then I was a very Grumpy Ada Bea! Anyway, having finally got a space we were all starving and headed, of course, for fish and chips!
The Magpie Cafe, has I think, the best fish and chips in England. I'm not really qualified to make that statement, as I haven't been to ALL the fish and chip shops in the land, but they are good! We sat by the quay and watched an assortment of boats go by, just lovely!
As many of you will know, Whitby is the home of Draculas' Abbey. So off we trekked up the cobbled streets, and many steps, to get to the top! I told the story of Dracula to Little Bea as we went up, I think I might of been a bit too dramatic, she looked rather scared as we approached the Abbey!
There's a great view of Whitby and surrounding coastline from the top, so we filled our lungs we Great Yorkshire Air, then the girls demanded a paddle, so back down the hill it was!
The streets are cobbled and very quaint, but no time for shopping, the girls after all wanted a paddle :(.......
But what's that I have spied?!......
Dotty About Vintage......I've got to go in there! Now my girls despair with me, any charity shop or vintage shop, well I'm like a child in a sweet shop! Just a little look.....I promise girls.......
Trudge, who owns the shop, was lovely, we talked, just a short while about all things vintage, and I came away with a great suitcase which I'm going to Custardify, more on that another day! ( Trudie does have a Facebook page and is hoping to sell online in the future!)
Back in the car and we headed off to Robin Hoods Bay.....MORE parking problems!
The rock pools are fantastic and we spent a few hours discovering all manner of weird and wonderful things!
We headed home across the the stunning Yorkshire Moors. Both my Grandparents came from Yorkshire, I love it there, it feels like its in my genes!
Now the Award bit....
