Summer 2015...Yorkshire

 
 
 
Had my Grandma not fallen in love, whilst she was on holiday, I would probably have been a Yorkshire Lass...its in my DNA. I'm not sure why I've never been on holiday before to the Yorkshire coast, but I know it won't be my last.
 
I fell hook, line and sinker. It felt like home. Spectacular moors, quaint towns and villages...a coastline to take your breath away. It was a fantastic family holiday, relaxed, and as stress free as is possible, with my quirky little family.
 
The place we stayed was quiet and peaceful, just as I need it to be, with just the steam trains for company. Tucked away amongst the moors. Hidden from the world.
 
Runswick Bay, why, oh why, did I not discover you when my girls were little? Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay, Saltburn-By-The-Sea...little gems, full of character and charm. It felt like time had forgotten these little towns. Perfect.
 
Looking through these photos has brought the biggest smile to my lips...just loved it...and I will be back!
 
 
I've just returned from Florence and Venice. I feel very lucky to have spent a very special few days, with some very special people. More on that soon. Thank you for popping by, this week I'm planning on resting lots and popping over to visit my favourite blogs. Back soon :)

  3. Hi Amanda, looking through your photos my young grandsons 'OH WOW' came to mind, especially the one from the top of the cable car. If its rest you need maybe follow Minnie! She always looks relaxed.

  7. The Yorkshire coast is so beautiful, isn't it? I'm hoping my friends and I will go there next spring for a writing week in a big cottage so we can seek inspiration from the sea and the land. Just thinking about it makes me smile!
    Florence and Venice—two of my favourite cities too. Thanks for the post xx

  11. We were watching a Bear Grylls programme last night and he was in Yorkshire. We both commented on how wonderful the scenery looked and how we would love to visit and now your pics of the coast have made me want to visit even more! M x

    1. The Moors are just as beautiful as the coastline. We went out into the moors one evening and an owl flew right in front of us, so magnificent :) xxx

  12. Lovely photographs, Amanda, just the kind of places I love to visit too. I know York, and Harrogate, and Scarborough, and of course the route up north on the A1/ M1 from Norfolk, but I really know little of Yorkshire (being originally a Lancashire Lassie - well, Scouser!) Now of course there are a few places I've like to visit. Including Skipton, in hopes of spotting Lucy on leave from Attic 24. As for your continental trip - drooling! Lxx
