Whitby

From York, on my previous post, we travelled on to the picturesque fishing town of Whitby, on Yorkshire’s east coast, at the mouth of the river Esk. What a beautiful town, well known for it’s black Jade jewellery, favoured by Queen Victoria and its association with Captain James Cook  the famous British explorer.

We stayed about 5 hours in Whitby and while my “better half” visited the local shops, I spent time capturing a few images.   We also took the time to enjoy a superb pub lunch of fresh fish and chips. A great day out!

    • Hi Jocelyne, many thanks for your praise. The 2nd image of the “Breakwater” was captured on the steps leading up to St Mary’s church, which is the church in the 3rd image. If you open the 3rd image to full size, you can see the steps, behind the houses.

  3. What a charming town, and lovely images! They’re all beautiful, Jim! I love taking photos through archways, gates, windows and doors. I like the last image framed by the stone walkway.
