Whitby

A week by the sea – day 2

With all the COVID-19 restrictions in place we have decided that we will not be taking a holiday this year so now is a good time to delve into the archives and organise a virtual tour of a few English coastal resorts. Welcome on board and enjoy the views! We would normally sign off our postcards with the hackneyed ‘Wish you were here’, but at the moment it isn’t appropriate. You may not wish to be ‘here’. If that’s the case, don’t succumb to temptation of travelling when you know it’s much safer to stay at home.

Day two – Greetings from Whitby, North Yorkshire

Memories of the abbey, 199 steps, the harbour, Captain Cook’s statue, the whalebone arch and fish and chips. No visit to Whitby is complete without the almost obligatory fish and chips. Several establishments vie for the title of ‘Best fish and chips in Whitby’, or even the UK. This one pictured is Mister Chips in Church Street but other contenders include The Magpie, Trenchers, Hadleys, The Fisherman’s Wife, Royal Fisheries and dozens more.

You just have to accept that some days you are the pigeon (or in this case seagull), and some days you are the statue.
