Whoop, Whoop

On Saturday we went to Hornsea Mere, which is reputably the biggest pond in Europe, or something like that. We were lucky enough to see a Mute swan with it's cygnets and also the much rarer Whooper Swan.

So, we went to Filey Brigg, and whilst I took photos of birds, wifey caught critters in the rock pools with the kids. Who do you think had most fun?

This is Jack, we met him at Goathland. I've never read a Harry Potter book or seen a Harry Potter film, but I do know that some of the film was filmed at Goathland station, maybe Jack was in it, does anyone recognise him?

and when we looked down from the top of the 99 steps, this is what we saw. Later in the day, Katie and me walked the full length of the furthest pier. The last bit can be quite scary, especially if there is any wind, but I was ok because Katie held my hand.

When we got to the top of the 99 steps we saw this, we had a quick scout around but couldn't find any sign of Dracula, perhaps it was the wrong time of day. If you click on the photo and blow it up, notice how weather beaten the gravestones are.


This shop doesn't sell cakes, everything you see is actually soap. Tina wanted to have a look inside, but we didn't feel we could trust Harry, so Tina went in with Katie and me and Harry decided to climb the 99 steps up to Whitby Abbey.

A view of Whitby from Sandsend. I like the almost monochrome effect, which probably results from the photo being taken in the evening.

I like the atmosphere created by the sky on this picture. It was taken at Scaling Dam Reservoir in North Yorkshire.

More of the same

1 bird and 2 views, I'm spoiling you now. The bird is of course a Herring Gull, which you may recall seeing a little while ago. The views are of Robin Hood's Bay and May Beck.

Another bird, another waterfall

A pair of young swallows, and Mallyan Spout, near Goathland.

Been a while

The bird is a young Dipper and the main reason why I got the new camera (to take pictures of birds). The sheep are for those of you who don't like birds. For those of you who don't like sheep or birds, come back tomorrow.
