Since our trip to Malham Cove a couple of months ago, we’ve been thinking of more day trips to discover more of Yorkshire. One of those was a day trip to Whitby – a little seaside town famed for being the setting of Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’.
We had a great plan – hire a car, drive through the North Yorkshire Moors and vlog our day on the beach. The week before had been glorious sunshine but as Monday rolled around, the rain and fog started to descend. Oops.
By accident we’d picked the entirely wrong week to visit the beach. And it ended up being completely enrobed in fog for the five hours we were there. It didn’t stop us from having fun though! We walked along the beach and pier, climbed the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey, ate the famous fish and chips at Magpie Cafe, and spent all our 2ps in the arcades.
Despite the awful weather, it was a really lovely day. And, I managed to drive on busy roads again, in a totally different car. Pretty proud of myself for a second time now! Whitby was the perfect place to escape the city for a few hours and spend some quality time by the sea. I can only imagine how much nicer it is in the summer, so we’ll definitely have to go back when there’s the guarantee of some sunshine.
We did manage to vlog a bit of our day, so please excuse the non-existent scenery!
And here’s a bunch of photos that show actually how pretty Whitby can be – even in the bad weather.
