Runswick Bay 2/5

The Thatched Cottage at the end of the sea defences breakwater is now a Grace and Favour residence of the Marquees of Normanby but with its unrivalled view of the bay it was formerly the coastguard’s house.  It is now the only thatched roof cottage left in the village.

A lovely photograph with a great range of colors... the flowers and sunshine make it feel like summer!
Brian Walbey: It was a lovely mid-May sunny morning Elizabeth, I bet it is different on a stormy winter morning.
Oh!!! Brian....i like this angle....great composition....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Peter.
Great image Brian, I can smell the seaweed from here.
Brian Walbey: It really did have that lovely sea smell to it Martin, a change to hot dogs et al at Scarborough just down the coast.

Great picture, I never get tired of places like this, so much to see and explore, I always have to see what is in between those rocks...
This picture is postcard worthy.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Astrid. I told Ginnie yesterday that I thought you two would enjoy a visit to this delightful place, and then enjoy lunch in the little cafe above the beach. Sadly this place is too far from Chris's home for you to make a flying visit in September.

It looks as if it could be quite tidal here Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes right up to the wall Chris, and probably over it in the winter!
nice angle for this view
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
The classic view, I would not mind owning that cottage smile
Brian Walbey: This is a well photographed cottage John, but I guess, like me, it is nicer to be in it during the summer than in the winter.
Lovely shot Brian,looks like an interesting place, the thatch looks a bit worse for wear, not surprising in that position.
Brian Walbey: Yes I bet this cottage takes a hammering in mid-winter storms Frank.
Now I wouldn't mind living there. Lovely shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes but does that mean in mid-winter also Janet when the storms blow in from across the North Sea. Thanks for your comment.
Your composition is very nice and the image quite charming.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Mary.
I bet it doesn't look so idylic in a force 10 galegrin
Brian Walbey: No I bet it doesn't Bill.

Delightful Brian - I love hearing the sound of crashing waves from my bed!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike, but the idea of a force 10 coming in across the North Sea in mid December might dampen your enthusiasm somewhat smile

The cottage lends such charm to this scene Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little cottage isn't it Chad.

Fantastic position - I hope the Marquess appreciates it!
Brian Walbey: But not such a good position in the middle of a winter storm I suspect Ingrid.

I'm surprised to see that it thatched; not something I associated with that part of the world. What a superb position, though!
Brian Walbey: Yes prime position Alan, but would you want to live in it during a strong winter storm, I wouldn't.

Oh yes, Brian. I was drawn to it right away when I saw it in Fridays's image. What a photo op!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Ginnie.
