Whitby 'Choccie Box' Style 14/14

And so to finish the series another full blown "choccie box" style picture of Whitby, this really interesting little town and resort on the North Yorkshire coast.

 

If you live in the U.K.then this is one place you should visit, definitely with your camera, and I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy it.

 

I will be continuing to show some other aspects of Whitby for the next couple of weeks that isn't "choccie box."

I like the action here, Brian...sort of like you consumed the whole box of chocolates and got a "rush" from it.
Brian Walbey: Yes I suppose you could call it a summing-up shot Ray. BTW I suspect you might find tomorrows shot slightly amusing.
This shot has a great feeling to it Brian....everything in the village is so neat and tidy....but i love the curved fence in the slip beside the orange rescue boatsmile....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. This sort of sums up what the harbour area of Whitby is like.
nice castle on the hill
Brian Walbey: The castle is an old church Chantal and is supposedly the one featured in Bram Stokers Dracula novel if you are familiar with that.
A lovely shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Pamela.
Hi Brian, Great shot! I always enjoy coastal photos and this one does nicely. The orange boat is a real eye catcher. frances
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Frances, the orange boat is the local lifeboat.
A fine ending. We can pretend we4 are in the boat leaving choccie box Whitby.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. In fact I am posting two further weeks of things I saw in Whitby but not "choccie box" this time, but a real mixed bag of subjects.

The like a castle looking church is the on the top, and I like how our eyes are wandering from the harbour via the rows of old and modern houses up to the top of the hill - I remember this look but the abbey ruins have ben engraved in my mind in the most intensive way.
Seriously, I like 'choccie box', and after the terrible pictures from the last week that went around the world I think we need some beautiful images as I now love reading positive news about many examples of helpfulness and cooperativeness among the citizens in England.
Brian Walbey: Your remarks on this series tell me you have been to, and enjoyed Whitby Philine. Thanks for your comments, sadly I have to agree with your remark about the terrible pictures of England going round the world, what have the decision makers done over the years to turn a lot of our young people, and their parent/s into people like those we saw, all very sad, and frightening.

It's always somewhere I want to visit, Brian. I'm in North Yorkshire over the New Year. The light (if any!) will be a lot different then smile
Brian Walbey: If you get the chance at New Year try and visit Whitby Alan, it would be interesting to see what it is like at that time of year. Also Runswick Bay, which I showed a few weeks back, and Robin Hoods Bay, which I am showing shortly, are both worthy of visits also. The latter is the end of the famous coast-to-coast walk which might interest you.
You should have had this one on Friday, Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Yes it was a toss-up between this and the boats that I actually showed on Friday, I have another for this coming Friday.
Again a lovely shot of Whitby and you have got a castle in too
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. The castle is in fact the church that was made famous in Bram Stokers novel Dracula.
