'Scene' Around Whitby 1/14

A series of odd bits and pieces I saw around Whitby in May.

 

I came upon this cafe along the quay one morning.  It was closed so I couldn't go in and sample the tarts, just as well, Maureen said they are not good for me at my age!

Shame on Maureen Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Michael.

Well...I suppose Maureen knows you better than I do, Brian...but, in my experience tarts are good for you at any age!
Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more Ray, one can get them by the dozen in our local supermarket!
I think that Maureen means that if you get with a Tart!!!.... you may not live through it Brian.... only your doctor knows for suregrin.... fine shot though....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, with my heart problems any sort of tart could be a bit dodgy.
With a name like this it deserves to prosper
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Bill so why wasn't it open I wonder.

HA! As they say, it takes a tart to know one, Brian. grin
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. This image has conjured up all sorts of questionable comments from some of our male friends, which it was supposed to do of course smile

I've always enjoyed a nice little tart Brian
Brian Walbey: And big ones as well no doubt Chris smile
I love the colour and the name of this shop. Perhaps Maureen was right about the tarts - depending on your interpretation of it. LOL!!!
Brian Walbey: Surely it must be referring to jam tarts Sheila, at my age I don't know of any other kind smile

Maybe not good, but committing a 'crime' every once in a while does taste good grin...
A great shot and they should have been open, this is bad publicity wink
Brian Walbey: Yes I couldn't understand it not being open, it is right down on the quay where all the visitors go.
Never been big on tea, always preferred coffee, but the occasional tart is a different story.
Brian Walbey: I think I know what you mean John, I'm more of a coffee man also.
Maureen don't know nuffin' ... You might as well go out on a high
Brian Walbey: Yes but not just yet Richard.
I love the red in this one, stands out
Brian Walbey: That and the name of the cafe really catch the eye, which of course they were meant to.
Well seen Brian, I'm not getting drawn into this discussion.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, safer to sit this one out I suspect.

Makes a change from Vicars and Tarts! Just closed at the time all for good?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.

Ha ha ha, Maureen's right of course!! Way to many...... calories grin
Brian Walbey: yes indeed Linda!!

Ha ha - and she would be right Brian ;o)
Brian Walbey: She would be at my age Mike, sadly.
It has that abandoned look to it, Brian. I doubt if they are serving up tea and high calorie tarts to anyone anymore. My neighbour, now living in Regina, used to make the best butter tarts, bar none, as part of her Christmas baking. I sure miss those tasty treats.
Brian Walbey: I bet you do Beverly. I still have a sweet tooth by try not to be too greedy with sweet stuff.

Maureen is known as such a dear wife - I cannot believe that she begrudged you such a sweet tart -maybe, she thought my bakery is quite better for him- and I read some times that she is a very talented baker, her fruit cake is SC-wide known! I like the wooden red facade and the fine white letters, it's a pity that such a nice little tearoom has been closed, but perhaps the red door can tell the owners that two VIP' s with camera ...were very interested in this Cafè.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. I don't think think it was completely closed, just not open at the time of the day.

I'm greedy Brian, I'll have both.
Brian Walbey: You must be a man with big appetites Chad.
Brian, I like this photo, simple but very interesting. Too bad you didn't get a tart smile
Brian Walbey: I prefer a doughnut to be honest Frances, I presume you get those in the States.
