Spent a wonderful evening with Mama Bear in Whitby, where we ate dinner by the largest piece of jet (swipe left for close ups) and I convinced her to finally do a ghost walk with me #familytime#whitby#whitbyjet#ammonite#fossils

20190817 Whitby trip
來到Whitby(惠特比)後，第一印象覺得這是被海鷗占領的小鎮😂在大家頭上一直有海鷗在高處長嘯，這樣的背景音下，看到活潑的民族舞蹈表演，偶爾配上海盜裝扮的人走過去，常常讓我想到Pirates of the Caribbean(神鬼奇航)🏴☠️
先去吃了午飯——沒有我想像中的海鮮，餐館裡還是fish and chips（炸魚薯條）😭上次在durham吃過一次之後，真的怕了這個東西，直接繞過uk第一名的fish and chips餐廳，直接在海灘旁的餐廳草草解決午飯（btw我吃的午飯還是有chips薯條，因為不想吃麵包當午飯，我對UK的餐點選擇稀少感到絕望⋯⋯）
Cobbles, cottages, Yorkshire Tea and a perfect little snicket! Good morning from Robin Hood's Bay, Yorkshire ☕️ Love this by @carolines_travelling_camera
A snicket, in case you were wondering, is an northern English term for a narrow passage between houses..an alleyway. Sound quite Harry Potterish doesn’t it? Love this little backstreet with the mixture of old cobbles, cottages and steps.
Robin Hood’s Bay is a glorious small fishing village and bay located within the North York Moors National Park, five miles south of Whitby and 15 miles north of Scarborough on the coast of North Yorkshire, England.
Over a thousand years ago, the village and the surrounding area of Fylingdales were very much a closed community as it was so cut off. Because of this, many of the inhabitants to this day are direct descendants of the original Viking raiders who settled here to farm and fish around 850AD. So if you see any locals wearing horned helmets, screaming and throwing axes as you order tea and crumpets, you know why.
The Vikings even managed to secure two of the days of the week—Thursday – “Thor’s Day” and Tuesday – from “Tiw’s Da.” (He was the god of single combat, and law and justice in Norse mythology)
Have a super day! Lovely shot by @carolines_travelling_camera 🇬🇧 To be featured - follow and tag us! ‘Ta! 🇬🇧
Staithes "Staithes is a very picturesque fishing village in the Yorkshire Moors National Park .
Nestled between two cliffs, the sleepy hamlet gives the illusion as if nothing has changed since for hundreds of years.
One of Staithes most famous residents was the young James Cook who went on to discover Australia and complete the first circumnavigation of New Zealand. Captain Cook was an apprentice at Staithes before he moved to Whitby" 📸@_alina_dragan_
Sharing a photo I’ve already shared because I’m fast running out of photos 🙊 feeling in need of another adventure somewhere a little sunnier than what the UK has been recently, I rarely take my camera into London anymore because apart from some fabulous eyes creams I have my eye on I feel like I’ve exhausted it and need a break from it, same with the Cotswolds really 😵 Not sure if I’m tired, uninspired or just going to the same places too many times! Itching for September because it means I can visit some European cities without being run over by hoards of people. Forever wishing I could bring Baxter with me but unless I drive, I can’t take him over the border because he isn’t allowed on the Eurostar 💔
In other news! How pretty is Whitby in the sunshine? Whitby was originally called Sinus Fari by the Brigantes who were a Celtic tribe controlling large sections of Northern England but by 71 AD they had been conquered by the Romans. In 657 AD Whitby became known as Streonshalh when the then Christian King of Northumbria, Oswy founded a monastery and Abbey there. The Vikings arrived in 867 AD destroying the monastery and renaming the settlement Whitby from the old Norse for White Settlement.
In the mid 18th-19th century there were bustling shipyards, ropeworks and sail yards in Whitby and ships such as HMS Bark Endeavour, Resolution and Adventure were built there. But by the mid the 19th century the shipbuilding and whaling industries were in decline and it was hoped that the railway would help to regenerate the town. A new development began to grow on the West side of the river designed with tourism in mind including a promenade, bandstand and luxury hotels. It is still a busy working environment with a fishing fleet, pleasure boats, ship building works, dry dock and of course the lifeboat which was one of the earliest to be established in 1802.
Whitby has become very famous for its fish and chips 🍟🐟 Have you tried them?
Getting ready for our beer release and Jenga tournament! @brewwizardscafe and the @blueladyfoodtruck are onsite and we're ready for an amazing day.
And the beer release! The Little Wizard is a Margarita Gose. Lightly tart with heavy notes of lime, a hint of orange and a little salty kick in the finish. Perfect for those hot (or rainy and humid!) summer days.
