So, having worked a lot over Christmas and New Years I decided to go on a little jaunt to get away from work and home.
After spending a couple of days with friends in Hull – and popping over to the Deep to see their Penguins – I headed over to Whitby for a couple of nights.
It didn’t take long to get from Hull to Whitby, only a couple of hours and although the drive was miserable by the time I got there the mist had cleared and turned into a beautiful day.
Not being able to check into the hostel – YHA Whitby – until 2, I decided to go for a walk into town, and along the pier.
An afternoon spent wandering was fuelled by the classic Whitby Fish & Chips for lunch before I headed to the hostel, checked in and had a well deserved rest!
The second day in Whitby had me heading down to Robin Hood’s Bay for hike down their old town and a stroll along the beach. Such a beautiful quaint town, but being Jan everything was shut – just like Whitby and it’s Abbey.
Time for a quick selfie on the beach before heading back!
Whitby is a beautiful place in the Winter, the only issue is every thing was closed! I will hopefully be returning in the summer when it’s warmer!
